Sustainable Partnership Australia (SPA) will host the Homegrown Music Festival at Kings Beach this Saturday 19th July.
Homegrown is an alternative music festival designed to give local musicians a platform to perform and express themselves to a local audience. The event has been made possible through online crowd funding.
SPA Event Coordinator, Amy Doran said she was excited to announce that fans and local businesses raised an outstanding $8201 to ensure the event could go ahead.
“Homegrown Festival is definitely an event young people and the community on the Sunshine Coast want to see return and have proven that by crowd funding the event,” Amy said.
The event will showcase bands between the ages of 12 and 25 years from Sunshine Coast and Brisbane regions, ranging from genres such as Indie-Rock, Post-Hardcore, Metal, Pop Punk.
The line up includes local bands Take Us to Vegas, Hope in Hand and Countdown to Armageddon. The event will run two stages of acts from 10.00am to 5.00pm.
“Homegrown is a community event, that is free and SPA encourages people of all ages to attend and have a fun day out,” Amy said.
Amy said Homegrown is a festival that unites the Sunshine Coast community by bringing together young people, musicians, community organisations and local businesses.
The Homegrown Festival is a drug and alcohol free environment for people of all ages to get involved and express themselves safely.
“The event is also designed in the hope that it will breakdown barriers between generations and challenge common stereotypes within our local community,” Amy said.
