    An Australian romantic comedy movie, now showing, set in a fictional folk festival [based on the Fairbridge Festival] in Western Australia.
    Some nice shots of kombis. Ben Elton is the writer /director. The movie reviews have been mixed and honestly I think that the movie has been very harshly treated by some critics. I enjoyed the film and as a long term folk music fan, I especially appreciated the [mainly] gentle digs at folk festival life.
    So go along and see the movie, as an unofficial review I give it four and a bit out of five stars.
    All the best Bob Lynch

    Hi Bob,
    I've only seen the shorts for the movie......looks like a cracker to me.
    Anything with Michael Caton, Magda Z & kombis in it has to be a winner !
    ( .....it's the nature of a line......)
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Expect some of the critics didn't "live" in the era the move is set in and thus no appreciation of what did happen or the story being told of how things used to be :(.

    Glad you enjoyed it :D

    having seen the movie and been to the festival
    i would say the film makers have done a fantastic job capturing the vibe of yhe place .
    the vw club of WA has a group camp as part of the festival called Volksville if you ever get a chance be sure to camp with them

    here are some photos of when we were there in 2014
