Running from November 18th to 20th, the 2011 Commonground Festival is a new community music festival celebrating the social change movement. It will feature two days and two nights of rockin’ music, inspiring workshops and frolicking fun. Enjoy fantastic music, delicious, locally-grown food and lovely, spacious bush campsites.
The musical line up includes Stephen Pigram (from the Pigram Brothers), The Band Who Knew Too Much, Flap!, The Tiger and Me, The Shivering Timbers, The Stetson Family, April Maze, Beth King, The Grenadines, The Nymphs and Sun Hyland Band.
There will be workshops on activism, co-housing, working well together, growing your own food, drumming and singing, as well as comedy, face and body painting, and more.
The Festival will raise funds in order to assist Commonground to continue improving its facilities to support the social change sector. Commonground is a not-for-profit social enterprise, and all festival organisers are volunteers. It has been tirelessly co-organised by Dog and Bone's very own Dan McKinley, for whom Commonground was instrumental in shaping his life, although he had only limited say in the matter given he was brought up there.
