Good Times Festival announces new two-day festival dates Friday 30 and Saturday 31 July.

Nestled alongside the banks of the glorious Murray River, the picturesque township of Tocumwal, NSW, is set to come alive thanks to Good Times Festival! This Winter Solstice, welcome a new event for the whole family that celebrates live music, art, food, workshops and local delights of this stunning village.

Friday night lights up thanks to a takeover of the historic Terminus Hotel, with performances from neo soul collective IZY, cigar box guitar, resonator, lap steel and six-string guitar singer songwriter Anna Scionti and swamp, Voodoo blues trio, Southbound Snake Charmers.

On Saturday the closure of Deniliquin St will transform Tocumwal’s main drag. Discover a prohibition era Speakeasy Bar hidden in a heritage listed building, have your palm read by a fortune teller in the Antiques Store, challenge yourself to a game of “relatively serious” pub backgammon, or simply enjoy the stellar live music program.

The Tocumwal Memorial Hall will feature multiple ticketed shows, including Blues royalty Josh Teskey and Ash Grunwald bring their new album Push the Blues Away, with award-winning Yorta Yorta singer/songwriter Benny Walker and his soul-driven guitar songs. Melbourne legends Cash Savage and The Last Drinks bring their raw, brooding powerhouse version of alt-country and Melbourne’s Sagamore delivering their blue eyed soul and afro funk laden grooves. Acclaimed soul sensation Emma Donovan will take the stage with Melbourne rhythm combo The Putbacks, as well as Coburg's cinematic soul journeymen Surprise Chef, and hypnotic vocalist and instrumentalist Noongar artist BUMPY.

Pop-up shows will blossom all over Deniliquin St, featuring artists like Danika Smith, Pete Denahy, Matt Katsis, George Kamikawa, Heidi Moncrieff, Shane & Ellie and Mohamed Camara.
