Top Music Festivals in Australia Dec 2019 - Feb 2020
Australians love their music and when it comes to outdoor festivals then there is certainly a great deal of choice. Obviously around Christmas time the weather suits outdoor activities much better and that is why so many festivals are held in December, January, and February.
Many international bands travel to Australia to perform as well as well known local artists. And the music genres can be anything from EDM to Folk, with everything in between.
