It's just been named one of the best places in the world to visit in 2022, and it's about to give you another reason to stop by. That'd be southeast Queensland's Scenic Rim region, which will play host to the state's newest music event early next year: The Long Sunset.

On Saturday, February 12, the music and camping festival will sprawl across Elysian Fields in Canungra — and it'll make the most of its almost 500-acre location. Listening to live tunes may be the main drawcard, as well as bunking down for the night afterwards, but this fest will also fill its sprawling venue with other highlights. Think: cocktail bars, pop-up art galleries celebrating local artists and artisans, and a range of homegrown food highlights.

The full event rundown hasn't been revealed as yet, but one key thing has been announced: The Long Sunset's headliners. Angus and Julia Stone will do their first Queensland gig together since 2018, with Brisbane's own Ball Park Music also taking to the stage. Fellow locals Hatchie and Byron Bay's Babe Rainbow are on the bill as well, and more acts are set to be announced.

The fest will be an all-ages affair — organisers have used the word "wholesome" to describe it — and it's also aiming to entice visitors to check out the rest of the Scenic Rim while they're there.

And yes, as the name suggests, you can expect quite the dazzling display as day turns to night — with sunset at Elysian Fields seeing beams of light flicker over from the region's surrounding mountain ranges.

If you're keen, ticket pre-sales will be available from 8am on Monday, November 8, before general sales start at 9am on Tuesday, November 9.
