Land of Plenty Festival

Shepparton’s huge all ages Land of Plenty music festival has been postponed to April 9 2022.

Land of Plenty festival has become the latest victim to the ongoing COVID outbreak with festival organisers postponing the highly anticipated event until April 2022.

Following a successful debut year back in 2019 and its unfortunate postponement in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic, the all-ages music festival was originally slated to go ahead in October this year, but will now take to Shepparton Showgrounds on Saturday, April 9 2022, giving music lovers something to look forward to in the new year.

Alongside the date change, the festival has also added hip hop legend Drapht and punk rock heroes Bodyjar to the lineup, replacing previously announced acts Thundamental and Thornhill.
