It’s here. Horizon Festival 2023 opens tomorrow, August 25, bringing 10 days and nights of art, music and more, from the coast to the hinterland.

It all starts with the free Opening Ceremony in Cotton Tree Park from 5pm.

There will be special performances from Gubbi Gubbi Dance Troupe and an epic rhythmic performance from Dancenorth Australia and the Horizon drumming band who’ll beat out a scintillating live score in NOISE.

It doesn’t end there, with an opening weekend jam-packed with free activities for all ages and interests.

Throughout the festival, wind down and watch the sunset as Live & Local presents free music and good times every afternoon in the Festival Hub garden.

Or, if visual art is more your thing, you’ll find exhibitions across the region including the Sunshine Coast Art Prize at Caloundra Regional Gallery.

Every day in the Festival Hub you’ll find a range of free drop-in kids’ activities, from hands-on floral experiences and kids’ yoga sessions to Dr Hubble and his amazing bubbles.

Dawn Awakening will close the festival on September 3 and it’s well worth setting the alarm for this magical performance. Gather along the banks of Stumers Creek, Coolum at first light for an experience that will last a lifetime.

And that’s just a few of the free highlights. There are more than 50 events to explore, including music, comedy, cabaret, circus and theatre.

Plan your experience and grab tickets at horizonfestival.com.au or visit the box office in Cotton Tree Park.
