After a 12-month pause, the iconic Winton’s Way Out West Fest will return bigger than ever in April 2021, bringing more than 100 Australian artists and musicians together for six incredible days and nights of entertainment across seven venues in one of the world’s most unique outback locations.

The lineup boasts multi-award-winning singer songwriter, Sara Storer, country songstress, Anne Kirkpatrick, living legend Chad Morgan and national treasure, Joy McKean whose feature film, Slim & I, will screen in the rustic Royal Open-Air Cinema.
