Inca Roads music festival was launched last year when two Melbourne lads, Daniel and Andre, were planning a camping trip on a farm near Ballarat, Victoria. After getting the plans underway for their trip they thought: “why not invite a few more people along, and maybe a band to play some music?” That’s when the magic blossomed.
After a few months of planning, this small camping trip became a fully-fledged music festival with people, bands and booze galore.
This year’s event is set to put the festival on the radar showcasing a slew of amazing Australian acts, catering for fans of electro, indie, funk, soul, garage, punk and even hardcore.
