Line-up of artists performing at this year’s Spring Fest
Give Spring the start it deserves on the first Saturday of September with the thrilling line-up of musical artists performing at Rainbow’s first reggae, blues, folk, and roots music festival..
The eclectic mix of internationally recognised acts will push you to feel the rhythm, explore culture, and discover music.
Although there is some last-minute disappointing news – the latest border restrictions have meant that popular multidisciplinary artist Fred Leone is now unable to perform.
But the great news is that Spring Fest organisers have done a wonderful job finding a perfect substitute.
“Fred Leone’s work has inspired me to support expression through music, especially for the younger generations,” said event creator Elisa Seul.
“He would be glad to know that we are giving the space on stage to a young rising act: Aspy Jones. They are a local family band, full of beans, and they fit the true spirit of the Rainbow Beach Spring Fest.”
The rest of the line-up remains unchanged:
Embracing the future without losing sight of the past, OKA draws upon their indigenous connection to place and country to create their signature feel good Australian earth sound, an irresistible blend of influences spanning house, big beat, reggae-dub, Roots, Jazz and world music.
A mashup of dance & downtempo electro beats marinated in the mystical spirit of the Dreamtime.
Hat Fitz & Cara
Hat Fitz & Cara’s musical style is a unique combination of folk, roots and gospel blues with old time flavourings reminiscent of a time once forgotten.
Together this pair will take you on a musical journey with ample, boisterous highs, and longing, bluesy lows. From the Australian outback to the Canadian shield, Hat Fitz & Cara put on a show that is guaranteed to energize and invigorate.
The Lyrical (Karl Smith) continues to be a rising star of the Sunshine Coast music scene. Following in the footsteps of Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Michael Franti and Xavier Rudd, The Lyrical’s “unique blend of beat-boxing meshed with folk guitar and socially conscious lyrics” (City News) is fast becoming one of those artists who demand your attention.
