Corona SunSets Festival is returning to Australia this summer! Launching seaside on the shores of Wollongong’s beautiful North Beach, the festival is set to showcase a wave of incredible music, food, arts, market stalls, eco workshops and more on Saturday 1 December 2018.
Corona SunSets has brought the heat to stages around the world, from Japan to Italy, Canada, the UK and the sold out inaugural Australian SunSets Festival in Fremantle in 2016, recruiting world class acts like Duke Dumont, Robin Schulz and Flight Facilitates to head up their festival crews.
In Australia, the hugely popular series of SunSets music tours have taken the likes of Portugal. The Man, Cloud Control, The Rubens and currently Touch Sensitive around the country, and now Corona is turning it up a notch to present a destination festival like no other.
In a festival first for Wollongong, the main stage will take shape right on the sand, spilling out onto the picturesque surrounds of North Beach. Expect ocean breezes, summer sunsets, amazing tunes, delicious food, arts, eco-workshops and of course icy cold Coronas and Cerveza Cocktails to complete your summer festival vibe.
North Beach, Wollongong, has to be one of the most spectacular festival sites in the country, with its pristine sand, towering pine trees, heritage-listed Bathers’ Pavilion and views across to Flagstaff Hill and the lighthouse. The beach itself hasn’t been utilised for a major music festival before but it makes perfect sense that Corona, a brand that is so intrinsically linked to beach culture, is the first to provide audiences the opportunity to immerse themselves in this unique festival experience. – Destination Wollongong General Manager Mark Sleigh.
Beyond the celebration of summer, Corona SunSets Festival will focus on marine plastic pollution. In partnership with local suppliers and NGOs Corona will reduce single-use plastic at the event by removing plastic bottles, cups, cutlery, plates, wristbands and more.
Corona SunSets Festival celebrates nature’s most magical moment, one that never fails to unite friends around the world and is made even more spectacular when enjoyed on the pristine beach at North Wollongong, with the sand between your toes. As a brand that is synonymous with beach culture, we will use this opportunity to educate all event goers on the importance of protecting these salty playgrounds from threats such as marine plastic pollution, so that our future generations can continue to enjoy them. Join us and some of Australia’s most popular artists of the moment, to share the sunset, music and some icy cold cervezas. – Corona Australia Marketing Manager, Andy Vance.
