GOOD TIMES. GOOD MUSIC. GOOD MEMORIES!
A biennial feature on the Newcastle music calendar, The Newkulele Festival offers a fantastic weekend celebrating the sounds of the ukulele. This unique event is open to all the family and suitable for any age group, and has a special appeal for music lovers.
The Festival features international acts and players from across Australia covering a wide range of music styles and accompanying instruments. Come along for two days and nights to feast on the diversity of sounds created around the beautiful, humble ukulele. The festival offers three stages of FREE music, markets, open mic opportunities, a cafe and bar, workshops and two fabulous ticketed evening concerts - all inside Newcastle City Hall.
Newcastle is 160km north of Sydney via the M1 Motorway and is well serviced by both air and train transport. It is NSW’s second largest city, on a beautiful string of beaches at the mouth of the Hunter River. As well as having an historic city centre and vibrant foreshore, Newcastle is relatively uncrowded and only a 20 minute drive, from beautiful Lake Macquarie, Australia’s largest coastal salt water lake. Not to mention the Hunter Valley wineries!
