Since its beginnings, the Folk Rhythm and Life Festival has grown to support a wider pool of local, national and international interests that involve initiatives within community, environment and the arts.FRL, whilst not a charity, is a non-profit event. Its main motivation has been, and always will be, to generate funds to support good people doing good things.The festival is situated on the Skermer family property Bilyana at Eldorado, which is nestled within the Chiltern - Mt Pilot National Park. Set within the beautiful natural amphitheatre of the surrounding ranges, the festival is wrapped around an omega shaped bend in the Reedy Creek. The mixture of the natural acoustics and the expansive and character filled environment make for a very special and powerful atmosphere. Camping extends beyond the property into the National Park, and as well as the festival program there is plenty to enjoy in the surrounding bush.The large heart of the festival is kept pumping by the generous contribution of blood, sweat and passion of so many who turn up during the preceding weeks, over the event and or linger after, to offer what special energy, talent or pure muscle they have to share.
