Wanderer Festival will return to Bega Valley this September to enliven festival-goers with headline music and dazzling performance art thanks to the NSW Liberal and Nationals Government.

The NSW Government is backing Wanderer Festival to be even bigger and better in 2023, supporting the three-day, family-friendly event, which will again present headline musicians, comedy, theatre and circus performers at Pambula Beach on NSW’s stunning Sapphire Coast.  

Minister for Tourism and the Arts Ben Franklin said the return of Wanderer Festival bolstered the NSW regional events calendar and would provide a significant boost to the NSW economy.

“After an incredible first event in 2022, we are delighted to support Wanderer Festival again and have it back on the NSW major regional events calendar,” Mr Franklin said.

“It proved an enormous hit with festival-goers and local businesses last year and in 2023 it will again draw thousands of people to one of Australia’s most pristine locations, injecting $2 million into the local economy over the three days.

“That’s a $2 million boost to local hotels, restaurants, cafes and tourism operators, supporting hundreds of jobs in the region.

“We are committed to delivering world-class events like Wanderer Festival in regional NSW which drives tourists to the Sapphire Coast, supporting local accommodation providers, restaurants, pubs and retail stores.”

Wanderer Festival Producer Simon Daly said the event would showcase one of NSW’s most idyllic locations along with an impressive line-up of local and international artists.

“We are so excited to be partnering with the NSW Government and Destination NSW again to bring Wanderer Festival back to Pambula Beach on the Sapphire Coast. It is such an inspiring festival location and provides a unique opportunity to combine a world-class cultural experience with breathtaking natural beauty. We can’t wait to share this year’s line-up soon,” Mr Daly said.

Wanderer Festival at Pambula Beach will run from 29 September – 1 October 2023. For festival updates visit www.wanderer.com.au.
