AT THE

BROKEN BAY SPORT & RECREATION CENTRE
(via ferry from Patonga)

Patonga Blues Across the Bay, Australia’s only – ferry Access – Blues Festival, is now in it’s 16th Year!

(The Australia only ferry access was the contention of a prank call with Hamish and Andy – Check it out, there is a link in the side bar to listen to it.)

Patonga Blues starts with this renowned ferry ride to the shores of Broken Bay Sport And Recreation Centre. Once there, you can drop off your BYO picnic and chairs to the helpful Centre Staff, who will take your gear, while you enjoy a lovely 3 minute flat leisurely walk around to the festival site. If you need a some assistance staff are more than willing to help and even offer a lift if necessary.

After a Welcome to Country, 3 bands will entertain you, while you eat and drink your own food, and perhaps even indulge in a bit of dancing, for an awesome and relaxed afternoon.

This year will see the Prodigal son Hat Fitz return. However unlike past years he will be bringing his Irish Songstress and flute, tin whistle, washboard and drum playing wife, Cara Robinson.  Hat Fitz and Cara, all the way from Queensland,

While themselves are young, Melbourne based band, Blue Eyes Cry, will bring their own funky style of classic blues and soul.

Local boys and Casey Chambers touring band Grizzlee Train entertain and rock you.

Most patrons are return customers, and there’s a few reasons for that.

  • PBATB’s has stayed true to their principles of presenting only genuine Blues music at its best.
  • The BYO concept ensures there’s no other hidden costs – other than perhaps a festival t-shirt (LOL).
  • The limited ticketing allows for an intimate and relaxed atmosphere.

This is a not-for-profit community event, and runs entirely on volunteers who do not get paid. Your ticket price includes the ferry trip, the bands, and venue hire. Any money raised goes back into the community. In the past we have funded ….

Furnishings (seats and tables) in the Patonga Pavillion (erected by Gosford City Council); installed bench seatings around the village and donated generously to worthwhile people and causes; Money has also been committed to improvements on the Patonga Progress hall including roof shelter on the Hall’s large deck.

Remember, this is a small festival and tickets are strictly limited, so get cracking.
