For a boutique festival, Mullum Music Festival sure packs a lot into one little town. With more than 90 acts performing across 14 different venues as well as markets, pop-ups and street performances, Mullum Music Festival is an adventure with new delights to discover at every turn.
Corner The Market
What better way to ease into your festival than with the perfect coffee and delicious breakfast made from locally grown produce at Mullumbimby’s world-famous Farmers Markets. Relax under the shade of the beautiful fig trees, enjoy a free concert by Shelly Brown and the Fortunate Souls and eavesdrop on the ABC North Coast outside broadcast where festival acts drop by for interviews and acoustic performances.
The Farmers Markets take place 8am - 11am at Mullumbimby Showgrounds
One To Watch
Don’t miss Melbourne’s newest future soul and R&B artist KAIIT, who blew the music industry away at BIGSOUND recently. Like Tash Sultana at Mullum Festival in 2016, KAITT is the one to watch at Mullum this year. See her now when you can still get up close!

Deep soul, gospel and ‘sacred steel’ blues direct from the USA (along with help from Backsliders Dom Turner) with The Turner Brown Band. This is the real deal and captivating.
