WINTERMOON’S Springfest is com­ing back to the Whit­sun­days in Septem­ber for a laid-back, in­ti­mate event cel­e­brat­ing spring with mu­sic, art and soul.

Not to be con­fused with Wintermoon’s May Fes­ti­val, Springfest oc­curs spo­rad­i­cally and has a fo­cus on re­lax­ation, in­volve­ment and fine mu­sic.

The fes­ti­val will be run­ning a range of in­ter­ac­tive work­shops, in­clud­ing mu­sic, dance, yoga, med­i­ta­tion, self-suf­fi­ciency, and art ther­apy as well as art work­shops and other ac­tiv­i­ties for the chil­dren.

Renowned for its mu­sic, Springfest will be bring­ing a stel­lar line-up to en­ter­tain the masses.

Favourite iconic band Jigzag is re­turn­ing on a re­union tour while the David Flower Band, Benji and the Salt­wa­ter Sound Sys­tem, the Hum­buck­ing Pick­ups, the Jimmy Watts Band, Franke and the Am­s­ter­dam Trade will also make an ap­pear­ance.

Swoon, Chon­tia and Par­ris, Nick and Liesel and Pel­i­can Zen will be head­ing the 2018 duos with Lee Nel­son, Peter Van Herk, Tim Woods and Adam Cousens as the tal­ented soloists on the pro­gram.

Uke maestros Anu Grace and Lau­rie By­croft will also be re­turn­ing to share their lively style with the many ukelele play­ers in the re­gion.

Long-time sup­porter and vol­un­teer of Wintermoon Pam Pole said the event was made unique by its lo­ca­tion and warm vibes.

“What makes it dif­fer­ent is the set­ting,” Ms Pole said.

“It’s the beau­ti­ful, ru­ral, pic­turesque set­ting,.

“It’s away from crowds and there is a vibe of friend­ship that is unique to Wintermoon.

“Springfest is a re­ju­ve­nat­ing spring ex­pe­ri­ence and a per­fect time to en­joy some fun and friend­ship.”

Early­bird tick­ets are avail­able un­til Septem­ber 9.
