Surrey Hills Music Festival 2012

Surrey Hills Music Festival 2012

Taking place in the leafy eastern suburb of Surrey Hills, the music festival of the same name turned on a dry day for the first time in three years, as bands, choirs, soloists, junior bands and entertainers delivered a great day of community music.

Supported by the City of Boroondara, Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre, Bendigo Bank, New Litho and Metro, the Surrey Hills Music Festival is a brilliant, local, not-for-profit event run by a young executive organising group and an enthusiastic committee of volunteers.

All photos are available for purchase (free of watermark), via the buy links beneath each photo in the gallery. Print prices start at only $5.00 (4″x6″), with download prices from as little as $2.50 per picture (100+ quantity). Artists will receive a selection of complimentary photos from the organising committee.

Honestly, one of the picks of the day

The Jam Tarts Trio

A funky, dazzling feminine trio who bring a unique and colourful flavour to funky love songs from the 50s, 60s & 70s

Broken Strings

Fabulously creative and harmonic sounding young rock band made up of Grade 6 boys
