Gascoyne Junction will become a vibrant hub of arts, culture and music this weekend for the Gascoyne River Music Festival.

Running from Saturday to Monday, the free festival is set in the heart of the Gascoyne and features a jam-packed program for the whole family.

The main stage will be brought to life with a line-up of talented musicians, featuring didgeridoo virtuoso Mark Atkins, husband-and-wife roots duo Dave Mann and Bec Schofield, and Adelaide-based musician James Abberley.

The Red Ochre Band, Perth Symphony Orchestra and a smorgasbord of local musicians will also perform at the festival.

For those wanting to pick up some new skills, a series of arts, crafts and circus workshops will be run over the weekend.

Punters can learn how to juggle and have a go at tightrope walking with the help of international circus performers.

International aerial artists and the Kelido Circus Company will perform visually stunning stunts on the main stage.

Other events and activities during the three-day festival include twilight yoga, a Saturday night film festival, fire sculptures and walking tours of the Gascoyne River Sculpture Trail.

The Gascoyne River Music Festival is run by the Shire of Upper Gascoyne and Gascoyne in May.
