The Basin Music Festival - rock on!

An Association for musicians and lovers of music 

Since 2004, The Basin Music Festival Association Inc (TBMF) has helped to establish The Basin (and the foothills region) as a valuable destination for live-music, recreation, and culture.

A registered charity run by volunteers and supported by Knox City Council and sponsored by The Acorn Bar & Restaurant and Sachar Amos, TBMF showcases and promotes culture and live music through a series of fun events set in the foothills of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, about 35 kilometres east of Melbourne. As a not-for-profit organisation all funds earned or donated to TBMF are put directly back into the festival. (See Rules of Association below).

Serving the region in and around the City of Knox, these non-profit events promote community harmony, local musicians, community groups, volunteerism, communal facilities, diversity, accessibility and neighbourhood pride.

Local artists, community groups and young musicians who are starting out, enjoy a supportive, inclusive and professional environment - sharing the stage and networking with established musicians. Featuring a three-day live music festival each year, TBMF may also present a concert series over the summer months, events for young people, a song-writing competition and special features from time to time.


Generously supported by

  • Knox City Council
  • Bendigo Community Bank
  • The Acorn Bar & Restaurant
  • Sachar Amos

Our Aboriginal heritage

The Basin Music Festival Association acknowledges, respects and shares in the customs of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, traditional custodians of the land on which we hold The Basin Music Festival, and pay our respects to their elders past and present.
We extend that same respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, members of the oldest living culture in the world .
