Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat presents Ballara Sounds, a seasonal series of contemporary live music evenings in commencing 2019.


Commencing in April with the Autumn Edition and returning in July for Winter, October for Spring and December for Summer (avoiding the height of the Summer heat and the intensity of Festival February and Mad March!), the idea is to take the live music experience back to its truest form - intimate, personal, connected, communal - featuring world-class artists and songwriters who both seek out and benefit from this type of environment. An equal footing and nourishing relationship between artist, venue and audience.


Strictly limited to a 50-person capacity per show, the back porch of Ballara will be transformed into a cosy, relaxed, candlelit ‘listening room’ (we respectfully ask the audience to refrain from talking during the performance, although socialising before, during intermission and after the show is strongly encouraged!) conducive to the baring of souls and the sharing of stories... and secrets.


Full bar available. Strictly no BYO. This event is not suitable for children.
