Heading for Fairbridge Festival next week

Next weekend we are heading to a music festival in an tiny historic 'village' near Pinjarra in Western Australia. Fairbridge was once home for dozens of orphan children, mostly from Britain, and has various buildings available for use by the festival. A number of marquees are erected too and it is a very popular event. We will probably take the bus/motor-home as it hasn't sold yet and it is more convenient than taking the caravan. We'll also put a big 'for sale' sign on it and hope someone shows some interest in it. The festival lasts for four days this year and most come for the duration. There will be caravans/campers of all sorts, motor-homes galore, and tents of every shape and dimension. Some will 'glamp' in luxury hired tents. Fairbridge is an international festival with acts from all over the world. The photo shows a group from a previous year. I was intrigued with the unusual instruments that many had. Do you get the chance to attend music festivals?

@LadyDuck We read of a group that is coming that we'd love to see but then we read the price and we lose interest. This festival is quite expensive in a way but you have non-stop music from about 9am till midnight for four full days. And there are at least 4 or 5 venues with groups in each all the time. So you can get your money's worth if you can stand the pace.
