Caloundra Music Festival is set to bring the party to the beach this year, with the introduction of the new Sand Stage.

Festival Director Richie Eyles said that for the first time a dedicated stage would be set up on the beach within the festival zone.

“We’ve dabbled in the past with a free small stage outside the festival, but for the first time this year the Sand Stage will be set up on the beach within the actual festival zone,” Mr Eyles said.

“We really wanted to show off the amazing King’s Beach and capitalise on the fact that CMF is set literally right beside the ocean.

“Festival goers can sit on the sand, have a dip in the water and listen to some cool tunes.

“We can fit 500 attendees on the beach and a further 1000 on the grass, and with the location combined with the fantastic line-up, we expect it to be a very popular new addition to the festival.”

Local up and coming singer-songwriter Mason Hope said he looked forward to performing on the new stage with his band.

“I’m super amped to be playing on the new Sand Stage,” Mason said.

“King’s Beach is an iconic Sunshine Coast beach and what better way to show it off then by including it in the actual festival site.

“It will be hard to not want to jump into the surf during my actual set!”

Other artists to perform on the Sand Stage will include The Dragon & The Turtle, THUMP, The Ruins, Dear Willow, Hayden Hack Trio and Iluka.

The stellar line-up set to headline this year’s CMF includes Ronan Keating, Xavier Rudd, Grinspoon, Wolfmother and Baby Animals.
