Check out the crowd at Vanfest in Forbes 2019

Thousands from far and wide gathered at the Forbes showground for two big nights of Vanfest.

People embraced the cold and wet weather to check out the line-up which boasted both acts who have been touring internationally and up-and-coming Australian artists.

In 2018 the festival was cancelled following a series of recommendations presented to the Forbes Shire Council out of an auditors report that was prepared after the 2017 wash-out event.

The cancellation also caused issues with refunds, but people who bought two-day tickets for VANFEST received 75 per cent of their money back after the second day of the music festival was washed out.
