AIRWAVES Festival blasted off from Nambour Showgrounds on Friday night with the Sunshine Coast’s first-ever Drive In music festival. The creatives behind Buskers By The Lake brought the galaxy-themed history-making festival to life and punters flocked from far and wide to drive in, park up and finally get their live music fix while dancing beneath the stars.
With contactless ticketing, golf buggy food delivery, socially distanced space around your vehicle and hand sanitiser stations all around, AIRWAVES festival had all the COVID bases covered to ensure the return to live music was going to be a night to remember.
Friday night’s bill featured acoustic folk-roots duo The Dreggs, Sahara Beck and indie-rock five-piece Toxic Fox. Saturday night kicked off with Brisbane-Gold Coast punk rockers Being Jane Lane, followed by indie-pop band Bugs and finished with the Sunnie Coast’s beer-loving punk rockers The Chats.
