Burn by Night III

2017 line up

<div class="w3-center">In <b>Dani Karis</b>'s spirited, award winning songwriting you will hear her challenge the Union Jack, dance at a loud Irish wedding, contemplate the mysterious, get into a bar fight and face down death itself. In between there is love, life, passion and frailty. You will meet your own stores all over again through her voice and melodies.</div>

<div class="w3-center"><b>Tony Wilson</b> - Tony started out playing in pubs in the Blue Mtns at the age of 15…and has been playing music ever since. The weekly Bundeena Open Mic nights were started by Tony & Phil Gissing in 2004, and many fantastic musical combos have evolved from this.  He has a wealth of musical material (modern blues/rock), and is apparently one of the best purveyors of Oz Rock in the nation (thanks Frazer!)!</div>

<div class="w3-center"><b>Mr Harvey</b> - Burn by Night's prodigal son returns, armed with all new original material.</div>

<div class="w3-center"><b>Matt Thomson</b> - Since composing and performing the music for the sell-out season of indie theatre hit 'Macondo's Clothesline' last year, Matt has been hard at work creating new solo material. Matt's songs have been described as having a rare tenderness and poignancy. In addition to his own material, Matt also performs songs that he's co-written with lyricist Eli Desovska. The result is a richly varied collection of original gems, with an indie-folk bent.</div>

Mr Bamboo - After over a decade of playing and nonsense, with a few years hiatus here and there due to life abroad, the Mr Bamboo trio is...well...still doing it! And why not, it makes us happy and it's free therapy.
The sounds of Mr Bamboo could be described as gypsy swing meets the likes of Tom Waits, Devo and Ween, blended into an awe inspiring daiquiri to form this amusing and highly original skank/jazz/noise/pop trio that is sweet, fulfilling, drunk and eventually sour.
Made up of Ba on Guitar and sounds, Am on Vocals and Violin and Boo on Bass/percussion/vocals and loops, Mr Bamboo produce a humorous sound that combines acoustic instruments with Lo Fi electronics. 
Mr Bamboo explores complex human traits from paranoia, relationships, cleanliness, adventure, physical expression of desire and the taboos that surround such delicate issues, all without having to resort to a shred of seriousnesses.
Mr Bamboo will either make you laugh, cry, contemplate or drunk.
Do come along. Thanks.

    <b>Balaclava Weather</b> layer fierce vocals over dreamlike melodies to create their own brand of vandalised electronic punk. Narcotic. Uninhibited. Unapologetic. Their pop crimes explore the latitude of raw, unfiltered human emotion. They endeavour to capture the colour of the new Australian gothic.
Self-titled Balaclava Weather album set for release Winter 2017

<b>Born in October</b>


Fresh from the Tamworth Country Music Festival, city boy Matt Thomson (vocals, guitar) and country girl Rachel Webster (vocals, guitar, ukulele and shaker!) comprise indie/folk duo Born in October. Synergistic and emotive harmonies along with wistful finger picking and splashes of unusual rhthyms will take you on a gentle carpet ride over mountain streams... After meeting at a songwriter night in Sydney in 2013 and at the wise suggestion of a much loved artist and mentor, Matt and Rachel began writing songs together, forging an instant musical connection. Look out for their new EP expected mid 2017!

From Goulburn NSW below the foothills of the Cookbundoon Ridges and in the shadow of the revolving light of Rocky Hill comes the "Rocky Hill Billies" band of four Americana Country players who share a love of singing and playing music.
Formed in 2015 sitting and singing on the veranda of the Goulburn Club, the band consists of Faith White (guitar &amp; vocals) originally form the good ole" US of A;  Greg Angus (guango &amp; vocals) originally from Rotterdam New York; Ron McLaughlin (guitar and vocals) originally from Sydney, NSW and Griz Kitchener (slide dobro) originally from Swinging sixties London. Together they play loose arrangements of favourite songs affectionately referred to as their "music with the dirt left on!"

In the early mornings, Mittagong-based <b>Nick Rheinberger</b> is an ABC radio presenter. But in the evenings, Nick's other side comes out, and he's leading big blues bands, small jazz combos and looping himself silly with an assortment of instruments. Poems may come out, as well as audience participation and possibly some children's songs. Be prepared.

