The one-of-a-kind Strings Attached Guitar Festival will return to Margaret River in 2022, with another exceptional line-up announced for the October 7 – 9 event. Big names including Jeff Lang, Felicity Urquhart, and Josh Cunningham will headline this year’s festival.
The festival is the only one of its kind in Western Australia, and features specialist workshops and vintage instrument collections alongside live music performances.
Events will be hosted at different venues around the Margaret River township, with a central hub at the Margaret River HEART. Festival Director Dan White says the multi-venue structure means that at any time patrons can find an act or exhibition that matches their particular taste, while celebrating the multitude of sub-cultures and genres within the guitar community.
“We’ve got lots of things happening at the same time, performances and exhibitions. So there’s lots of different options for people to check different events out. If one is not their cup of tea there is guaranteed to be something else on at the same time.”
The vibrations that can be made from a guitar are so wide-ranging and varied, and this festival brings all of those sounds and the cultures that have evolved about them together under the one banner, says Dan.
