International and national music acts to headline Caloundra
The sound of music will take over Caloundra this September, and we're not talking about the 1960's musical. The Caloundra Music Festival is coming back over three days, running 29-30 September, for another family-friendly community event to celebrate the environment, cultural achievements and community pride.

Kings Beach Park and surrounds will be transformed as The Living End, the John Butler Trio, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, the Whitlams, Lanie Lane and The Voice runner-up and Sunshine Coast's own Darren Percival take to the stage as just a handful of the headlining acts scheduled for this year. See the full line up here.

This is the festival's sixth year and it's only gotten better with age. Those looking to stay for all three days should look into camping options at the nearby Caloundra State Primary School. Luxury tents and unpowered sites are available.

And for anyone who cannot wait until September 28, here's some good news - you can get a taste of what's to come early. From Friday, September 21, the beginning of the Spring school holidays, the all-new Fringe Festival will help kick things off. This new addition to the calendar is sure to be popular with the large holiday crowds. Activities will include puppetry, visual art and design, lunch time concerts, school performances and multi-cultural activities.

Those looking for some music that might be a little bit more home grown can look forward to the return of the popular Monaco Bulcock Busking Festival, running from September 23 to the end of the Music Festival. The winners will compete for $1500 in prize-money and the chance to perform on the closing night of the Music Festival.

It's been a busy 12 months for last year's winners Afterglow, who only set up just before last year's busking festival. This time, they will be on the main stage at the music festival.

The Caloundra Music Festival promises to transform the area with music, street parades, roving performers, beach-side carnivals and free children's entertainment.
