Put Friday 29 and Saturday 30 July in your diaries for SUNSHINE SOUNDS FESTIVAL 2022, taking place in the hinterland village of Eumundi, the creative heartland of the Sunshine Coast.
An all-ages family friendly music festival, Sunshine Sounds 2022 boasts a line-up featuring Katie and Tyrone Noonan of george (performing the 20th anniversary of their award-winning No. 1 double platinum album ‘Polyserena’ with a stellar new band including Katie’s son Dexter), ARIA winning Clare Bowditch and band, Asha Jefferies, Hat Fitz and Cara, Deline Briscoe, JaZZella, Layla Barnett, Zara, Lyndon Davis and the Gubbi Gubbi Dancers, Andrea Kirwin and the Yama-Nui Social Club, Band of Frequencies and much more!
The boutique festival is being presented by Kin Music, a production company run by superwoman songstress Katie Noonan, who calls Eumundi home and is passionate about all things community.
“Sunshine Sounds is a truly special little festival that really brings people together,“ says Katie. “There’s a real sense of community-connection, welcoming music lovers, and indeed performers, of all ages and stages.”
Katie says a key element of the 2022 festival is the inclusion of Eumundi School of Rock in the program. “Eumundi School of Rock is a super special free education and mentorship program for young musos from 8 to 17 years.”
“The Friday program sees four Eumundi School of Rock bands play live on the big stage, performing alongside none other than rock god himself Tim Rogers, frontman for You Am I”, she says.
Gates open 4.30pm on Friday (with Welcome to Country and music from 5pm – 10pm). On Saturday, gates open at 11am (with Welcome to Country and music from 11.30am – 10pm).
There will be plenty of awesome local food and drinks available on-site. Sunshine Sounds is a glass free and plastic free event, so please BYO bottle for complimentary water refills.
“Winter is such a spectacular time of year to enjoy the Sunshine Coast, and for its second year, the Sunshine Sounds Festival will showcase amazing talent and our hinterland assets to visitors and locals, including many new Sunshine Coast residents,” Cr O’Pray said.
“I also want to acknowledge the flow-on effect that cultural events bring to our region.”
