Long Jetty Festival set to return

Last year's Long Jetty Festival attracted 20,000 people

The Long Jetty Festival is set to return on Sunday, April 21, with a one-day community celebration of art, culture and music.

Last year 20,000 people descended on the streets, shops and lakefront of Long Jetty for the inaugural festival.

This year music will be an integral part of the event’s programming, with Indie Folk duo The Dreggs and New Zealand’s own Coterie headlining on the main stage.

They will be joined by local faves Sun Soli and many more, including local buskers and musicians roaming the foreshore throughout the day.

The licensed bar area near the main stage will offer craft drops.

The entire area will be bustling with more than 250 stalls, five stages, and activation zones catering to all tastes and ages.

The Flea Market will offer a selection of vintage wares, records and plants.
