Ahead of all the big announcements for Beer InCider 5, we grabbed 10 mins with one of the team behind Beer InCider, Founder Marty Keetels.

What are you most excited about for this year’s event?

We’re adding more unique beers that are being brewed specifically for the Festival. This includes some pretty spectacular collaborations. So many of the breweries joining the Festival have undertaken to brew something just for our audience which is awesome.

Any hints re the music line up?

I think something like 7 songs of 2018’s Triple J Hottest 100 are represented in our festival line up. Our first announce is pretty darn exciting but look out for our second announce for a couple of Australia’s best young acts too.

Hear you’re bringing back Ping Pong?

Yeah I used to be a gun player at school so we’re bringing it back. Mainly just so I can beat my brother John and friend Matthew who are both inferior to me at all sport. We’re upping the ante - I’ve got to get onto Gumtree and start buying up tables. If anyone reading this could lend us one, please get in touch. Can I say that?

Sure. What are you doing with visual and performing artists this year?

We’re actually going to put out an Open Call to our region’s artists and performers who would like to surprise and delight our audience. Look for this in July. The team behind the event all love random expressions of art so I’m really keen to see what people come up with.

Anything else?

Are you going to take my coffee order?

This isn’t a cafe.

That’s disappointing.
