It tends to be the case with most music festivals that there are a few gems that stick out amongst the lineup that make the experience all that more enjoyable. Headliners are often a major talking point for festivals, and often grab people’s attention first. However, there are often plenty of strong acts peppered throughout a lineup that can really make or break a lineup. These acts can sometimes be lost in the crowd, making it hard to discover the truly special artists. This year’s Bunbury Music Festival seemed to largely avoid this problem, either intentionally or otherwise, by having just 3 stages and a smaller lineup than years past. This made it much easier to explore different shows and possibly find the next band that’ll be dominating playlists for the rest of the summer. Read more
