Emerging from the long running Moruya Jazz Festival, Granite Town began in 2014 as an ambitious 3 day event showcasing some of Australia’s finest live music, a range of local talent, and commencing with the spectacular ‘Riverlights’ floating lantern parade on the Moruya River. Organised by the volunteer Granite Town Committee, the festival is a community run event with a focus on bringing world class music to our usually quiet country town, Moruya, on the beautiful South Coast of NSW.
In 2017, with the Riverlights lantern parade no longer running, the festival moved to a new venue, the Moruya Racecourse, and a one day format. The racecourse proved an excellent venue for a music festival, surrounded by forest, not far from the beach, with large covered areas, a spacious grassy sloped festival ground so everyone has a good view of the stage. We will be returning to the Racecourse for the 2018 festival on Saturday 6th October.
Granite Town is fun for young and old, we aim to deliver a family friendly festival, with a carefully selected lineup of the cream of Australia’s musicians. Expect funky brass sections, sweet soul music, a dash of reggae, fat beats, local talents, original compositions, and good time party pleasing sounds.

Eight-piece powerhouse The Bamboos have continually redefined Australian Soul music and continue their reputation as harbingers of musical evolution.
Caiti writes songs about what she knows and feels, sings with her soul and unashamedly performs the hell out of them. But that will all be obvious when you hear her music and watch her perform, which will have you either dancing or chilling with a grin on your face.
A musical assault that crosses over genres, deeply funky and seriously Phat. Their culturally diverse and influential style digs deeper and deeper in the pocket of groove and rock!
Thunder Fox is an eclectic explosion of psychedelic funk-rock goodness that provides a barrage of shredding guitar solos, titillating vocalisation, tight horn lines and stank bass ‘n drum groove.
Signature Series are a shaken martini of Hip Hop, Blues, Classic Soul, Harlem Shuffles & Brooklyn Scuffles. Taking cues from Classic Hip Hop and combining with the Classic Soul of the 60’s Funk of the 70’s and the attitude of the Sinatra Rat Pac, Signature Series deliver a fun, musical and above all cool show.
Local acts including Kumera Patch, Third Ear, Ron ‘Callo’ Callaghan and The St Peters Anglican College Blues Band, roving performers, the inaugural Granite Town Record Fair, and all the fabulous food trucks, fine beverages, kids activities and good times that Granite Town regulars have come to expect.
Moruya is on the beautiful NSW South Coast, South of Batemans Bay, North of Narooma.
