We are very pleased and excited to officially welcome you to the third End of the Line Festival! After an overwhelming response to the 2013 festival that saw an estimated 10,000 people descend on our little Hills town, we took a breather in 2014 to focus on ways we could strengthen and refine the festival to make it as sustainable as possible moving forward. This led to the decision to move to a biennial format, allowing us extra time to apply for grants, explore sponsorship opportunities and run a successful fundraising event ‘Intermission’ in November 2014. Since its inception in 2012, End of the Line has never been about money. This event is entirely volunteer produced by members of the Belgrave Community Arts Partnership, with support from Burrinja Cultural Centre, Yarra Ranges Council and the Belgrave Traders Association. The beast continues to run on the passion and generousity of the community, our sponsors, our volunteers, the traders of Belgrave and every participating artist and performer. This rich collaboration allows us to uphold the core festival ethos of freely sharing and celebrating the arts.

We have learnt the power of what artists and the community can achieve when we all work together. By strengthening connections with each other, we have seen the long-term benefits that participating artists and our town can reap from this festival. We are so thankful that the community has embraced End of the Line, showing their support so generously and enthusiastically. With a larger team on board behind the scenes, and an OVERWHELMING amount of talented artists stepping forward to participate, the 2015 End of the Line Festival promises to be bigger and bolder than ever! This year, we are honoured to play host to over 80 music performances, 30 exhibitions, a bustling artisan market place and a healthy dose of workshops, live art demonstrations and street performances. The quality and diversity of musicians, artists, performers and makers involved in this year’s event is simply mind blowing. We are sincerely grateful to each and every artist that is donating their time and talent; so if you spot an artist around the festival, please take a moment to thank them. So whoever you are and wherever you’re from, welcome to Belgrave. Be Brave! Be Bold! Dive in headfirst! Once the art monster swallows you whole and you may never want to leave… words by CJ Dakis & Kathleen Snowball

Remembering alex legg

Words by Kathleen Snowball

I’ll never forget the first time that I heard Alex Legg play. His husky voice and full sound was captivating, and halfway through a conversation with a friend, I stopped mid-sentence as he demanded me to listen. In the middle of the song, he looked over at me and gave me a very cheeky wink (probably because my mouth was hanging open), and it became obvious to me that this man was extremely special. After the gig, like a true gentleman, he came over and formally introduced himself. We clicked instantly, and we talked for what felt like hours about music and song writing, politics, our shared love of the Hills, and then he invited me to sing for him. As it was getting late, the bar was practically empty, and as I started to sing an old jazz standard, without missing a beat, he picked up a guitar and began to play along. At the completion of the song, anyone who was left in the bar had stopped talking to listen, and in the pregnant pause before the applause, we grinned at each other and we both realised we had made a new friend. I was honestly heartbroken when I heard the news that Alex had passed. I mourned privately and deeply. It was only days before his passing that he had played at Intermission, the 2014 fundraiser at Sooki Lounge to raise money to keep the End of the Line festival alive. This is a testament to his generosity, his belief in me, his belief in the festival and his belief in the Hills music community.

22

At the 2013 EOTL festival, Alex Legg was the headlining act at Oscar’s Alehouse, and was one of the EOTL Headquarters favorite performers. In fine tradition, this year Oscar’s will be hosting the best singer-songwriters that we can offer. In order to honour his service as a performer and volunteer at End Of The Line, we have named the stage the “Oscar’s Alehouse Leggacy Stage”. I encourage you to take a walk up to Oscar’s, and take a moment to remember Alex and admire his Leggacy. **If you wish to purchase Alex Legg’s music, you can find his CD for sale at Oscar’s Alehouse and at the EOTL Official Merchandise Stand.
