Aireys Inlet Open Mic Music Festival

Our festival is unique in many respects, in particular entry to the festival is free. We provide donation buckets and people pay what they think it is worth.

The Aireys Inlet Open Mic starts on the Friday evening at the Aireys pub and runs through until late Sunday afternoon. The whole town comes alive with  9 stages over 3 days and including more than 140 acts. There really is something for everyone.

The festival provides a fantastic opportunity for up and coming musicians as well as established acts to perform to large crowds with professional sound equipment and stage crew.  Since the festival was created it has inspired the formation of over 40 local bands.

Each year we have a Special Mystery Guest to close the festival. Colin Hay, Dan Sultan, Tim Rogers, Mark Seymour, The Hoodoo Gurus, Rockwiz Orkestra with Ella Hooper and Vika and Linda Bull, Tash Sultana and the Pierce Brothers have all appear in our little coastal town as the Special mystery guest. 

For many reasons, events may be cancelled, postponed or details changed. Please check the individual event's official website or social media channels for the latest information.
