Airlie Beach Festival of Music

Festivals and Celebrations

4 Nov 2022 to 6 Nov 2022 Annual Event

With a reputation for being the ultimate party in paradise, the Airlie Beach Festival of Music is where live music meets the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland’s Whitsundays.

Boasting jaw-dropping views from the main tent on the water’s edge at the Whitsunday Sailing Club, this is no simple stage in a paddock.

Fans get to watch big-name acts and also discover the best emerging talent from around the country sourced through the festival’s ‘Passport to Airlie’ national talent search, Australia’s largest live, original music initiative.

With the program spread throughout multiple venues across the entire town, the atmosphere is electric.

The 3-day festival is book-ended by the Passport to Airlie final on the Thursday, and an After Party in the idyllic setting of Northerlies Beach Bar on the Monday. Music lovers can come for a single day or all five, with a choice of standard tickets or a VIP pass.

Now in its 10th year, the Airlie Beach Festival of Music has earned its stripes as one of Queensland’s premier live music events and is now also the ‘People’s Choice’ Queensland Music Awards 2022 ‘Festival of the Year’.

With The Animals (UK). Eskimo Joe, Rogue Traders, Ben Lee, Mi-Sex, The Bad loves already on the lineup and more headliners to be announced, this is a festival in paradise not to be missed.
