AboutVDMfest - About VDMfest - Event Date - 2nd & 3rd October 2021, Biloela QLD Well 2020 was a write off for a lot of Australia's great Country Music Festivals and ours didn't escape the wrath either. But here we are EXCITED as hell to bring you VDMfest 2021.
Biloela – or Bilo as it is invariably abbreviated to – is an hour and a bit south west of Rockhampton in the heart of the rich and beautiful Callide Valley – long famous for agriculture and beef cattle and now also a mining centre of considerable size. The population sits at almost 6,000 people and lies at the crossroads of the Callide, Leichardt and Burnett highways so, as with Rome it is no lie to say all roads really DO lead to Bilo!
“We are committed to making this an annual event for the Biloela region and hope to grow bigger and better each year by becoming the Festival hub for not only Bilo but the whole Central Queensland Region.
Why go to the interminable effort, time, stress and financial risk to put on a Music Festival? “Easy! We LOVE Country music, and we love to entertain and meet likeminded people who also love music. It really is as simple as that.
We want to create a fantastic and fun event that people can walk away from with excitement and smiles on their faces and be saying they cannot wait until the next year’s VDMfest.
What does the name VDM stand for? Long story short, the original concept was for a Valentine’s Day Music Festival, thus VDMfest, but due to inevitable delays that didn’t eventuate, the branding was too far along to change logos etc so it stayed.
SO, we hope people come along and have a FANTASTIC time. we can only achieve success in this with the support from you, the festival lover. We hope you enjoy our annual VDMfest and most of all, we HOPE to see you all there for our 5th Year!
VDMfest 2021… “Good Times Start Here”
