Mackay and Whitsunday Life

One Week To Go For Music Fans

The Airlie Beach Festival of Music is just around the corner, with over a hundred talented musicians from all over the country (some from all over the world!) arriving in the Whitsundays in the coming days.

This Thursday the central ticket office at the Whitsunday Sailing Club mainstage tent will open, offering festival attendees a place to purchase tickets and collect their pre-paid wristbands.

It is open from 10am but if you come down from 6pm that evening you will also be able to watch the Passport to Airlie Grand Final which will feature eight talented musical acts from all across Australia.

These eight finalists have been hand-selected from dedicated competitions, winning their heats to receive a place in the grand finale.

They will all play on the mainstage on Thursday evening and the winner will be in the line-up to play on the mainstage next year.

After the eight acts there will be a special performance by event ambassador, Sarah McLeod from The Superjesus.

Get ready for a party like no other in tropical paradise – with jaw-dropping sea views this is the festival where live music meets the Great Barrier Reef.

The mainstage, located inside the striking big-top tent, is an intimate festival village which hosts craft beer stalls and pop-up bars, food vans and of course a huge stage with high-tech lighting and sound.

Three day passes cost $300 and full-day passes are $140.

Tickets can be purchased online at or from the dedicated ticketing office outside the main stage.
