Festival producer Katie Noonan was thrilled with the sense of community and talent that took to the stage for the second running of the event.

“There were so many musical highlights but there were huge goosebumps watching our young Eumundi School of Rock musicians seize the opportunity to jam with Tim Rogers,” she said.

“Tim brought his musical best and also his mentoring best, full of terrific rock n’ roll and life advice for our next generation of musos.”

“The kids absolutely shone on stage, and I think everyone fortunate enough to be there was blown away by their talent and excitement.

“It’s a special little boutique community festival and a festival with real heart.”

The all-ages festival showcased a line-up that also featured Katie and Tyrone Noonan of george, Clare Bowditch, 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 more

Festival-goers also embraced craft activities hosted by Mt Ninderry Art House while Sunshine Coast Council’s Wellness Team hosted zumba and yoga classes and Nova star Productions brought their exceptionally long-legged performers.
