Toodyay Music Fest 2020

The Toodyay Music Fest working group, have been hard at work behind the scenes and have managed to secure enough funds to give the 2020 Toodyay Music Festival on Saturday, March 28 2020 a big green light! We are very excited to be headlining superstar James Blundell, as well as a host of other brilliant performers.

We have attracted a full and dynamic line up of musical acts who are excited to join us on the day across three stages and five busking stations, bringing music into the streetscape of Toodyay for a free, fun filled day of entertainment. Unfortunately, unless we are able to attract more funds in the next couple of weeks, we will not be able to provide the full three stage event we have planned, and will have to turn some performers away.

One or two larger donors from previous years are back in 2020 to support the Music Fest, but due to their funding constraints, are not able to match their previous donations. We are still waiting for responses from other grant applications and may not know how many of those applications have been successful – or how much we are granted - until within a week or two of the festival’s date, as happened in 2019. However, for this year we have already locally raised significantly more funds than ever before. This, in part, is thanks to the generosity of Toodyay people and also the fantastic generosity of WA Opera’s Emma Pettemerides and of the Freeze Frame Opera Company, who performed in a fundraising event in the Memorial Hall to raise funds last September.

So we need your help to make this little festival bigger and better than ever. We are actively pursuing further funds from grants and sponsorships but are hoping the local community will consider donating to our Go Fund Me page, as well as sharing this link among your networks Our Facebook page will keep you up to date with our plans, as well as introducing you to some of our performers ahead of time, so jump on there and give us a like!

Every little bit counts and all offers of funds, talents and ideas are welcome! Make sure you pop the 2020 Toodyay Music Festival on Saturday, March 28 into your diary and let’s get ready to rock!
