Yuval Ashkar, Alwan and Led Zeppelin Concert

The event will be fronted by singer Jimmy Cupples (Runner up in The Voice, 2012) who has an uncanny resemblance to Plant’s vocal style.

Guitars and mandolins will be played by highly regarded James Ryan (Ross Wilson, Russell Morris, Kate Ceberano, The Badloves and recent Pink Floyd-Dark Side of the Moon).
Kit Riley on Bass (The Badloves).
Haydn Meggitt on Drums and Percussion (Ross Wilson, Bachelor Girl).

All members are from Melbourne’s blues rock band King Canyon.

The show will be enhanced by Middle Eastern Trio ‘Alwan’ and a String Quartet.

Enjoy three days of dance and music in the beautiful heritage town of Creswick.

A huge range of performers, from international stars to local newcomers, will entertain you over the weekend of Friday 5 April – Sunday 7 April.

More than concerts, you’ll have the chance to participate through a dense packed program of workshops including singing, dancing and playing. Learn new skills and take part in the mayhem when KlezFest comes to CresFest and the streets are filled with klezmer dancing.

Budding performers can enter our IGA Busking Competition for great prizes or sign up for open mic spots.

It all happens on the streets of Creswick, the weekend after Easter in 2024, and during the school holidays.

Kids 12 and under are free and we cater for them across the weekend with our (new) KidsOwn KidZone in 2024.
