Hell yeah, it’s time! Tickets for IDYLL 2023: SHINE are on sale now.
Saturday 18 March 2023, 2-8pm
Castlemaine’s annual talent contest is back! Local singers. Live band. Famous judges. A family inclusive event. Food. Bar. Plus fun & talent for miles…
A competition like no other, spectators can expect brilliant singing and performances by local legends, and legends in the making. Each contestant will have a professional band to back them, and, as always, a crowd full of enthusiastic supporters in the audience.
Held at lot19 Art Space – a not-for-profit creative space and events venue committed to supporting local talent and the Mount Alexander Community – Castlemaine Idyll is an uplifting, collaborative community event which brings joy and connection to a wide cross section of our community.
No BYO, no pets, no idiots.
Please note, this year we are continuing the “sliding scale” of ticket prices. Castlemaine Idyll is not only a ridiculously fun event, but it is also a major fundraiser for the community art and performance space that is lot19. If you are in a position to pay a higher ticket price, we appreciate that gesture immensely as it not only supports lot19, but helps ensure that Castlemaine Idyll returns again each year.
Lot19 was founded to celebrate life. Artists’ retreat, development space and presentation venue. A unique regional arts destination. A social-change project that is humbled by its on-going significant partnerships and courageous audiences. Lot19 continues to consolidate its place as a leading centre for artistic excellence. The three acre property consists of 21 artists’ studios, two outdoor stages, a contemporary art gallery, an outdoor sculpture park, Castlemaine Press (open access print-makers facility and exhibition space), Castlemaine Clay (open access ceramics facility), a literary venue and bar in the newly settled W-Class Tram, 1035 and a yet to be launched salon style Theatre.
