“Part Bluesfest, part Tamworth with hints of Aunty Meredith and Port Fairy's 'folkie', Queenscliff Music Festival covers most bases… Some came to hear established chart-toppers but most dipped their toes into unfamiliar waters too. QMF has a knack of introducing the "next big thing" as it's about to break.” (The Age, 2014)
