    Irish Folk twins perform on the Nest stage as part of Tumbafest weekend


    The Ocelots (IRL) are heading back to Australia in early 2020 to play shows and festivals all over the country, showcasing a set list of new songs to be released on their album due out March 27th 2020. Situated in Wexford Ireland, 22 year old twins Brandon and Ashley combine to create The Ocelots. They have crafted their songwriting and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich harmonies and bare, raw acoustic folk.  Their music perfectly embodies the breezy effortlessness of early Bob Dylan, and Simon & Garfunkel. 

    The Ocelots have performed all across Ireland, UK and mainland Europe and also toured with acts such as Jack Johnson, Glen Hansard, Hudson Taylor and Isaac Gracie.

    The Ocelots live set combines all that is great about folk music, so come and be charmed by the charismatic duo.


    Playing on the theatre stage, this will be an intimate but all inclusive event after a big day out at Tumbafest.   
    Tickets $15pp online Here

    King River Rising Returns 3 Jan

    King River Rising Returns 3 Jan

    Friday night, summer in Tumbarumba. Dinner and drinks as the sunsets and reggae as the stars come out.

    Earlybird tickets $15pp   - GET TICKETS -

    Dinner bookings from 5pm.

    When a band tours in Australia, it must be prepared to travel far and wide. King River Rising has followed the sun all over OZ - from Outback pubs, starlit bush festivals and gigs by the beach. King River Rising’s pumping rhythm section and wailing soloists seamlessly blend Reggae and Rock, leaving fans yearning for more.

    This a third trip to Tumbarumba after they wowed the special Sunday crowd a year ago on the lawns of Nest then played Tumbafest main stage 2019.

    The band has been compared to the Black Seeds, Fat Freddy’s Drop and Kingfisha. Members have spent the past three years honing their craft in Melbourne, Australia’s musical capital, punctuated by hectic visits and sell-out shows all over the country – from Queensland in the north to Tasmania in the south, including Byron Bay, the Sunshine Coast, Adelaide and the Blue Mountains.

    Mixed by legendary Australian producer, sound engineer and musician Ian Pritchett of Noisegate Studios, it presents a truly exciting picture of the group’s musical trajectory and showcases chemistry that has grown through the highs and lows of touring, writing and gigging.

    Pritchett has worked with the likes of The Beautiful Girls, Angus & Julia Stone, COG; and more recently Lyall Moloney, Boo Seeka and Bootleg Rascal.With a hunger to be pivotal players in Australia’s Reggae scene and hardened by two years on the road, King River Rising is a band to watch. Although the genre of Reggae isn’t as embraced by Australians as much as their neighbors, KRR are determined to bring it to the masses by pushing their own personal limits.

    Be part of the live music scene in Snowy Valleys and book this at special earlybird rate!
