At first glance someone might not have thought there was a music festival in Rupanyup on Sunday.
Tacky marquees, enormous lines trailing from food vans and over-priced beers were not to be found.
But in the town's church, hall, backyards and billabong, musicians from the slick and experienced to those simply having a crack at something they enjoyed, entertained the crowd.
The second Dirt Music Festival was an event encouraging musicians to perform - for no price - to music lovers across and beyond the Wimmera.
The sounds of strings, keys, skins and songs replaced the noise of lawn mowers and birds that would have had the stage on any other Sunday.
While the event kept clear of labelling headliners, keyboard prodigy Chooka Parker was a big drawcard after becoming famous on Australia's Got Talent in 2011.
The 18-year-old from Maryborough stunned the audience with his complex compositions and fleeting key changes while sweating away in his now famous Driza-Bone coat.
Dirt Music Festival a hit with music lovers.
