A little bit about French Fest
Our idea was to create an affordable, safe Party on New Years Eve, away from all the chaos but surrounded by good company, good vibes and amazing talent. Well on the Mornington Peninsula you can’t get much more secluded and serene than French Island and the vibes do not get much better than French Islands Music and Arts festival.
It was an idea built from the ground up, Literally – even the stage was hand built by crew from wood milled on the island by the locals.
Our focus is to highlight some of the talent that the Mornington Peninsula and Australia has to offer. Music ranging from acoustic, blues, Funk, Folk, Reggae, rock n roll, metal, hip hop, electronic, drum n bass, trance and dance. Also hosting a range of local artwork and Fresh produce.
We also have a strict NO DICKHEAD policy! We appreciate a good party, but it needs to be a good time for everyone, that includes our volunteers and staff that work hard to make French Fest happen.
It is BYO, BUT STRICTLY NO GLASS! We also have a bar selling amazing organically solar brewed beer & cider at very reasonable prices (Drink for the planet, Drink Good brew!) Along with all the other great sustainable local food stalls to get your taste buds watering.
This is a not for profit event, made for the people, by the people! This year our staff are all volunteering their time and efforts to make this an amazing experience. The cost of tickets goes towards getting onto the island, putting on the event and keeping you safe!
2014/15 brings you the 3rd annual French Fest, getting bigger and better every year! We are a not for profit organisation focused on supporting our local art, music and culture. We are scouting Victoria and Australia to bring you the best so come on and join the party, support our local artists and help make this a memorable experience for everyone involved.
