The artist announcements have begun for the next Caloundra Music Festival this year. Over ten days, starting on the 9th of June, the first announcement of artists will begin, aired on Mark and Caroline’s Daily show on 92.7 Mix FM at 7:40am – and so far it’s been an intense line up.
Presented by Sunshine Coast Council, the tenth annual Caloundra Music Festival will be held over the weekend of 30 September – 3 October 2016. The beautiful Kings Beach and surrounds will be treated to the sounds of a diverse line-up of entertainment featuring the best of the Australian music industry as well as famous international artists, with a vibe and attitude that fully represents the sustainable visions of the event and reflects the relaxed musical environment that they always set out to achieve.
‘The Caloundra Music Festival aims to bring a broad audience of locals and visitors together in celebration, to enjoy world-class music, food, arts and local culture, and to showcase the natural beauty, creative talents and unique character of the Sunshine Coast.’
Every year, the festival sets out with a vision to create an experience that incorporates the diverse culture of the Sunshine Coast region and a sustainable attitude in its operation for the benefit all of its patrons. The goal of the event is to: stimulate the local economy by bringing in music fans and talents from the world over; to showcase Caloundra and the surrounding Sunshine Coast as the vibrant and diverse tourist destination that it is; celebrate the region’s unique heritage character, culture, and local creative talents; encourage community participation and to build capacity, while also embracing our unique environment and to promote the Council’s vision of sustainability for the Sunshine Coast. This non-for-profit operation is not only family-friendly, but also community and environmentally friendly too.
The first big name to join the roster is the fantastic and quirky ‘The Cat Empire’. This Australian band has done wonderfully for itself, amassing an impressive fan-base from around the world with the passion and attitude that has sustained these incredible artists through the years to keep them creating their awesome work. There are many more names to come, and this year is sure to be even bigger and better than ever.
