Blues festival on track to return

After arriving with a bang in February 2019, the Mornington Peninsula Blues Festival is all primed to return to Mornington Racecourse on Saturday, February 8.

With nine world-class blues bands and artists, this celebration of the blues will also feature Peninsula food and wine and various craft markets. 

However, this time children aged 12 and under will be admitted free — making it a very special family-friendly event.

There will be various children’s activities such as face painting and a jumping castle to keep the younger kids entertained, while mum and Dad enjoy the world class blues food trucks, world class coffee and world class blues acts.   


However, this year's patrons will be permitted to bring their own snacks and food if they desire. Beer,Wine and bubbles will also be available at the mobile bar.


Festival organiser and Mount Martha resident Patrick Elliget is expecting a bumper crowd this year and has been very encouraged by the ticket sales so far, which is not surprising given the class of the line-up of leading Australian blues artists, including musicians from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and the Peninsula.


The event bus company Melbourne on the Move will again be providing return buses to the festival from Sorrento and the Melbourne CBD with designated stops en route.
