During the festival known as Arrow Sounds, music rolls around different Arrowtown bars and restaurants for 12 hours on Saturday 20 June from 12 noon, featuring local musos. Patrons can sample a range of top musos by travelling from venue to venue or simply stop and enjoy a favourite performer in one of the charming venues.
Organiser Jeannie Crawford from the Fork and Tap has teamed up with the town’s various licensed venues to support local musos and to give local and visitors a reason to celebrate coming out of lockdown. Jeannie says, “we are excited and can’t wait for the fun to start”. Businesses are working hard to create an amazing event with patrons assured of a “feel good buzz”.
Music starts at noon to 3pm with a line-up of buskers and The Paint People on Buckingham Street. Postmasters hosts local poets for an hour from 12 noon, Bandemic from 1pm to 3pm and Trip Trio Jazz from 3pm to 5pm.
From 3pm to 6pm The Trainsurfers and Good Days perform at Bendix Stables while at the Fork and Tap from 6pm to 9pm Thomas Brown and The Boys with Special Guests jam in to the evening.
The final evening slot from 9pm to 12am gives a choice of several venues to enjoy Tom Maxwell and the Killergrams at Slow Cuts, The Crown Rangers at the New Orleans and Sam Maxwell and the Cellar Doors at The Blue Door.
A midnight shuttle for only $10 gives festival goers an easy option home to Queenstown, Lake Hayes Estate, Shotover Country and Arthurs Point. Phone 0800 393 754 Pure Tours to book.
