No excuse for Singleton, Aberdeen and Scone residents to miss Bottoms Up Festival

IF listening to music, sampling craft beer, local wine, cider and delicious street food sounds like a good afternoon out, then jump on the bus and head to Simpson Park, Muswellbrook, on Saturday, October 21.

The Bottoms Up Festival kicks off at 1.30pm and – with a little forward planning – you can save on your entry ticket and travel safely to and from the event.

Buses will run from Singleton, Aberdeen and Scone during the festival and, to ensure a seat, buy your ticket online when you buy your entry ticket.  

Seats are limited, so don’t miss out.

Festival headliners Thundamentals will be joined in the line-up by Nicole Millar, Winston Surfshirt, Polish Club, Australia and Raave Tapes for an afternoon and evening of brilliant music.

Bring rugs and folding chairs and invest in a “tasting pack” to slurp and sip your way around the festival.

Tasting packs include five tasting tokens and either a stubby cooler and souvenir beer glass or a wine glass holder and a souvenir wine glass.

Kids’ Corner will run from 1.30pm to 4.30pm and have face painting, balloon twisting and craft activities.

Buses will pick up festival-goers from Singleton Royal Hotel (noon, 2.50pm, 5.50pm), Scone Railway Station (1.20pm, 4.20pm) and Aberdeen Valley Fair (1.35pm, 4.35pm).
