2018 CMF Community Ticket Applications are now closed

Congratulations to our 2018 CMF Community Ticket Recipients

Over the past 12 years Caloundra Music Festival has assisted many community organisations to raise much needed funds as well as providing disadvantaged families with memories that will last a lifetime.

In 2018 we will continue to support our local and greater community by providing opportunity, support and prizes. Due to the vast amount of requests for support we have specific categories for NFPs; community groups / charities, schools and local sporting clubs to apply for the provision of tickets to the 2018 Caloundra Music Festival for fundraising purposes or special experiences.

While requests may be for a worthy cause, the Caloundra Music Festival must exercise due diligence in the management of its resources and assets and therefore is unable to provide support to all requests received. All requests for support will be assessed on a case by case basis in accordance with assessment criteria.

Applications open annually in conjunction with the ticket release with each application being assessed upon receipt. Please allow 3 weeks processing time at the end of which the charities will be notified accordingly.

(1) Fund Raising purposesThere are three categories in which groups may apply for tickets: Allocation Exhausted

  • Charity/Not for profit Community groups
  • Sunshine Coast Schools & Kindergartens
  • Local Sporting Groups

Each category has a number of packages available
There is a limit of one package per group per calendar year:

  • 1 x Season Family package – 2 Adults, 1 Youth and 1 Children

(2) Community Care : There is one category in which groups may apply for tickets to provide a special experience for disadvantaged people in our community: Allocation Exhausted

  • Charity/Not for profit Community groups

Applications will be assessed based on the following criteria:

  • Is the applicant a registered Queensland charitable organisation (please provide ACNC number) or a Sunshine Coast school or registered sporting club?
  • Has the group previously received Caloundra Music Festival support?  CMF aims to assist as many groups as possible. Groups who have received support in previous years will be considered, but are unlikely to receive tickets in 2018 as we endeavour to create equitable access to these tickets for all Sunshine Coast groups.
  • The applicant’s description of how support from Caloundra Music Festival will benefit the group.
