Five Acts You Don't Want To Miss At Caloundra Music Festival

The Caloundra Festival kicks off today, so get your exciting pants on and get ready for a loud vibey ride! So many acts and you don’t have a time turner? Don’t worry, we got you covered and highlighted 5 acts not to miss during this music madness!

The Beards

One does not simply shaves his beard off – the phrase could definitely be The Beards’ motto. Now, imagine. Long, long, long time ago, in 2005, when we didn’t actually know the word hipster and barbershops were not overcrowded by tattooed bearded men with hario coffee in one hand and fancy gadget in another, The Beards formed just for one show. With rough, edgy and folk-ish sound, great mix of vocals, upbeat tunes and ironic, funny lyrics (and attitude, to be honest), four beards got insanely popular. Surprisingly, the concept was in a hot demand and the guys started their journey of spreading the bearded love and appreciation around the country and later on, around the world. Looks like the concept worked out too well, amirite?

Xavier Rudd and The United Nations

For all you reggae-sounding, smile-calling, spiritual tunes lovers, here’s Xavier Rudd and The United Nations! It couldn’t be described better than did the Rolling stones magazine: “beautiful celebration of a global sound”. Xavier and guys manage to blend every single thing possible and achieve harmonic, soft and soulful sound. This sound and meaningful lyrics got Xavier Rudd to the top of the music popularity ladder pretty quickly. So please, make yourself comfortable and enjoy warming voice and melodies, brought by Xavier Rudd and The United Nations!

Frank Yamma

Ok, we all saw aboriginals playing and singing for the tourists’ fascination at the popular city spots. etc., etc. Though, to everyone’s sorrow, most of them are nothing but an attraction. Now, forget everything you’ve ever seen, heard or else, here’s Frank Yamma, fantastic true indigenous singer with amazing stories up his sleeve, honey voice and touching lyrics. Frank sings both in his native language and English, and aims to deliver only pure love, understanding, peace and joy through his lyrics and tunes. His love songs in Pitjantjatjara never leave anyone indifferent, making all hearts sing and beat in one rhythm.

Battleships

Sydney’s four-piece, Battleships, took huge responsibilities on their shoulders! Guys promised to create the sound they’d personally love to be listening to, so everyone else would enjoy it as well. Well, honestly, no one wants to write and play something their heart doesn’t feel, yeah? So, Jordan and Jonathan work hard on merging, mixing, blending the potion of perfect tunes and sound, accurately going back and forth between indie rock and post-Britpop to find their very own recognizable sound. Have a listen to Battleships and fall in love, as we did.

Baby Animals

Let’s confess, everyone loves it, when one band gets back together after being split up for a while. In 2007, Baby Animals pleased us with news of their reunion, and could this BE any better? These guys didn’t even think of stopping, they released an acoustic CD of their hits in 2008, on January 12, 2009, Baby Animals already announced national tour and by 2013 these wild things released brand new single called ‘Email’. Not bad, after 20 years apart! But wait, there was also a whole album This Is Not The End not long time afterwards. To enjoy their true old school, loud, rebellious sound and truly rock’n’roll performance you better not miss them this Caloundra Festival!
