Characters of Ironfest

Ironfest is the festival where anything goes, held each year at the Lithgow Showground in April, it is an arts festival that explores the relationship between humans, metal and identity.

It brings together artists, designer-makers, blacksmiths, musicians, steam-punkers, machine enthusiasts, historical re-enactors, hobbyists and performers from all over Australia to display their talent.

Shown here are just some of those characters who go to great lengths, and take on an alternative persona for the rest of us to enjoy.
