Caloundra Music Festival 2020 Dates – Tickets, Lineup & Program
During the Caloundra Music Festival itself, visitors will be treated to a huge line up featuring a program of broad appeal including top Australian acts, exciting emerging artists and quality international singers and musicians.
The main stage is in a natural amphitheatre allowing watchers to either stand at the front or relax with a blanket or camping chairs up on the grassy hill area. The natural slope of the main amphitheatre means that even if you choose to sit towards the back, your view will not be obstructed.
You can camp throughout the duration of the festival at the Caloundra State School who offers camping on their flat and shady school grounds which are only a short walk from the festival grounds. With hot water showers, toilets, communal areas with tables and chairs, security and perimeter lighting, this is an affordable option for festival-goers.
Kids are also welcome at the festival as there is plenty for them to do. Bring them down to Funky Forest which has activities including; face painting, yoga classes, nature mandalas, jumping castles, African drumming, circus workshops, art & craft activities, henna, soccer, food stalls and the best thing is, most activities are FREE!
You should note that there is no public parking available at Kings Beach Park. Catching public transport or walking from your accommodation is recommended if possible, or you can take advantage of the free shuttle bus service. Cycling to the festival is also another great alternative as there will be plenty of bike racks available.
