With lockdowns well behind us, Melbourne is scoring brand new music festivals left, right and centre. And the latest addition to that event calendar is Hello Sunshine — a new one-day celebration of tunes and food hitting the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges this summer.

Descending on Scoresby's Caribbean Gardens (the OG home of Moomba) on Saturday, February 11, this one's got a broad-ranging lineup of acts to tempt all ages. Hitting the stage, you'll catch the likes of indie pop darling Amy Shark fresh from her latest Aussie tour, jazz-funk legends The Cat Empire and hip hop artist 360.

Amy Shark

An unexpected musical gift comes in the form of a set by kids-entertainer-turned-DJ Murray Cook — aka the original Red Wiggle — while acts like Pierce Brothers, Yo! Mafia and Cadence round out the day's musical fun.

On top of that, there'll be carnival rides, market stalls and a stack of food trucks, including favourites like Smashville, El Chivi and St Gerry's.

Adult tickets start from $69, with reserved lawn seating priced at $149 and VIP tickets at $159. Grab GA tickets online from 10am Thursday, August 25.
