To watch the Woodford 04/05 DVD is to understand the new wave of Australian contemporary music and its audience... Missy Higgins, The Cat Empire, John Butler and Xavier Rudd are just some of the featured artists who perform breathtaking live sets to crowds young and old in this independently produced music film.

The Woodford Folk Festival, a phenomenon in itself, attracted more than 120,000 people over the 0405 Christmas and New Year period - and for the first time in its (almost) 20 year history the essence of this extraordinary event has been captured on DVD in a series of beautifully shot vignettes, with more than 130 minutes of exclusive live footage.

Viewers will gain an insight into how the Woodford festival has become part of the performing arts fabric in Australia… how it inspires its young attendees to pursue their passions and to maybe come back one day as a performer… how electrifying the simplicity of live performers at the peak of their abilities can be and the energy that transfers between them and their audience.

They will also witness a style of film-making that allows live performance to breathe, stories to be told and for people to be themselves.

A must for anyone interested in contemporary music, film and the performing arts in Australia - as well as inspiration for young performers, no matter how diverse their craft may be.
