Party & Bullshit
October 3, 2022

It felt like half of Newcastle was at the Bloc Fest yesterday.

With over 70 artists, spread over seven venues, West Best Bloc Fest by Bandaid Festivals was undoubtedly the best dollar-for-dollar music event that our little town has seen in a long time. Stumbling around between stages at The Family, Jam’s Karaoke, The Star and more, punters were lucky enough to catch some of the best local produce Newy has to offer, with psych-electro maverick Atlas Franklin Alexander, folky crooner James Thomson, and grunge revivalists Spoonhead among the highlights. Check out all the action in the gallery above:
