The heart of the Sunshine Coast will beat loudly this August as the Maroochy Music & Visual Arts Festival (MMVAF) comes to life for the third year running. On Saturday August 26 the natural amphitheater of the New Maroochydore CBD will see the likes of Alison Wonderland, The Presets, Bernard Fanning, Gang of Youths and more grace the stage.
And when we say the stage, there is but one, which means you won’t miss a single act while at the festival. A line-up rich with home talent, you can also catch Horrorshow, Anna of the North, Northeast Party House, Skeggs, Mallrat, Billy Davis & The Good Lords and OKBadlands.
Gang of Youths will be on stage stirring the audience in to a frenzy for the second time at the festival, having played the inaugural event in 2015. Australian music legends The Presets and Bernard Fanning are not to be missed as they bring their remarkable catalogues of award winning music to Maroochy for the first time. And to top it off Alison Wonderland will close MMVAF with her chart topping bangers, a fitting end to the extravaganza of music and art.
Did we forget to mention the art? Street art from international and local artists will feature alongside light installations and giant inflatables. Held on the greens of a former golf course, the tree-lined festival site provides an impressive canvas for installations from Lucas Salton, Design Lab & Tiamco, Beastman and Frank & Mimi, just to name a few.
Add this one to your must do festival list. Two hour road trip from the GC and you can enjoy a day lounging on the many couches littered around the festival site, soaking up the Sunshine Coast while your aural and visual senses are assaulted by world-class talent.
