Lost Highway Bluegrass Music Festival

The Lost Highway Bluegrass Festival has built up a reputation as an ideal place for bluegrass players and enthusiasts to gather. This year, the festival will feature two all weather venues including a Big Top Tent and the popular Picker’s Paradise at the Karuah Community Hall.The mission of the Lost Highway festival is to create a festival where musicians, residents and music lovers can gather to enjoy acoustic music, share ideas, learn new music skills and enjoy a weekend of performances in a beautiful setting. Punters also have the chance to indulge in local food, fresh oysters, crafts or a beverage or two at the bar, all contained within the festival grounds.

The Lost Highway festival is run by a community who work hard to keep a boutique local feel to the event with tickets at a very reasonable price. It is family friendly, relaxed and inclusive, with plenty of support and involvement from the local community.
