The annual Nimbin Roots Festival in September is a great success for the Nimbin village. For those who like real music, living outside the square and don’t fancy being amongst thousands of screaming people squished into one arena then this festival is for you! Three days of non-stop folk and roots music from around Australia and abroad spread throughout the colourful village of Nimbin, Australia’s counter-culture capital.

There are no big headline acts at Nimbin Roots Festival, but every act is unique and a headline in their own right. During the festival there is the annual Australian Roots Music Awards on the Sunday night, as well as a Peace March on the main street of Nimbin on the Saturday.

This event features small, intimate stages dotted throughout the village with the colourful Nimbin community putting on a great show around every corner. The festival is very family friendly. Camping at the Nimbin Showground (with power and hot water showers) is just $10 per person per night and is five minutes’ walk to all the festival venues.

The Nimbin Chamber of Commerce is a major sponsor of this Festival.
