It’s not often some of the greatest acts in contemporary Australian music converge on Noosa’s shores and stages for ten whole days! From 21 to 30 July, NOOSA alive! will set our senses ablaze with mesmerising concerts and music festivals across the coast.

Tune in to our must-see performances, from the soulful, crackling warmth of Kate Ceberano and Vika & Linda; to the synergies of jazz and classical between Meg Washington & Paul Grabowsky or the Riverside Guitar Ensemble; to electrifying line-ups of homegrown musicians at Seaside Vibes.
