This exciting concept combines two of Bendigo’s best attractions - its historic trams and sublime music talent. Fans can enjoy a relaxed drink on the tram, while leisurely rolling through the streets of the city as some of the Bendigo Blues and 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 trams have been a big hit with music lovers so far, and Festival director Colin Thompson suggests the trams are not to be missed: 'The Blues Tram offers a truly unique experience, which you simply will not find anywhere else. Everyone who rides the Blues Tram leaves with a smile on their face.'
All sessions will take approximately two and a half hours and there will be alcohol and snacks (chips, nuts and more) served by our crew, in co-operation with valued partners Bendigo Tramways and Bendigo Beer.
