Elec­tri­fy­ing sounds hit fes­ti­val

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

THE ex­cit­ing sounds of two Aus­tralian bands are get­ting louder fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment of the Whit­sun­day Reef Fes­ti­val’s head­line acts.

Townsville’s King So­cial, who gained pop­u­lar­ity af­ter com­pet­ing in Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent last year, and fes­ti­val favourites, Elec­trik Lemon­ade, will take to the stage to de­liver elec­tri­fy­ing per­for­mances.

Front man of King So­cial, An­gus Milne, said au­di­ences could ex­pect some sur­prises on the night.

“We’re re­ally keen to give peo­ple a sneak peek at one or two songs that might make it on our up­com­ing de­but al­bum,” he said, ad­ding, “our sound is a blend of coun­try, hip hop, rock and reg­gae, per­fect for back­pack­ers, bo­gans, bushies and beau­ties”.

“Pun­ters should bring their danc­ing shoes, and ex­pect to sing un­til they’re hoarse, with a fun night of upbeat mu­sic mix­ing,” he promised.

Whit­sun­day Reef Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee chair­per­son, Margie Mur­phy, said she was im­pressed with what King So­cial brought to the stage.

“I saw King So­cial as fi­nal­ists in Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent last year and thought they’d be per­fect for the fes­ti­val,” she said.

“And be­ing a North Queens­land band - it’s a great chance for Air­lie to ex­pe­ri­ence an up-and-com­ing tal­ented band.”

Both bands will per­form on Satur­day, Au­gust 6, on the Beach Mu­sic main stage in the cen­tre of town.

Aside from live mu­sic, the 10day event, from Au­gust 5 to 14, has some­thing for every­one, with mar­ket stalls, car­ni­val rides and plenty of food and drink in­corpo- rated. The pop­u­lar Street Pa­rade and the Revvin’ the Reef Car Show will be back on the Satur­day for all to en­joy, as well as a Fam­ily Fun Day on Sun­day of­fer­ing loads of free fun.
