Lowkey event set to go off with a bang
  • Wednesday 23 April 2008

It might be called Lowkey, but the event promises to be anything but that with some of the Coast’s most talented musicians teaming up for an afternoon of live music and family entertainment on the Kawana foreshore.

Featuring market stalls and a free twilight screening of the family favourite ‘Surfs Up’, the all-ages event will showcase some of the best local independent musicians to ever perform on one stage.

Regional Director Community Services Lisbet Dean said the event is a great opportunity for locals to experience the best the Coast has to offer in live, original talent.

“The Coast is a melting pot of original, contemporary artists, and this is a rare opportunity to catch some of the best in the relaxed surrounds of the Kawana foreshore,” Ms Dean said.

Performers include the internationally acclaimed OKA, along with local performers including For All Colours, Frisbee or Die, Huriana, Massey, the Mike McCombe Band and Sue-anne.

The event is also an opportunity to promote the region’s very own youth film festival, SCRUFFFY (Sunshine Coast Regional Underground Film Festival for Young People), which will be staged across the Coast from June 28 until 5 July.

An initiative of the Sunshine Coast Regional Council’s Youthlinx program in conjunction with Lifeline, the event is also supported by Kawana Surf Club and Band Print.

Lowkey by the Sea kicks off from 12 noon until 9pm on Saturday, in the park at Kawana Surf Club.
