The Location

One of the biggest highlights of the music festival is its jaw-dropping views! Held on Airlie Beach, the festival showcases stunning sea views as revellers dance to the music from the main tent at the centre of the Whitsunday Sailing Club. It doesn’t just remain here however, with the festival stretching out to the entire town, streets and shops coming alive to the sound of music. Live entertainment pops up in at least 15 different venues, including bars, restaurants, beaches, and the marina. This lets guests discover not just the festival’s music, but the charm of the town along with it!

Big stars including John Butler, Smokie, and John Williamson playing all their classic hits. There’s also exciting new up and comers such as Tia Gostelow, the youngest winner of the Queensland Music Awards ‘Album of the Year Award’.
