Tucker and Tunes featuring traditional flavours and the sounds of Busby Marou is one of the standout events of this year’s Milbi Festival set to feature prominent First Nations artists.

In addition to the iconic Aussie duo, Ash Grunwald and Alex Lloyd will also perform at various festival events after Bundaberg Regional Council agreed to engage the musicians for the 10-day event which kicks off on October 29.

With the full event program, celebrating arts, culture and the environment, set to launch this Thursday, Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the festival would reach new heights this year.

“The inaugural Milbi Festival, launched in 2019, was a resounding success and the addition of new, exciting events in this year’s program really raises the bar,” Cr Learmonth said.

“These highly renowned Australian musicians will deliver first class performances at events that will celebrate our local environment and culture.”

One of the highlights of this year’s program will be an Indigenous dining experience where Busby Marou will perform.

“Milbi Tucker and Tunes will see event goers relax on the lawns of Fairymead House with a picnic hamper inspired by traditional, native flavours,” Cr Learmonth said.

“Aussie duo Busby Marou will set the atmosphere with their much-loved music in what I have no doubt will be a highly sought-after event.”

Among Busby Marou’s countless successes, the award-winning duo has won three APRA awards and two Deadly awards in addition to an ARIA nomination.

Cr Learmonth said residents should stay tuned for the release of the full program with the launch of more exciting events still to come including Milbi at the Lighthouse, the Milbi Gala Ball, a film program and tours.

The full Milbi Festival 2021 program will be launched this Friday 3 September.
