Spontaneous, liberating and imbued with a strong social conscience, HONK! is a collision of musicians, friends, families, outrageous costumes and irresistible music.
January 10th, 11th and 12th marks our 5th annual HONK! Oz Street Music Festival.
HONK! Oz is a not for profit association in Wollongong, NSW. The Festival takes its name and inspiration from Somerville’s (Boston, USA) annual HONK! Festival of Activist Street Bands and Seattle’s HONK! Fest West. The first ever HONK! Oz Festival of Street Music happened in January 2015 when twenty bands converged on Wollongong to play music in the streets.
HONK Oz is completely free and accessible. Performances happen in public spaces and there are no ticket prices. The festival is run by volunteers and relies on generous community support to transport, accommodate and feed the visiting musicians..
We need money to make this festival happen. This is where you can help!
We require financial support from the community to assist with travel, food, accommodation and transport costs within the festival for the visiting musicians.
The Festival does not offer artist fees – musicians attend HONK! Oz at their own expense. Many travelling great distances to participate.
We are seeking funds to assist visiting musicians with travel, food, transport and accommodation.
Hospitality is key to the success of HONK! Oz. We are grateful for even the smallest contribution. Every dollar helps!!!! Your contribution to this project is tax deductible.
