All systems go for Rangebow!


The cost-of-living, interest rates and wet weather can’t stop The Rangebow Festival. With plenty of free entertainment in the mix from August 1 - 4, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, prepare to have some much-needed FUN!


Thanks to the generous support of Sunshine Coast Council, Visit Sunshine Coast and many amazing business sponsors, tickets are available now for The Rangebow Festival (therangebowfestival.org).


Festival Director, Wayne Parcell, shared with us his excitement for the unfolding events, “We are delivering on our promise following last year’s festival, and some of the best things at Rangebow 2024 are free.


“The Enchanted Garden, from Friday to Sunday, offers a full day of live music, entertainment, quirky performances and so much more. Everyone can find some joy in the festival, especially in these tough times.”  


The line-up includes some previous HT feature story artists, such as Frank and Louis, Shanleigh Rose, plus Andy V and Sophie Delightful’s Circus Performance.  


“You will be thoroughly entertained thanks to the generosity of event sponsor Montville Gourmet Bistro, who is picking up the tab! Bring the whole family, picnic on the Montville Village Green, enjoy a drink, grab a snack and relax.”


Wayne said they had managed to keep their pricing the same as, or below, last year’s. “We are a not-for-profit and we want people to have something to look forward to that won’t cost anything.


“We have also reorganised the festival using existing facilities, as we want it to feel different from last year.”


Popular events are back, such as Forage Fire Feast a fiery First Nations gourmet food and culture experience at Flaxton Gardens, After-dinner Mintz - Burlesque night with Scarlet Tinkerbell and The Kitty-Kats in Maleny, and the Opera Symphony Premiere featuring the Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra playing a classical and operatic program with acclaimed opera singers.  


“We also have the Chapel of Love, Tennis High Tea, Walk on the Wild Side – Platypus Whispers, Plant & Party in Montville, and the Drag Run-a-way Pageant returns after previous sell-out years. 


“The world premiere interactive theatre experience Come Fly With Me will have you reaching for the oxygen mask and your life jacket, if you’re not laughing in the aisles. 

 

“We had over 5000 attending last year according to an economic survey, and we are hoping for even more for 2024. It will be wonderful for our hinterland economy and for all our creatives who need work in these financially turbid times,” said Wayne.


“We want this to be a safe space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Our aim is to lighten the mood and brighten people’s day!”
