South Australia’s newest Festival, New Shoots Music Festival today announces its new date of April 2nd 2022, along with a new line up following the postponement of its November date due to COVID restrictions.
The inaugural New Shoots Music Festival, will now be held on Saturday, April 2nd at Penneshaw Oval, Kangaroo Island releases an incredible new line up led by acclaimed Melbourne trio Something For Kate, Iconic Aussie rockers Jebediah and South Australia’s own Bad//Dreems. They all join the already announced line up of Ash Grunwald, Maddy Jane, Tilly Tjala Thomas, Rat Tamango, and Kangaroo Island locals, Charlotte Gilfillan and Sam Kempster.
New Shoots will be the largest music event to take place on the island in more than a decade and the community is more than thrilled to play host, even after a bit of a delayed start, said East End Events Committee chair Andy Gilfillan.
“To say that KI has had its challenges in the last two years is a massive understatement. The landscape is now different physically and emotionally, it would be a bold statement to say the worst is behind us but it is definitely time to loosen the shackles, and we are excited to present – finally – the New Shoots Music Festival to be held at the Penneshaw oval April 2nd 2022.”
“New Shoots Music Festival intends to deliver a new annual music event utilizing and empowering the local community as much as possible, from KI based catering and beverage suppliers, transport and trades, and local staffing, plus a farmers market will be held on the same weekend to promote local produce. It will provide a significant visitation boost and help extend the tourism season.”
New Shoots Music Festival was developed with the spirt of supporting local and to keep this going, event organisers will be donating a portion of all ticket and merchandise sales to our key charities, BlazeAid and Breakthrough Foundation, who continue to be an incredible support to those affected by the Kangaroo Island fires.
New Shoots is a fully vaccinated event and offers camping facilities a stone’s throw away from the grounds at Penneshaw Golf Club so punters can live out their sorely missed festival dreams. If camping isn’t your thing, Kangaroo Island flaunts a range of accommodation options, with a multitude of hidden gems to choose from.
