10 Very Good Reasons To Make A Trip To Woodfordia...




Woodford Folk Festival 2013 Preview:
by Matt Bond


Woodford has grown into one of the most intriguing Australian music festivals and, heading into its 28th iteration, is offering the best line-up yet for potential punters. So instead of making New Year's plans that are certain to end with a three hour wait for a cab and a waste of money on entry to an overcrowded club you'll be sure to hate for the next five years... why don't you grab a bunch of your friends and head to Woodfordia for the 2013 Woodford Folk Festival, which runs from December 27 - January 1


Trade in the Krispy Kreme donuts from 7-11 and the dirty kebab from that shop in the Fortitude Valley you're convinced is bribing the health inspector for some fine food and drink from one of fifty-one cafes or restaurants, like Byron Bay Organic Doughnuts or Jerusalem Felafel. Instead of listening to your friend having a drunken break-down in the bathroom, you could be hanging out with Bob Hawke giving a talk in defence of modern democracy. And instead of listening to the mind-numbing doof-doof beats, surrounded by teenager chewing their faces off and vomiting in decorative pot plants, you could be listening to festival headliners - Beth Orton, Tim Finn and The Basics.


There's a hundred and one reasons to go to the Woodford Folk Festival, but we are all about the music around these parts... so here's ten very good reasons to make a trip to Woodfordia in December.

Trust me, it'll be better than waiting an hour and a half for a drink in an overcrowded club, surrounding by increasingly sweaty "people". P.s. you're welcome.
