WHAT IS GORGEOUS FESTIVAL?
Gorgeous Festival is an annual boutique music, food and wine festival, celebrating the flavours and creativity of South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula.
Like its name the festival is exactly that for the audience members – Gorgeous. Not simply a music festival, it is an experience encompassing the abundance and creativity of the region.
The musical lineup is hand picked to appeal to a broad audience. Headlining in 2011 was Australia’s own Icehouse, then in 2012 Missy Higgins graced the stage for a beautiful performance of her new album.
The Gorgeous bar hosts premium wines from selected regional wineries such as D’Arenberg, Yangarra, Wirra Wirra and so many more.
Regional restaurants compliment the wine using local produce. Arrys Verandah, FINO, Elbow Room, The Currant Shed, Ampikas Kitchen & Blessed Cheese will tantalise your taste-buds. There will also be cooking demonstrations by top chef’s in the region and more!
The Gorgeous ‘Art Prize’ was successfully launched in 2012. 10 participants created a piece of art within the festival gallery and festival-goers voted on a winner!
In 2012 Gorgeous also introduced a crèche facility, which was so well received by young families attending the festival. 2013 will see a super-colourful kids area and kids food stall.
