Come to the Sunshine Coast

It´s that time of year again. Time to lay back and enjoy some of the finest live musical talent in restaurants and other local venues during Jazz Week, and right through to Sunday afternoon of the 18th Annual Gibsons Landing Jazz Festival, June 14 - 16th on the Sunshine Coast.

A big change this year, we are taking the Main Stage Festival, June 15, 12:00-5:00pm to
the street!

Gower Point Road in Gibsons Landing will be closed to thru traffic as we present Celso Machado, the Lumiere/Penfold Quintet, Hugh Fraser Quintet and Tambura Rasa, on the main stage. A second ´Bus Stop Stage´ for the kids with ´The Legion of Flying Monkeys', street performers and a special streaming live filming of the ´Festival Dancers´ will add to the festivities. Community groups, food and craft vendors will line the streets. Buying a ticket for the day´s events will give you a wrist band that will get you discounts from participating ´Landing´. With tents and additional seating we´ll be ready for rain or shine! Come out and enjoy the sights and sounds at this NEW Street Festival day overlooking the stunning Gibsons Harbour.

The kick-off to the Festival Weekend, June 14th features a concert by the Steve Giltrow Quartet at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery. Saturday night enjoy dinner with the Jazz Group of Seven at Boomers Burger Bar before the dance at the Roberts Creek Hall with the 10-piece funk/soul band, Soulstream! Sunday enjoy Jazz Brunch with Ali Milner at Leo´s restaurant, take in the free Sunday afternoon Festival in Winegarden Park overlooking the Gibsons Harbour with, The Creek Big Band, WAG (a 4-piece a capella group) and Mimosa then wind down the festival weekend with Jazz Vespers at St Bart´s Church from 5:00 - 6:00pm.

Wow! What a week it´s going to be. Get the entire schedule and band details from
