Forbes is set to rock to the music of a different era when the Baby Boomers Music Festival returns to town on the last weekend of October at the Forbes Services Memorial Club.

Running over three days from Friday, October 25 to Sunday, October 27, the annual music festival takes you back in time with music from the 50's to the 70's.

This is the third year that the music festival has returned to Forbes on the last weekend of October and some of the audience's favourite acts have returned.

It all kicks off on Friday night with a 70's disco and a performance by FABBA - an ABBA tribute band.

Saturday will be the biggest day of music with two major shows planned, which will feature some the biggest hits from the 70's along with the return of the king of rock and roll.

The first show on the Saturday will include the 70's Thang show, All Greased Up, and a performance by well-known local band Amitie in Sister Acts of the 50's and 60's.

Saturday night will have everyone rocking to Boomtown Rockers show which will feature music from Elvis.

Sunday will finish off the music festival with the Royal Far West fundraiser show and the International Legends Show.

The fundraiser show will include music from Amitie, Stephen R. Cheney and Lemvis, who will be performing songs of Johnny Cash and the Rat Pack.
