Sandford 2024

Festival 2024 is done. WOW!! That was the hardest, hottest, most fun we’ve ever had! A big thank you to everyone in the organising committee, all the amazing volunteers who worked and sweated tirelessly all year and especially the weeks leading up to, during and after the festival, the incredibly talented musicians giving their all in the most extreme circumstances and finally everyone who attended to live the Sandford experience and remained patient while we worked through the problems brought about by the extreme heat.

Photo Gallery

If you saw some crazy dude dancing around like a mad thing taking endless photos, that was me. The result is the 2024 Photo Gallery. If you’d like to add to the gallery, email your photos to

Merch Store

I’ve reopened our online shop to give you a second chance at festival merchandise including some CDs by selected artists. All proceeds for artist CDs go back to the artists.

Other Festivals

There’s a bunch of other festivals happening around the country this year. Here’s a couple we know about.

Where Are We?

Sandford Village is 5km South of Casterton in South Western Victoria, about five hours drive from Melbourne and six hours drive from Adelaide. See here for more information and Google Map.

How Can I Support The Festival?

You can support the festival in a variety of ways:

Buy Tickets Online: The first release of Early-Bird tickets is scheduled for 1st September. Tickets are expected to sell out well before the festival. Once sold out there will be no further ticket releases and no gate sales. Don’t wait for festival day, get in early to avoid disappointment, save money on the gate price and help us to pay our up-front costs!

Become A Sponsor: There are many local and national organisations and individuals taking advantage of our great sponsorship program. You choose your level of sponsorship and enjoy the exposure your business will receive in the lead-up and on the days of the festival.

Become An Advertiser: You can be a local business, a festival vendor or pretty much anything else near or far. You can advertise your business in our printed program. The program will be seen by thousands of people during the festival and after.

Become A Volunteer: We are always looking for volunteers to do the hard yards organising the event and its myriad peripheral tasks, preparing the grounds and working at the festival on the day. And the big bonus is, that may be all it takes to get you a free festival pass! Remember: Volunteers are our Festival Family and share a special camaraderie with other volunteers, performers and festival goers.
