Final free music acts before Music Festival cranks up
  • Tuesday 25 September 2012

There’s one last big free Caloundra Fringe music concert before the Caloundra Music Festival takes over the Surf Stage on Friday.

And it’s a beauty.

Bathurst’s Swing Factor Youth Band (also playing the Music Festival) and the All Star Big Band will give a free concert at 11am at the stage, bringing the great sounds of the Big Band era as well as renditions of more modern pieces to what is expected to be a big Caloundra audience.

But it doesn’t stop there, as The John Butler Trio’s drummer Nicky Bomba will also be providing music workshops on Tuesday 25 September.

The Caloundra Music Festival proper starts later on Friday, continuing through to Sunday night, with the Daniel Morcombe Foundation taking over the festival infrastructure for the day the following morning (Monday October 1), the final day of the Fringe Festival, so make sure you catch these swing band performances.

The Fringe Festival has been going great guns so far, so if you haven’t visited Caloundra in the last few days, get down there – the atmosphere’s fantastic.

And don’t forget, the big screens will be up throughout the Music Festival site this weekend to make sure footy fans can see all the grand finals action without having to leave the festival domain.
