Connect is a festival for music fans.
We celebrate the eclectic, the cutting edge, the creative, whether that’s from established international acts or emerging talents. This is your time to reconnect with the music that matters to you. To enjoy live performances. To be part of a whole, sharing in the festival atmosphere that comes from rediscovering your favourite live performers and exploring the best of what’s new.
THE GRAND PARADE
It’s time to get up close to the biggest names in music as we welcome incredible acts from all over the world.
GUITARS & OTHER MACHINES
As supporters of the music scene at every level, we’ve created a space for the up-and-coming, the grassroots artists and your favourites of the future. You’ll find a few established heroes too.
Explore your adventurous side with an eclectic line-up of live performances, with performances from some of the best and up and coming electronic acts.
From comedy to spokenword. Connect is a place to discover something new, and this is where you’ll find it. The Speakeasy will host comedy, spoken word, conversations and live podcasts from a host of talent.
