Swell of a good time at Caloundra Music Festival with more artists announced

Aug 4, 2023

Meg Mac joins the line-up of stellar national headliners at this year’s Caloundra Music Festival, with Nicky Bomba’s tropical shaking six-piece Bustamento and funk and jam band Dumpstaphunk coming all the way from the USA.

Bustamento (pictured right), Dumpstaphunk (pictured left) and Arrested Development will set the festival vibes along with Friday night highlights The Middle Kids and Hiatus Kaiyote, before Sampa the Great on the Soul Stage, The Black Sorrows and Ross Wilson & The Peacniks making their music in the Surf Stage.

After a sensational set at Splendour in the Grass last weekend (July 22), Meg Mac completes Saturday’s energising line-up of L.A.B and Vera Blue on the Soul Stage.

The Sunday session will be huge with both US bands Arrested Development and Dumpstaphunk getting up on the Surf Stage.

Sunshine Coast Council Economy Portfolio Councillor Terry Landsberg said it was going to be a music lovers’ long weekend in paradise at Kings Beach, Caloundra from September 29 to October 1, 2023.

“With a long list of Sunshine Coast locals and emerging artists from all over the country, the unique talent that will be showcased offers a great opportunity to find new music for your ears, no matter your years,” Cr Landsberg said.

Festival fans can go all-in with a weekend pass or buy day tickets with the artists playing days live at www.caloundramusicfestival.com.

The Caloundra Music Festival is an event initiative of Sunshine Coast Council and supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland and features on the It’s Live! in Queensland Events Calendar.
