Back for it’s highly anticipated second year, Strings Attached: The West Australian Guitar Festival is bringing together Players, Makers and Enthusiasts of the stringed-persuasion for a weekend of guitar-fuelled entertainment in Margaret River, WA.

Featuring many of Australia’s most prominent guitarists and luthiers, the 2021 Festival is turning covid’s lemons into lemonade with a strong leaning toward celebrating the incredible artists and artisans we have in our own backyard, offering:

  • Live Performances
  • Exhibitions and demo’s from guitar makers, retailers, gear manufacturers & distributors
  • Workshops, masterclasses and panel Q&A’s with artists and luthiers

Lovers of live music can expect everything from Blues to Roots, World to Jazz, Metal & Rock, Country, Classical and more, featuring players from around the country showcasing the magic of strings, be it electric or acoustic, bass or mandolin, banjo or ukulele and beyond.

The inaugural 2019 event attracted close to 8,000 attendees across 27 stages and venues in and around Margaret River. The festival received a swathe of positive reviews and feedback from attendees; notably Yorgos Bechlivanoglou, Director of “All That Guitar” festival, Greece, internationally renowned performer & lecturer and maker of Moov Travel Guitars, who said it was “an amazing, open minded, perfectly organised, highest level guitar festival, already from its first edition!”

Strings Attached: The West Australian Guitar Festival showcased over 60 artists and featured 40+ workshops, masterclasses, Q&A’s and presentations across the weekend in a massive first year program, and is delighted to be back in 2021.
