Festival of Bluegrass & Old Time Music

Beechworth 18, 19 & 20 November 2022

Mountaingrass is Australasia’s premier bluegrass and old time music festival. It is brought to you by the Australasian Bluegrass and Old Time Music Association – ABOTMA.
It is with very heavy hearts that we must announce that we cannot go ahead with Mountaingrass again this year. To run a successful festival, we rely on our wonderful performers, volunteers, and dedicated patrons throughout Australasia. With COVID-19 case numbers rising, along with lockdowns and the travel restrictions impacting all of us, we cannot confidently go ahead with our plans. We must consider the health and safety of everyone involved in the festival and, unfortunately, there are just too many risks we cannot control. We are incredibly sad about this, and we will miss you all very much. We know that you were looking forward to getting together at Beechworth this year, especially as we had to cancel last year too. There are many of you who will have booked accommodation in and around Beechworth for the festival and you may now have to review your plans. Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone associated with the festival for your ongoing support and encouragement.
