Sun-kissed band ready for festival
THE Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest rocks the Noosa Hinterland again next weekend.
This year, fresh from its European tour, Caravana Sun will headline the festival, ahead of more than 150 other artists.
Caravana Sun, just back from the Pure Madnes (sic) Festival in the Netherlands is a Sydney band comprised of Luke Carra, Ant Beard, Alex Dumbrell and Ken Allars.
It describes its sound as rebellious surf rock and is keen to play at Mitchell Creek.
Mitchell Creek, now in its third year, is a major draw-card for rock and blues music lovers from all over the country.
Organisers are confident the three-day event will be just as popular as in previous years and are keen to encourage people in the cities to come out and camp for the weekend.
"Experiences like the Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest are designed to get you out of town and take you on an adventure that connects you with friends, soul and roots music and like-minded people in an intimate and inspirational setting," a spokesperson said.
The event runs for three days and nights and camping is encouraged, with free camping, plenty of toilet and shower facilities and market stalls and fresh local food available on site.
Organisers limit the number of tickets on sale to keep the festival's intimate feel and to cut down on queues.
"...You can get lost in the music without getting lost in the crowd," organisers said.
Weekend and day passes are available, with students at half price and children under 12 free.
