“The Harvest Home Festival takes place on the same site as the original Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival, which has been around for 46 years. It’s a beautiful place, and the idea was to present a festival featuring artists and bands that The East Pointers met along the way and listened to their music on repeat throughout the year” , said Jake Charron of The East Pointers. “We’ve been lucky enough to play amazing festivals around the world and we’re taking inspiration from some of our favourites. We are steps from the beach and have camping available on site.
