Roots music legend Jeff Lang will set the Australia’s counter culture capital alight when this year’s Nimbin Roots Festival bursts into life on from September 14-16.

The annual celebration of peace, love and roots music is delighted to welcome Lang onto the stage for the first time, along with dozens of other incredible musicians from across the country.

“Jeff is such an extraordinary singer-songwriter and a seminal figure in the world of roots and blues music, we are thrilled to have him on board,” Festival Director Lou Bradley said.

“A unique town deserves a unique talent, and that’s what they’re going to get.”

In just three short years Nimbin Roots has emerged as one of the few affordable, sustainable festivals that is truly “for the people and by the people”.

Making use of Nimbin’s beautiful halls and outdoor stages, it welcomes musicians from all corners and gives them all equal billing.

A colourful array of talent will join Jeff Lang in the line up including explosive Northern Rivers quartet Wild Marmalade, award-winning country/roots artist Paul Greene, consummate songstress Hussy Hicks, and American banjo virtuoso Cameron DeWhitt.

The Festival will incorporate solar powered venues and stages this year and for the first time bus services running to and from Lismore, Byron Bay and the gateway to Mullumbimby.

There will also be a colourful array of stalls and great camping options fo those keen to have the full “Nimbin experience”.
