Fans can enjoy a relaxed drink on the tram, while leisurely rolling through the streets of the city as some of the Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival’s finest talent performs, up close and personal. After taking a couple of short pit stops at the Tram Depot and the Joss House, the tram then turns back towards the mine.

The Troubled Waters mix their unique brew of dark Australiana and roaring swamp blues perfectly. After recording their debut EP - 'Goin' Swimmin' at The Aviary in late 2017 and embarking on a a string of local and regional shows, the momentum and force this Melbourne duos' train is growing stronger and proving to be unstoppable.”
