There are some big-name artists from around the globe descending on the Whitsundays including Smash Mouth, Marcia Hines, Ash Grunwald, Dave Dobbyn, The Church, Killing Heidi, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Ted Mulry Gang, Kasey Chambers, Frankie J Holden and Wilbur Wilde, Diana Anaid, Bustamento and a host of others. Only at the Airlie Beach Festival of Music can you see 74 bands alongside 74 islands in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. With jaw-dropping views from the main tent almost surrounded by the Coral Sea, it’s a party in a tropical paradise. The Festival is now in its sixth year and is fast becoming one of the country’s most popular boutique music festivals.

Festival goers can join in on all the action at the main marquee at the Whitsunday Sailing Club or enjoy many of the other venues dotted around beautiful downtown Airlie Beach and experience the town coming alive to the sound of music. The atmosphere is electric! Watch big name acts and discover new talent - there is something to satisfy every musical taste.

Stroll from venue to venue, with Community Ambassadors available to answer all questions. Free courtesy buses run Friday to Sunday for safety and convenience- leave the hassle of driving and parking to them!

And did we mention how affordable it is? Buy a three-day pass and enjoy all this for less than $4 a band!

We also encourage you to extend your stay and take advantage of the many tour opportunities to experience the Whitsundays.
