Alfresco Festival is much loved by all who attend. No other festival lets you lose yourself in nature immersed in a soundtrack so expertly curated, yet which maintains the family-friendly vibe of a real community. Genuine legends mix with up and coming talent, as old friends mix with new faces to create a unique atmosphere. Boutique glamping by the beautiful riverside adds to the charm, and for the first time this year, Alfresco also boasts its own motel, bookable by the night.
Alfresco sells out every year and with the range of stages set to entertain now revealed, 2019 will surely follow suit. The woods are calling…
