A new arts and music festival will find its home at the natural amphitheatre venue of Alma’s Hem at Inman Valley.

Field Good Festival, on October 27 and 28, is the result of a collaboration between three young SA entrepreneurs – Gerry Bain (of Swirl Records), Ben Hewett (of Yeo Haus) and Sam Lavers (of Zen Panda) – and the organisers of the annual Alma’s Hem Music Exhibition.

The organisers said the festival “seeks to fill the void in lack of contemporary music events in regional SA”. 

On the music lineup are Zen Panda, Hartway, Druid Fluids, Planet Self, Barbara Ganush, The Oh Balters, Lucy Zola, Bromham, Slippery Sloth, and J. Hennesey.

Sam said inspiration came from events like Blenheim Fest, Meredith Music Festival, and Hills are Alive.

“With the focus of the event being local live music, the stage will act as the central artery of the festival, with food trucks, liquor licensing bar and local arts and craft stalls surrounding the boundary of the festival.

“Camping is also a focus of Field Good Festival with a flat ground campsite available for patrons to truly settle into their surroundings.

“We hope to offer the wider music community with a long running music and arts event where good times are had, great careers are started and a safe inclusive environment is provided.”
