Our very own home-grown tattooed tenor and his gorgeous partner Michelle Rainbow are our special guests on the Amphitheatre stage.

After studying musical theatre and working professionally in Melbourne, Matthew found national and international profile teaming up with Ricky Martin on The Voice Season 3 and was one of only nine contestants invited back as an All Star for The Voice Season 8. Being signed to Universal Music, Matthew now travels Australia performing as well as working in TV and Radio.

In 2016 Matthew won Best Leading Male in a Musical for his portrayal of Buddy Holly in Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story.

Being heavily tattooed has opened more doors than it has closed with Matthew walking red carpets alongside the likes of Katy Perry, One Direction, INXS and working with everyone from Miss Universe’s Jennifer Hawkins to The Wiggles.

The 2021 Sustainable Living Festival is excited to welcome the incredible talents of InterWEave Arts REMADE artists to this year's festival.  Artists will be roving throughout the festival modelling their incredible works designed and made using a brief that is inclusive to all skill levels, encourages upcycling and provides engagement, community strength, capacity building and connectedness.  This platform challenges artists, designer and community to create themed 'wearable art' before enthusiastic audiences.  We are sure that our audience will be not only enthusiastic, but will embrace their message of sustainability.


Terrapin creates worlds of creative adventure, often using repurposed or salvaged materials in beautiful ways. The company's in-theatre productions transport children and families to incredible places with narratives of adventure, humour and beauty, while interactive installations use simple technologies in dazzling ways to make audiences of all ages essential creators in transforming public space. We'll be welcoming a special performance from Terrapin to the Sustainable Living Festival.


This is Jeremy’s big moment. He finally has an idea that will make him rich. I.B.I.S (International Bin Integration Services) will train birds commonly known as Tip Ducks to keep our world clean and tidy. Enter Ibsen, the world’s first rubbish-collecting Ibis. But on launch day everything goes wrong, with hilarious (and messy) consequences. Photo: Amy Brown
