Fans of great music and good vibes, get excited because Missy Higgins, the Baby Animals, The Church, Kate Miller-Heidke and The Cat Empire are amongst the phenomenal line-up headed to the Sunshine Coast for this year’s Caloundra Music Festival from October 4-7.

Festival Director Richie Eyles said the 2019 festival program would have broad appeal including top Australian acts, exciting emerging artists and quality internationals.

“We always try to curate a line-up to please a range of musical pallets from our Australian headliners like Missy Higgins and The Cat Empire, to our international guests like Turkuaz and Prince’s New Power Generation”.

Australia’s own 2019 Eurovision contestant Kate Miller-Heidke will grace the stage with her operatic, angelic voice and supported by a string quartet.

Continuing to celebrate their 30th Anniversary, The Church will be returning to Australia from a year-long tour across the USA and Europe to enjoy our beautiful Sunshine Coast.

Australian Hip Hop will get a run with the Resin Dogs, and the highly energetic, The Cat Empire who were a festival hit in 2016, return this year with an all new album “Stolen Diamonds” to play live, along with their hits.

Famed as a child prodigy, Nathan Cavaleri had performed with BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Albert Collines by the time he was 12!  He joins the CMF line up along with ARIA award winners Missy Higgins and Ben Lee both returning to CMF for the second time by popular demand.

Powerful front women Suzie DeMarchi and Sara McLeod will rock the crowds with The Baby Animals and The Superjesus.

Performing together on stage, Wendy Matthews & Grace Knight present ‘We’re Going To Graceland – The Songs of Simon & Garfunkel.’ Taking you on an unforgettable journey across the many hits and crowd favourites of one of the world’s greatest living songwriters, Paul Simon as well as over 3-decades of their own personal classics.
