MMVAF

The already huge Maroochy Music & Visual Arts Festival (MMVAF) lineup gets even bigger by the day with a stack of exciting new music and visual artists.

Adding some chilltronica to the ampitheatre is none other than Japanese Wallpaper who has just released a brand new single 'Cocoon'. The triple j Unearthed High Alumni and Hottest 100 artist recently toured with M83 and is sure to work in hits like 'Forces' and 'Breathe In' among some other fresh cuts from his forthcoming album. This young beat master joins an already huge contingent of legendary artists including Matt Corby, Peking Duk, Allday, George Maple, Client Liaison, Ngaiire, City Calm Down, Bad//Dreems, Vera Blue & Pop Cult.

Returning with gusto on Saturday September 10, MMVAF promises an immersive arts experience alongside a natural ampitheatre mainstage at the old Horton Park Golf Course. Placing a huge emphasis on visual arts, MMVAF 2.0 features a specially commissioned work by renowned artist Amanda Parer to be unveiled on the day. Last year she created huge infamous bunnies, this year her giant, luminous work 'Fantastic Planet' will debut at MMVAF before touring around the globe. A myriad of visual artists join Amanda to complement the festival's trademark rolling greens, diving right into the fantastical, the surreal, and the magical explorations of the universe. Additions to the lineup today include Chinese street artist Ochid and locals Zoe Porter, Gimiks Born & Thom Stuart.
