The much-loved Buskers by the Lake event will see a reimagined format as it gears up to celebrate its 10th year.
Gypsyland On Tour will see performances and acts at various venues across the Sunshine Coast after festival organisers announced the cancellation of the main event, which was scheduled to take place at Lake Kawana.
Your Mates Brewing, Drift Bar, Duporth Tavern and Nambour Beach House are locked-in venues, with local musicians, including Drew Wilson, set to feature.
The singer-songwriter who loves guitar pop and alternate country will be playing songs from his recent album Happy Mess, as well as unreleased songs.
He says he loves the opportunity that events such as this gives artists, especially when they happen in his own backyard.
“Giving you an opportunity to play your original music for people who have never heard of you is priceless,” he says.
“Every ear helps you along the journey and it’s great connecting with new fans.”
The festival will run from August 18 to 20 with full details of the updated program to be announced in the coming weeks. Visit buskersbythelake.com.au.
