Let's Wing It Festival organisers have condensed the three-day festival in Scone, NSW, into two jam-packed days and nights across June 10-11, 2023.

The festival is headlined by artists including Brooke McClymont and Adam Eckersley, Fanny Lumsden, Catherine Britt, Andrew Swift, Matt Cornell and The Bushwackers

Raechel Whitchurch, Melody Moko, Gretta Ziller, Rory Phillips, Felicity Dowd, The Sunny Cowgirls, Piper Butcher, Matt Scullion, Bill ChambersDuncan Toombs and more will also perform. 
Organisers Dusty Edwards and Phill Doring of Dream Makers Event Services have taken a slightly different approach to putting the show on.
“We are supporting three major charities in the Black Dog Institute, the Cancer Council and the Make a Wish Foundation and we want to help these people as much as we can,” Edwards said. 

“The event was born out of a desire to honour our friend Trent Erskine, a local musician and photographer who sadly took his life in May last year after a lifetime of serious mental illness. We want to use this great festival to shine a spotlight on men's mental health through the Black Dog Institute, among a range of other issues such as cancer awareness and the Make a Wish Foundation.”

The organisers have also initiated the Trent Erskine trust which is designed to help up-and-coming artist with expenses in furthering their own careers.

“Phill and I agree that there has to be a holistic approach to this festival; it’s not simply a money-making venture,” Edwards added. “My business partner Phil Doring and I are family men and we're trying to do something special to honour our friend and help some people out.”

Doring said his passion was country music.
“What a better place than a rodeo arena to showcase some our country’s finest and emerging country music artists,” he said. 

“We strive to bring smiles to people's faces by putting this event on and also honour our family and friends that have passed on, that is why we have chosen the three charities we are supporting. We strongly feel two days brings together a more wholesome jam-packed weekend of entertainment for the fans.”
The current situation with festivals across the country is that people are taking their time to buy tickets, we just saw the Falls Festival cancel and other festivals downsize to allow the events to happen.
“We are no strangers to that thinking and we had to downsize our three-day festival into a two-day event to make it viable,” Edwards said.

Organisers, as well as Upper Hunter Shire Council, Upper Hunter Tourism and Hunter Valley Events are all working together to make this event something to remember.
