NOOSA alive! an annual performing arts festival will once again take to Noosa main beach with 4 days of entertainment, within the broader 10-day festival from the 15th to 24th of July.
NOOSAalive! president Andrew Stafford said the all-new Seaside Beach Vibes on Main Beach event, from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th July, would include a variety of performances and entertainment from Opera under the stars to literary events and performances from some of the local singers and bands, all under the clear-roof Evie Networks Marquee, surrounded by the picturesque scenery of Main Beach.
Mr Stafford said across the four days of Seaside Beach Vibes, there was something for everyone.
“Whether you like classical music or soulful singers or something to get up and dance to, Seaside Beach Vibes has got it all.
“We start off on Thursday 15th July, with the Noosa Starlight Opera on the Beach featuring Metropolitan opera stars, soprano Rachelle Durkin and tenor Kang Wang, beautifully supported by pianist John Woods,” Mr Stafford said.
He said on Friday 16th July, there will be an opportunity to hear from best-selling crime author Candice Fox.
“While you enjoy a delicious grazing box and beverage, you will have the opportunity to listen to Candice talk about her amazing life and read from her gripping eighth book The Chase.
Candice said her books were informed by her unique life experience.
“I’ve been around prisons my whole life. My dad being a parole officer started the fixation and my mother kind of encouraged it with her love of true crime. At one point my mother had 20 prison pen pals on the go at the same time and would read the letters to me as a kid,” Ms Fox said.
Mr Stafford said Friday 16th would also see the good vibes roll in like high tides for the 1st annual Seaside Vibes Music Festival, hosted by Noosa Alive! which would run over three days.
“The lineup is phenomenal, with performances by Nattali Rize & the Black Sistaz, Chocolate Strings, Beauty & The Beats as well as Demi Casha, Felicity Lawless, Forrest Run, The Brains Trust, Tijuana Cartel, and Tess Fapani.
“We also have Katie Noonan with Ben Hauptmann performing Joni Mitchell’s Blue in a 50th anniversary tribute to close Seaside Vibes.
“As well as the four days of great entertainment, people will also get a taste of the region from The Local Bar with supplying local beverages alongside wine from Nelson Wine Co within the beautifully styled marquee, courtesy of LB Event,” Mr Stafford said.
