In 2019 we will celebrate the 10th annual Melbourne Ukulele Festival, with a renewed focus on participation. As in past years, the festival will consist of a weekend of concerts and events held in the High Street Northcote and Thornbury precincts. The program will include; major acts including international performers, along with community group performers, and opportunities for emerging artists; and workshops, children's sessions and other activities.
The benefits of music are well-understood and the ukulele is an affordable, portable and easy-to-learn instrument with a welcoming community of players. Ukulele groups typically have a strong community focus and are an important community activity for many people. Research supports the benefits of playing the ukulele. The festival seeks to bring these benefits to the community with opportunities for performance, learning and engagement.
