Saturday 1st November 2014


Marburg's GrottoFest is a well kept little secret - an amazing little festival held so close to Brisbane and Ipswich, offering one huge day full of local and interstate music. If you love blues and roots music, you will not find better value for a family day out.



“Great family friendly affordable day out. Great atmosphere and music. The crowd was at a comfortable level, and so was the volume of the music. BYO a hit, and the curry hut rocked. This will be my festival of choice from now on.” Kate Williamson


“Thanks for a wonderful day! All the family had such a good time, we've been to a festival before that said it was kid friendly.... and SO wasn't! Yesterday was a safe, fun way the whole family could enjoy live music. And what great music it was. Can't wait for next years’. We'll be bringing all our friends." Ange Gownes


Stay tuned in early August for our first artist announcements. We are very excited about the line-up, as we are every year.


We have some festival favourites returning to the stage, mixed in with a whole bunch of newbies, including some very popular acts straight out of the Bluesfest Busking Competition, thanks to our good mates at ACE. Robbie Burns, our fabulous Band Coordinator, has done a fantastic job rounding up some brilliant acts to bring to the stage in Marburg!


With over 60 applicants, it was a very hard job locking down the line-up, and we would like to extend a huge thank you to both Robbie and all the artists who expressed interest in playing at GrottoFest 2014.
