Take a drive to this awesome festival this Easter
It's not often that Bundaberg gets a music festival with bands of some standing in the Australian music charts. So when it does, be excited, be very excited!
Billed as a boutique food, beverage and sound experience like no other, the Autumn Sounds Festival stands to become the musical highlight on the Bundaberg calendar.
Boasting headline acts such as The Cat Empire and Bluejuice, the festival looks set to be a cracker of a day out. Add the Jungle Giants, the Cheap Fakes, Carl Wockner, the John Steel Singers, Storm Chasers and Bucket Seats and you've got a stellar line up.
The first act starts off at 12pm midday and with two stages. There is something for everyone. Most of the lineup is on the first stage, with a couple of acts and DJ's on the second stage.
The Autumn Sounds Festival is a good reason for Bundaberg to come alive. So if you're a local looking for a good day out be sure not to miss out on this inaugural event. If you're from Brisvegas or the Sunshine Coast or surrounds, this festival is a good reason to pack your Kombie or campervan and road trip your way up to Bundaberg for the long weekend.
A map of the festival area, as well as the full lineup and times, are available here.
This is an 18 plus event and tickets are set at $60 plus $3 booking fee. Compared with some of the regular Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast festival prices, $60 is a bargain basement price. You couldn't even go to a concert for that price.
So get your road tripping gear together and take a leisurely drive to Bundy for Easter.
