From the team who for the last four years have delivered the widely celebrated regional festival A Hitch to the Sticks comes the brand-new roving concert experience, As the Cocky Flies, a regional blues & roots travelling circus and a dazzling fusion of live music and performance art, set beneath a big top circus tent.

Held over consecutive weekends in March and covering terrain in regional Victoria’s Mount Beauty and Moyhu, As the Cocky Flies features a colossal cast of talent for avid gig-goers of all ages keen to immerse themselves with entertainment in a reimagined playing field.

The bustling lineup, headed by unparalleled Ringmaster extraordinaire Barry Morgan, features the likes of ARIA-nominated soul-rhythm explosion Emma Donovan & The PutBacks, the iconic performer responsible for anthems ‘Black Fella White’ and ‘My Island Home’ and one of the nation’s greatest songwriters Neil Murray (Warumpi Band), sovereign of Victoria’s blues & roots scene and regional arts patriot Dallas Frasca, and much more. Elsewhere, exhilarating circus troupes will astonish with nail-biting feats of power and prowess.

An artistic eruption celebrating the long-awaited return of live music and entertainment to regional audiences yearning for sorely missed live entertainment, As the Cocky Flies is committed to providing a new event experience that emboldens cultural fanatics to venture back into the live entertainment space in a way they’d have never foreseen.
