Berry will host its second Fairgrounds festival aimed at music lovers of all ages with festivities kicking off Friday evening at 5pm.

The family friendly event will see entertainers like Ali Barter, Rodriguez and King Gizzard & The Lizzard Wizzard start the party.

While gourmet food and a raft of activities like on-site swimming pool, children’s book readings, record fair, markets plus egg and spoon races will keep all entertained over the two-day event.

Saturday will see multi-ARIA award winner Sarah Blasko, who picked up another one last week for Best Adult Alternative Album, do a final showcase of her latest album Eternal Return before slipping back into the recording studio.

“So it’s really special, a nice way to go out,” Blasko said.

She’s already spent two weeks as artist in residence at Campbelltown Art Gallery working on some new sounds, finding the experience fruitful and inspiring.

The “We Won’t Run” singer will share the stage with Jagwar Ma, the Japandroids, Big Scary and others.
