Traditionally, on the first night of the concert after the campers are all settled, we open up the main stage to amateur performers. This is not a karaoke session, but your chance to perform a number or three in front of a supportive audience.
We welcome you to perform, if you want to, and suggest you get in touch with organiser Tim Gow ahead of time to ensure you’ll have everything you need available and to put you onto the timetable. Or, if you’re really nervous, just come prepared and MC Craig Smith may open the floor to anyone interested, if there is time.
There's no pressure if on the night you decide not to perform. Our headline acts will put on mini-performances if there's a gap in the proceedings.
Last year we had a mixed bag, with some performers who are good enough to be professional, and others who were singing or playing just for the joy of it, or as a dare. In addition, some of our feature artists gave impromptu mini-performances. You can read all about one of our previous Open Mic Nights here.
Remember gate tickets are limited and close to new entries at 5:45 pm, so please buy your tickets online.
Meet Qin. He may be still in school, but Qin is a fabulously talented musician who was playing Stevie Wonder when we met him. Qin and his father Phil will be playing two spots.
We tried to get this duo back to Revitalize without much success due to their heavy schedule, but now we are absolutely delighted to announce they will be performing at Open Mic night.
We've had a lot of interest from our main artists wishing to also do a warm-up on Open Mic Night.
Plus a late addition
Every musician is super excited and very keen to perform at this mellow and unpretentious festival. Revitalize just keeps getting better and better. It's like a mass party of musicians down on the farm, and YOU are invited to join them. ... Yeehah!
