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. On Saturday August 26 the natural amphitheater of the New Maroochydore CBD will see the likes of Alison Wonderland, The Presets, Bernard Fanning and Gang of Youths 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. Street art from international and local artists will also 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. Tickets are on sale now. Visit mmvaf.com for more details.
