Crush Festival

October every year

Visit Bundaberg in October. Beautiful weather and beaches. Cafes are brewing and restaurants preparing local produce. The last of the cane is burning and the sugar refined and distilled into rum. It is nearly turtle season. Best of all, it is time for the Crush Festival.

Crush is a month-long celebration of regional arts that puts the Bundaberg region’s arts sector on show. State, national and international artists participate in a program of workshops, film, exhibitions, theatre, markets, performances, family and children’s activities and new major projects every year.

In 2014 the Festival takes on a new brand and new format. From the Labour Day long weekend for 10 days we introduce the Curated Program - new and innovative projects and events that highlight creativity and what can be generated in a regional community. The rest of October showcases the Fringe Program of locally generated arts and cultural events and activities.

More than 25,000 people participate in Crush each year. Join in the fun and creativity.

The program is available online from late August each year at
