Owner of the Kameruka Estate, Barry Moffitt, has decided to host an Autumn festival on the grounds, with a range of his favourite bands invited to play out of the property's sheep shearing shed.
The first Kameruka Festival event was held in December 2021, with the first iteration in summer. The Autumn festival on the other hand promises a more moody vibe with the ground full of wilting deciduous trees to admire.
Marketing and event coordinator Becky Lupton said about 400 tickets were sold for the summer event, but ticket sales for the autumn event had been relatively slow in comparison.
"I was concerned it was because people haven't been sure about the rain and they just don't want to plan ahead too much because it may be rained out," she said.
"But after the amazing Easter we've had people might be feeling a bit more optimistic about weather right now and festival will be going ahead no matter the weather as the bands will be playing indoors."
The line-up for the festival includes rock and roll band The Hoops, country music singer Pete Denahy, young local rock and roll outfit The Chordroys, and country-folk musicians The Poddy Doggers.
"The idea is that they all play twice, so no matter what time you come there will be something on. So if you come when it starts and stay until the end you'll get to see every band play twice," Ms Lupton said.
The shearing shed will be split into two stages, with a third stage on a semi-trailer, so bands will not have to bump in, and the music will play back-to-back.
There will be food trucks and a barbeque put on by the Candelo Public School P&C, with proceeds going directly towards the organisation.
"They were thinking if they don't actually need a huge amount of money, and it's probably a couple thousand dollars, they might send it up to a sister school in Lismore.
"They're used to floods and so are we but we've never had one as bad as theirs," she said.
Left over proceeds from the Summer festival went to the Kameruka Cricket Club, after the bands were paid.
The event will be held on Saturday, April 30 from 2pm. Patrons can bring their own picnic and chairs, but there will be hay bales to sit on and food trucks available, with full bar facilities provided by the cricket club.
Patrons also have the option of camping at the Estate for an additional $10, with toilets available on the grounds.
The organisers hope the festival will be a regular seasonal event, but it will depend on how many people buy tickets.
"I think it's just nice to have something on the calendar," said Ms Lupton.
