Alice Springs Beanie Festival: A Head Full of Tunes
Presented by Alice Springs Beanie Festival and Araluen Arts Centre
In its 23rd year, the Alice Springs Beanie Festival drops the needles with A Head Full of Tunes.
From Mozart to magpies, musos to mandolins, mantras to MP3s, (melody) makers from across Central Australian desert communities, across the country and across the globe will transpose and transform the sounds in their heads, the music in their hearts, and the Araluen Arts Centre, into a polyphonic symphony of knit, felt and crochet. This year’s event opens with music outside your head, featuring live performances, food, parade and the grand announcement of the winning competition beanies for 2019, while across the opening weekend the Beanie Central stage broadcasts thousands of beanies to try and buy, along with opportunities to participate in fabulous workshops and activities.
