Frost and Fire has all the elements of a country bonfire night, and there is something for everyone – young and old.

Frost and Fire is all about celebrating the Winter Solstice – and what better way than under starry skies in Forbes, Central NSW.

It’s just like an old-fashioned country bonfire night, but with extra flare – if you haven’t been privileged to experience one, you’ve been missing out!

As temps reach frosty lows, warm up and chill out lakeside with us next to toasty fire buckets, and indulge in some hearty food and boutique brews, while enjoying the sounds of Australian renowned musicians, local talent, memorable live entertainment and Wiradjuri cultural performances. 

And of course, the night would not be complete without including some grand fire action – the main event will leave guests feeling warm and toasty, and maybe even a little nostalgic.



This year’s live music is a mix of local and regional support acts with Belinda Day from Grenfell kicking off the evening, Forbes locals Cler, Em & Jo back by popular demand, and indie-pop’s brightest newcomer Birdee 王, originally from Parkes, now making waves internationally.

And our incredible headline act, Aussie pop sensation Sneaky Sound System will be taking the stage at the end of the night with all your favourite songs!

There will also be plenty of fiery action featuring Sydney Fire Dancers along with the iconic lighting of our grand effigy. 

There will be FREE shuttle buses running every 20 minutes from 3:45pm throughout the evening to and from the event, departing Town Hall, Harold Street and Renfree Street. Onsite event parking is limited and ticketed at $10 per vehicle. 

Be sure to get your tickets, including parking or bus tickets, so you don’t miss out! Tickets are $15 for over 18s and under 18s are free entry but must register.  


So grab your tickets at 123tix.com.au, bring your winter woollies and some friends, bring your camp chairs or a picnic rug and head to the Forbes Ski Dam this June
