The Journey Continues.....

Anglesea Music Festival 18th-20th October 2013

Australia's newest and fastest growing music festival, receiving Australia Day 2013 Community Event of the Year from the Surf Coast Shire, has something for everyone.

The Anglesea Music Festival is just not another music festival. It is an annual gathering of friendly music fans, performers, travelers, locals and a special event in the Surf Coast Calendar. AMF transforms our small community into a vibrant, buzzing, exciting town celebrating live music. During the course of the festival, friendships are made and long time ones renewed, people from around the area meet with those from the other side of the world, and first-timers fall in love with all that Anglesea has to offer.
