The Blenheim Music and Camping Festival 2017 took full form last week with music fans flocking from all over the world to hear the smooth folk vibes the annual Clare Valley festival had to offer.

Situated just outside of Leasingham, a crowd of thousands partied and chilled out in teepees, mingled on lounge chairs and danced in stage tents listening to incredible local and international artists.

The two-night event held morning and dawn yoga sessions and other alternative performances such as fringe performance art and live painting.

An array of incredible food and drink stalls were also on offer such as Cambodian and Sri Lankan street food, Barossa Valley ice cream and freshly made teas.

Clare Valley Wine, Food and Tourism Centre promotional coordinator Tegan Adamson-Smith said the festival pulled in a great crowd of families and social groups.

She said a large number of people attending the festival also enquired about other local events they could visit while they stayed for the long weekend.
