This October, a stacked packed lineup of Australian artists is converging on regional Victoria for Now and Forever 2023 festival. Unlike last year’s First & Forever concert at Hanging Rock, Now & Forever is a distinct celebration with a profound message. While the former event was dedicated to showcasing Blak excellence. The latter unites Australian music icons in solidarity for the Aboriginal Voice To Parliament Referendum.
Now and Forever 2023
The Now & Forever music festival is at Shepparton Showgrounds, Yorta Yorta Woka. Just a week before the crucial referendum on Saturday, 14 October. Mark your calendars for Friday, 06 October, as the festival gates open at noon. And the live music extravaganza kicks off at 3 pm, extending into the evening.
An Impressive Lineup
The festival’s curator, Briggs, has assembled a stellar cast of Australia’s favorite artists, including A.B. Original, Baker Boy, Barkaa, Emma Donovan, Hilltop Hoods, Jimmy Barnes, Mo’Ju, and Paul Kelly. Adding to the excitement, comedian Sam Pang will take on hosting duties. Promising special guest appearances and memorable collaborations throughout the day.
Homecoming for Briggs
Briggs, the driving force behind Now & Forever, expressed his personal connection to Shepparton, stating. “I had to bring this home because this is where I grew up. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to write our future together. And the artists on the bill have signed up for that. This is about celebration, inclusivity, solidarity, positivity, and listening as much as it is about a voice. In that spirit, everyone is welcome to the show – even the undecided voters. And if you don’t know, just come to the show.”
Cheap & Accessible
Despite the festival’s grandeur, tickets are priced at an affordable $21.50. Briggs emphasizes his commitment to accessibility, saying. “I want to make this accessible for everyone and be able to give back to local and national charities doing good work.” All proceeds from Now and Forever 2023 will be donated to charities and not-for-profit organizations. Working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the region and across Victoria. Your attendance at this remarkable event will contribute to meaningful change.
