SCENE & HEARD is creating more than a festival. It’s creating a connection to a time. A time before people cared about ‘likes’, and festival moments weren’t instagram opportunities but collective memories.
SCENE & HEARD returns for its third year and boasts a multi genre onslaught of hit music anthems on a Summer’s Sunday afternoon!
Big hits, big sounds and even larger memories…. Scene & Heard ticks a few off the bucket list. When you need a break from the hit factories on stage, cruise by with immersive experience, a dabble of the weird and wonderful, Artisan produce made with passion and perseverance, that provide not only a unique taste but immerses you in a multi-sensory experience from food, festival beverage and sights.
The festival will be fully immersive spanning 2 stages:
• The first stage will be dedicated to the LIVE & rockin’ artform – Rock & Roll.
• The second stage will be showcasing the electronic pioneers and mainstays of our time.
This true live music festival, its size and scope will deliver the ultimate experience for those who crave THE SCENE.
