Far North Queensland's music and camping festival Savannah in the Round 2023 returns to Mareeba this month with a massive Aussie-centric line-up as well as a host of international stars.
The three-day festival from October 6-8, will feature rock music icon Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Daryl Braithwaite, Kate Ceberano, Don Walker, Beccy Cole, Adam Harvey, Brad Cox, James Johnston, Casey Barnes, Fanny Lumsden and Russell Morris plus many more musicians from around Australian and overseas.
This year, Savannah in the Round will also include a very special edition of the Great Northern Bullriding Series, which will see some of the world's best riders go head to head in a one-of-a-kind two-hour bull riding spectacular, soundtracked by some of Australia's best music.
In addition to Savannah in the Round's music offerings, visitors will be able to experience a range of camping, glamping and on-site festival delights ranging from a wide range of food and drink offerings to local artisanal arts and culture.
Alongside major, world class performances on Main Stage, at the Big Top Music Hall and in the Bull Bar, Savannah in the Round features Indigenous visual art, music and dance displays, a market village full of local produce and products, and an onsite paddock to plate experience showcasing the freshest local ingredients you can find north of the border.
"A few years ago I had the pleasure of heading to North Queensland as part of my Shutting Down Your Town tour and it re-opened my eyes to just how beautiful this country can be," said Jimmy Barnes. "With a combination of some of the country's most beautiful locations, populated by some great North Queensland music lovers, I couldn't be happier to be heading up to Mareeba for Savannah in the Round this year."
