Now in its 10th year, Between the Bays is firmly established as Mornington Peninsula's best, annual music festival on the summer calendar - a day not to be missed! Over the last decade, Between the Bays has offered music lovers a festival option that is safe and entertaining for everyone, is inexpensive and has an all-inclusive community feel. This year we welcome back BTB favourites James Reyne, Mark Seymour and Custard, along with some amazing new acts.
All proceeds raised by Between the Bays goes to Penbank School's partnership with the Wugularr School in the Northern Territory. For more information on Penbank School and the Wugubank Partnership visit www.penbank.vic.edu.au
Between the Bays is for families. We want your kids to be happy and engaged from start to finish. This year all kids' activities, rides and workshops are included in the child/student ticket price - no need for wristbands. We have an incredible and varied range of stuff for the kids to ride on, jump on, watch, create, explore and join in. At Between the Bays kids have heaps of fun and learn at the same time!
Between the Bays offers a huge range of culinary delights to help fuel you for this exciting day. From a simple sausage sizzle and ice-cream treats, to delights such as Wood fired Pizzas, Calamari, Vegetarian options and wonderful coffee. There are plenty of kid-friendly options as well! And don't forget - you can pack your own picnic to bring along (no glass).
Our bar offers a great range of products to enjoy throughout the event. Drinks will be available from the time the gates open.
Bring your water bottle to refill throughout the day at our FREE WATER STATION.
Between the Bays promotes responsible service of alcohol and reminds festival goers to be conscious of the .05 blood alcohol limit when leaving the festival. Our event is strictly NO BYO ALCOHOL.

If you require first aid please see the wonderful staff at St John's Ambulance or notify any of the security staff.
As an outdoor event we have dedicated an area for families to bring small shade tents that can be erected towards the rear of the oval so they do not obstruct others' viewing. This area will be managed by security.
