There's never a bad time to head to the Sunny Coast; however if you're after more than just a trip to the beach, then August 26 is looking extra enticing. That's when the Maroochy Music & Vis Arts Festival takes over the New Maroochydore City Centre (aka the Old Horton Park Golf Course) for 2017 with a lineup that can only be described as epic.
Headlining the sonic side of the bill is Alison Wonderland and The Presets, with the likes of Bernard Fanning, Gang of Youths, Horrorshow, Anna of the North, Northeast Party House and Skegss also adding plenty of tunes to the day-long party. With Mallrat, Billy Davis & The Good Lords and OKBadlands among those strutting their stuff too, your melody-seeking ears and toe-tapping feet will be happy — and so will your art-loving eyes.
On that side of the equation, expect Wintercroft, Jake Reston, Lucas Salton, Beastman, Design Lab & Tiamco, and Frank & Mimi to break out everything from inflatable and illuminated installations to street art in displays of creativity of the visual arts kind. And if all that doesn't inspire you to head north for some fun, knowing that there'll be a chilled crowd should. Yep, like Meredith down south, Maroochy Music & Vis Arts Festival has a strict 'No Dickheads' policy.
