Funky fringe festival sets the scene<br />

The <strong>Sunshine</strong> <strong>Coast</strong>’s hugely<br />

popular Caloundra Music Festival<br />

will be adorned with a fringe this<br />

year – a Fringe Festival, that is.<br />

The new weekend for the Music<br />

Festival is now 28 to 30 September –<br />

right in the middle of the spring school<br />

holidays. To capitalise on that, you<br />

are invited to join the inaugural Fringe<br />

Festival event held during the week<br />

leading up to the Music Festival.<br />

Many businesses and community<br />

groups have come together to put on<br />

the biggest range of entertainment –<br />

but there’s still space for more!<br />

The Music Festival’s line-up includes<br />

acts from the present and the past,<br />

including headliners such as The Cat<br />

Empire, The Living End, and the John<br />

Butler Trio along with Lanie Lane,<br />

Boom Crash Opera, The Whitlams<br />

and many more.<br />

Homegrown<br />

festival boosted<br />

by grant<br />

Hosted by UnitingCare<br />

Community, Homegrown is a<br />

free community festival run by<br />

young people, for young people<br />

during National Youth Week.<br />

Organisers say this year’s event<br />

would not have been possible<br />

without the financial support from<br />

council’s Community Grants<br />

Program. The current round<br />

of Community Grants (open to<br />

not-for-profit groups) closes at<br />

5pm on 1 September. For details<br />
