Kylie loves the festival’s village location and really appreciates that, for a weekend, lovers of the festival form a special community – a little utopia. Kylie believes that this quaint little village holds a lot of value in such a busy world. For Kylie, her daughter summed up the meaning that the festival holds for her perfectly by saying that she would rather miss Christmas than Fairbridge Festival!
The first Fairbridge Festival in 2016 for Jessica Rogers and her family was a wonderful awakening, so much so, they’ve already booked again for 2017. “Everyone was so relaxed, happy and friendly. There isn’t a time you don’t hear laughter or see people smiling. With so many activities for all ages, my husband and I loved it and my children were never bored or clean, which is exactly how kids should be!”
James Lush has been a part of Fairbridge Festival since 2009 when ABC Radio Perth first brought the Saturday Breakfast show to the festival as an outside broadcast. James has attended with his children every year since. James’s favourite aspects of the Fairbridge Festival is the superb organisation, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, community and those artists that are unforgettable every year. His children love this about Fairbridge Festival just as much as he does!
Dance Program Director, Hilary McKenna, is looking forward to Fairbridge Festival’s 25th anniversary in 2017 as he celebrates his tenth anniversary with the festival, an achievement of which he is very proud. Hilary loves the festival: he loves being in the outdoor setting; the outstanding music and dancing; and the fact that the festival attracts people of all ages.
FolkWorld Inc. board member, Emma Bradstock, recalls one of her most memorable Fairbridge Festival moments.
