The much-loved Restrung Festival returns in 2021 bringing audiences a banquet of boundary-pushing, strings-driven music and art.
The three-day program features a dazzling program of celebrated and emerging talent, packed with bespoke events, unique collaborations and bold new works.
In addition to genre-bending performances, audiences can immerse themselves in installations created by Pat Hoffie, Leah Barclay and more. Expect joyous explorations, spontaneous art making, and a musical smorgasbord of the new, the raw and the beautiful.
