Between The Bays Festival
Between The Bays is not your average festival, set on a delightful 35-acre rural property in Moorooduc on the Mornington Peninsula, just a short 1 hour drive from Melbourne, and offers music lovers a festival option with it’s chilled out vibe, that is inexpensive for the whole family and it’s all-inclusive community feel.
Now in its 9th year, Between the Bays is firmly established as Mornington Peninsula’s best annual summer music festival that also gives back to the community with all proceeds raised going to Penbank School’s partnership with the Wugularr School in the Northern Territory.
This year’s massive line up includes Tex Perkins with The Ape, Diesel, Daryl Braithwaite, The Basics, Boom Crash Opera and local act Russell Beggs kicking off the entertainment.
“Our philosophy for Between the Bays Music Festival is that it is an all inclusive, family affordable showcase of Australian music, and all things Mornington Peninsula. Whether you are 5 or 50, you will enjoy your day in a relaxed and safe atmosphere. It’s for everybody.
It is not pretentious, exclusive and certainly not unaffordable. Tex Perkins, Diesel, Daryl Braithwaite and Boom Crash Opera with great food and beverages on hand and fun for the kids as well - all for an adult price of $69.95….just show me better value for that price!
On Saturday 22rd February 2013, I encourage people from Melbourne to jump on the new Peninsula Link, and 45mins later you will be at Between the Bays Music Festival - you won't be disappointed”.
- Paul Thompson (Festival Director)
Between The Bays is not just about music, there is something for everyone including children, food lovers and the wine and beer connoisseur. As the sun sets over the picturesque 35 acres in Moorooduc on the Mornington Peninsula, you can sample a broad range of culinary delights to keep you going throughout the day, from a simple sausage sizzle, ice-cream treats, to yummy delights such as wood fired pizza’s, calamari, vegetarian options and wonderful coffee, including plenty of kid-friendly options as well!
This year, you won’t be let down by the range of beverages as Between the Bays have employed festival specialists to run their bar. There will be an array of local beer and wine on hand with drinks available from gates open and for those not drinking alcohol, you are welcome to bring your own water bottle to refill throughout the day the FREE WATER STATION.
If you would rather bring your own food, feel free to pack your own gourmet picnic and bring it along (just remember no glass).
The festival will once again have a great variety of kid’s rides; children will be able to purchase a wristband for unlimited rides throughout the day.
Between the Bays takes place at Penbank, located at the end of Rickards Road in Moorooduc, Mornington Peninsula approximately 1 hour south of Melbourne. There are 35 beautiful acres to spread out in and enjoy the day, nestled between the bays (Westernport and Port Phillip Bay) and just five minutes from Mornington, which has many different accommodation options.
If driving, there is parking on the site on the day, managed by The Lions Club on the day, the cost is a small gold coin donation.
If you prefer not to drive, Between The Bays will again be running a shuttle bus to and from the festival site, with two-pick up/drop off points connecting with public transport running throughout the day and into the evening.
