High Country music to ignite Bright at DARKER DAYS

Hear, see and dance to the mountain’s songs at Darker Days

It’s now less than 2 weeks to the inaugural DARKER DAYS, a new mid-winter festival created by Bright Brewery to celebrate winter in Bright.

DARKER DAYS will bring together High Country producers and operators, entertainers, craft beer and gourmet food lovers, and families to toast the season and welcome the return of lighter days following the Winter Solstice.

This new family friendly festival will be centred around locally produced dark beers and warming foods, along with live music and winter activities.  After the sun sets, Bright Brewery’s riverside lands will truly come alive with a spectacular ceremonial burning of a giant wooden structure in the shape of the brewery’s logo, which was revealed at the recent Bright Autumn Festival Gala Day parade.

Bright Brewery is excited to announce the line-up of talent that will provide the warming soundtrack for the festival, with 3 artists from North East Victoria adding a truly local sound to the event.

The DARKER DAYS music will kick off with the smooth indie rock and acoustic tunes of talented singer/songwriter/guitarist Mcrobin. Following the lighting of the Darker Days bonfire, Molly’s Dream will hit the stage. Echoing from the hills of North East Victoria, Molly’s Dream is fast becoming a crowd favourite on the Bluegrass scene. The multi-instrumental talent and sweet harmonies of Molly’s Dream are something to behold.

And then, as the real darkness and cold settles in, DARKER DAYS will finish with a massive DJ set by the Hillbilly DJs! Often found burning up the dance floor at Mt Buller, the Hillbilly DJs will make sure that their beats fire up all who embrace night-time celebrations, in what is sure to be one of the most fun and fire-themed DJ sets Bright has ever experienced!

  • 2pm – 5pm: Mcrobin (James McGuffie, from Myrtleford)
  • 5:30pm – 8:30pm: Molly’s Dream (Isabel Paton, Josh Grundy, Aron Mclean from Porepunkah/Beechworth)
