The event kicks of with Melissa Western and Tnee Dyer at the Brolga Theatre in Maryborough on Friday the 26th June. Melissa Western is known for her chilled out mix of lounge, jazz, blues and swing and will no doubt open festivities in style.

The following two weeks will be jam-packed with a heavy emphasis on showcasing local talent alongside cultural experiences the likes of which have never been seen on the Fraser Coast, many including exciting interactive elements.

A highlight for many will be the regions talented buskers competing for $3000 in prize money. The winners will be crowned by John Rees from Men at Work and Bill McDonough from Australian Crawl.

For the more fabulous among us there is a wearable art competition now taking entries with prizes awarded to the overall most spectacular, the best outfit, the most unusual and best recycled materials outfit.

Musical highlights include Glenn Shorrock & Brian Cadd of Axiom at the Brolga theatre, July 1, and the Perch Creek Family Jug Band at Gatakers Music Hub on July 5.

Those fond of the theatre will be able to witness the world premier of "What the River Told Me by award winning writer and performer Ian Brown, described as a love letter to Maryborough.

Other events include a Suitcase Artisan Market, art exhibitions and workshops as well as impromptu street performance.
