Sunlit Sounds Festival – Saturday 4 September2021

The Schrinner Council provides support to community groups and schools who host festivals during the year across the ward. 

This year’s budget has allocated funding to Sunlit Sounds Festival from the Festival Funding Program. We are pleased to be able to support the festival this year after the pandemic forced the cancellation in 2020.

Payne Road State School will be hosting Sunlit Sounds this year and we look forward to listening to an amazing line up of musicians kicking off at 2pm on the school oval and partying on until the evening.

Food trucks will be onsite offering a wide range of foods and Payne Road State School will run the bar! Secure your Tickets via Eventbrite, keep up to date with all the news from the Festival on facebook.com/sunlitsoundsfestival 

We’re hosting some great festivals this year so please follow me on facebook for updates: facebook.com/TheGapWard
