This Summer's Massive New Music Festival

Happy Valley will be getting a whole lot happier this summer with a brand new music festival. Karoondinha Music and Arts Festival will take place July 21-23 at Penn's Cave & Wildlife Park, and it's not just any run-of-the-mill concert. 

This massive three-day festival will feature John Legend, Alessia Cara, X Ambassadors, Daya, Maren Morris, the Roots, and about 80 other artists with more still to be announced.

In true music festival fashion, Karoondinha will be a multi-stage, day and night camping event. 

If you're wondering how this incredible new event came to be, the answer is that it was conceived by brother and sister Paul and Kaleena Rallis, who grew up here working at their family business—you guessed it—Penn's Cave. After working in the entertainment industry for several years, the duo was inspired to bring their love for the arts back to Happy Valley in a big way, and Karoondinha was born.

Tickets are on sale now at, with General Admission 3-day passes priced at $249, and VIP 3-day passes at $599. Visit to learn more about the packages' different features and the festival itself. They even have a super handy FAQ page for any and all lingering questions you might have.

More Karoondinha announcements will be made in the weeks and months ahead, so stay tuned!
