If you want a unique and memorable way to kick off the NSW winter ski season in style, the Perisher Snowy Mountains of Music Festival is a toe-tapping experience that offers fun for your entire family.
Held from Friday June 7 until Monday June 10, this four-day festival offers up a complete range of entertainment from around the world – allowing you to experience all different kinds of exciting music.
Add in the stunning natural backdrop of the famous Snowy Mountains and you have all the ingredients for an unforgettable winter weekend. More than 40 bands – and a total of 150 acts altogether – will take the stage during the festival, with performances beginning first thing in the morning and lasting until late at night.
All the action takes place in the beautiful Perisher Valley, which is home to some of the most spectacular alpine scenery in all of Australia, as well as some of the country’s top ski and snowboard resorts.
Past performers at the festival have included Blue King Brown, Tex Perkins, The Audreys, Kylie Auldist, Skipping Girl Vinegar, Ash Grunwald, The Woo Hoo Revue, Afro Moses, Mikelangelo and the Tin Star and Christine Anu just to name a few.
There is a dedicated children’s stage at the Festival and families can enjoy everything from storytelling to puppet shows, juggling workshops and bush dancing.
It’s well worth planning a few extra days to make the most of your time in the Perisher Valley. Home to several resorts – including Blue Cow, Guthega and Smiggin Holes – it is open for winter skiing from the June long weekend until October.
Even if skiing isn’t your thing there are still plenty of other things to see and do, from brilliant entertainment to fabulous food and wine.
