More about Horizon Festival
Sunshine Coast Council Arts Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski said Wonderland Spiegeltent’s arrival, with its lavish billowing curtains and deep red opulence, had sent a ripple of excitement through the community.
“Horizon Festival is certainly set to provide the cultural outlet everyone has been searching for in the wake of the previous year’s COVID lockdowns,” Mr Baberowski said.
“And although the festival hub is in the Cotton Tree parkland, Horizon Festival will actually span 25 event locations across the Sunshine Coast, providing an eclectic mix of live music, theatre, visual art, comedy and more which will showcase the region and its artists to best effect.
“Over 10 days and nights, the fabulous line up of acts and events will also provide a much welcomed economic boost across the region.
“Hotels are booking, restaurants are filling and savvy businesses are reaping the benefits of the patrons being able to see the festival in person.”
