Moonlit Soundscapes

Saturday 17 June
St Peter & St John Church
Free & Ticketed

When night falls, head up to St Peter & St John Church to relax and experience an atmospheric mix of classical and acoustic music. Featuring exceptional international and local performers, we bring you an eclectic smorgasbord of styles and sounds to transport you through a magical moonlight dreamscape.


Moonlit Soundscapes is one of our Sundown Events: a series of ticketed events that keep the festival going in town once the beach site closes at Dusk on Saturday Night.
