Top Moments from Maroochy Music and Visual Arts Festival

Top Moments from Maroochy Music and Visual Arts Festival

| On 02, Sep 2017

This past weekend, we were lucky enough to attend Marroochy Music and Visual Arts Festival to take in one of Queensland’s best music festivals.

Since a lot of people are probably still feeling the good old post-festival blues, or regretting not getting their hands on a ticket, here’s a roundup of some of the highlights of the day.

5. Mallrat’s performance of Uninvited

Brisbane artist Mallrat took the MMVAF stage with some extremely relatable lyrics, stunning voice, and a very groovy outfit. Her interaction with the crowd and her bubbly personality made for a stellar performance. We can definitely see why Triple J has been giving her  love.

4. Anna of the North’s ethereal vocals

Anna of the North‘s set was nothing short of enchanting. Her dazzling vocals were the perfect way to transition from the day to night time sections of MMVAF.

3. Bernard Fanning‘s impressive multitasking

As if a set by a certified Aussie legend wasn’t exciting enough, Bernard Fanning’s set was bustling with sounds and sights, including him doubling up on instruments! Props should also be given to Bernard’s band who helped bring his classics to life on the MMVAF stage.

2. The Presets busting out their classic hits

The Presets have a pretty extensive and impressive catalogue of music, and their whole set was a testament to their long running success. Even though hits like My People and Talk Like That were released back in 2008, they still get a crowd going.

1. Gang of Youths doing basically anything

This one might not be as specific as it should be, but Gang of Youths’  set was all round excellent. Their onstage chemistry is amazing, you can really tell that they’re up there doing what they love, and they bounced that energy off each other really well. Of course, playing to a packed crowd who know all the words to Magnolia probably didn’t hurt either.
