Wirrina Bluegrass amplification policy

Amplification is used to balance the instruments and make the music accessible to a large group of people to enjoy. All stages use high-quality PA systems.

The Wirrina Bluegrass Festival is about showcasing Bluegrass and its acoustic cousins. It has come about through a partnership between the Yankalilla Acoustic Music group and SA’s Bluegrass musicians.

The SA Bluegrass music community has very high-quality musicians some with over 40 years of experience and a passion that they want to share through our festival. Most of these musicians play acoustic instruments.

Code of practice

  • Amplification is used to balance volume levels of instruments playing together.
  • Electronic effects are seen as music distortion, not music enhancement.
  • If your instrument requires amplification to balance its volume to the acoustic guitar in festival sessions, a small battery powered amp is appropriate.