What's the point of hosting your own festival if you can't put yourself on the bill- bachanalia, mayhem, ukulele's.


Fifty years to an overnight success!!   John has had the good fortune to have learned and played music in many parts of the world – Canada, US, Europe, England, Africa.   Originally from Canada, he migrated to our fair shores a few years ago and raised a family here.  
He has been playing in Sydney and surrounds for a number of years and has toured northern England and Ireland on a couple of occasions.  Also managed to sneak back to Canada for a while, playing Seattle when no one was looking, and Calgary. 
If you like a bit of finger picking guitar with your music, you’ll enjoy John.  Styles like Jorma Kaukonen, of Hot Tuna; Stephen Stills, of CSNY.  A bit of old blues with some just now variety.

David (DT) Tunnicliffe meanders between blues codger and flamenco noodler; he has given up trying to decide what music he likes best and will play anything with anybody.  He will be appearing with the amazing chanteuse Chris Howe and, more than likely, popping up in dark musical corners throughout.

31st Mar - 2nd Apr 2017

The Yurtfarm

1688 Range Rd, Goulburn, New South Wales 2580

For those who are new to this, let me fill you in on how this works. Burn By Night is Australia's most exclusive festival, providing a smorgasbord of live music under the Goulburn night sky, for a fraction of the cost of one of those fancy pants city festivals. If you're seeing this post, that means you made the cut and are officially invited.

Yurts Baby!!
Yurts Baby!!

The festival takes place on the beautiful Goulburn Yurt Farm. By day this place is a hobby farm aimed at kids so the festival is kid and family friendly. If you're curious what a Yurt Farm is, well, I'm glad you asked. It's one of those Smurf houses in the title picture of this FB event. That's right - if you get in quick you can secure one of these perfect little cottages for yourself. Some have wee kitchens, some have working fireplaces, all of them are fantastic.

An average yurt sleeps around 6 adults, and spaces are limited, so please get in fast if you want to secure a yurt berth.

And hey if Smurfs freak you out, you can pay less to sleep in your own tent or campervan. Camping spaces are UNLIMITED!!!


Tickets are available on a per-person per-night basis, and can be purchased here

Prices are...

  1. Yurt: $40 per person per night
  2. Camping $30 per person per night
  3. Kids under 12 are free :)
  4. Musicians are free

what to bring

Hey everyone, see below a list of useful information on essentials to bring and details of some of the commodities the farm has to offer:

What to bring:

  1. Bring your tickets. You buy your tickets here and you can print them out from the eventbrite website. If you forget your tickets, it's ok. The kid on the door will have your name on hand. If you don't buy ticket's you'll have to buy them at the gate, so you'll need cash, we cant take cards at the gate. It will make your entry (fnar) go so much smoother if you buy your tickets in advance and print them out.
  2. Water.
  3. Food. You have to eat dude. So bring food for yourself for the weekend. It's really nice if you can bring something to share as well, people get a kick out of that. On Saturday there will be some hot dogs for sale thanks to the hawt dawgs from Gypsy Journey, but they'll disappear fast I guarantee.
  4. Esky and ice. Please bring lots of ice (there're no fridges and electricity)
  5. Torch/lamps
  6. Camping bedding.
  7. Festival (rain) poncho (just in case)
  8. Toilet paper. Oh my god, how important is this? Imagine if you forgot to bring toilet paper and you had to go tent to tent asking to borrow a few squares from each tent. That would be mortifying. Go put the toilet paper in the back of the car now while you think about it.
  9. A tent if you require one. If you didn't book and pay for a yurt already then you require one.
  10. Wellies. Or stilletos. Your call. It's a farm though.
  11. Insect repellent
  12. First aid supplies
  13. Something warm
  14. Bin bags. We ask that everyone leaves the farm as we found it. Please take as much of your own rubbish away with you.
  15. Camping chairs and rugs if you require
  16. There are a few saucepans and utensils in the little camping kitchen so you may find something to cook with or in.

    There will be open fires, a BBQ and pizza ovens which you can use to cook on and in.

    I can't stress enough that you will not want to leave the yurt village to get supplies from town due to the 30 min drive, and the extreme awesomeness of the venue and talent, so ensure you bring enough food and drink to last you the weekend.
