Wangaratta Festival Goes Online

The Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues for 2020 has been confirmed as an ONLINE festival this year – their 30th festival – commencing Monday October 26 and concluding Sunday November 1, 2020.

Co-Artistic Director Eugene Ball chats with David Moyle about the impact of restrictions associated with controlling the COVID-19 pandemic in Victoria resulting in the Artistic team, (Eugene, Zoe Hauptman, Scott Solimo), creating at least six different plans for the festival over the past twelve months.  He also reflects on the challenges for a musician when performing to an online audience.
