Relax, No One’s Going Anywhere at the Airlie Beach Festival of Music
No matter how low humanity sinks on an objective moral scale, no matter how easily cynicism mutates into complacency once filing taxes becomes necessary, the next generation can always be relied upon to irrepressibly infuse the air with fresh energy, shaking the foundations of archaic systems with limbs through which blood still circulates independently of a Revitive Circulation Booster.
Born of this rebellion, a Petri dish of youthful exuberance, anger, freedom and change, the music festival exemplifies this phenomenon like no other.
So, breathe in the air of revolution, feel the electricity, rage against the machine at the…uh…the Whitsunday Sailing Club.
Well…perhaps it was only a matter of time.
While it could be comforting in some ways to learn that humanity’s not functioning on an endless repetitive loop, the other option seems to be less loss of innocence followed by revolution-hungry anger followed by fiscal solvency, and more living and dying with your head in a bucket full of precooked jaded consumption.
Speaking of consuming precooked unrevelatory jadedness, John Butler will be headlining the Airlie Beach Festival of Music held at the aforementioned Whitsunday Sailing Club.
Now in its seventh year, the Airlie Beach Festival of Music is fast becoming one of Queensland’s premier live music events. Only in Airlie Beach can you see 74 bands alongside 74 islands in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.
With jaw-dropping sea views from the main tent at the Whitsunday Sailing Club, it’s a party like no other in a tropical paradise. Watch big name acts and discover new talent – there is something for every musical taste.
Featuring: John Butler, The Superjesus, John Williamson, Smokie (uk), Yothu Yindi, Mahalia Barnes, Bon But Not Forgotten and many more.
It won’t live to be a storied scene of musical anarchy, but perhaps we should be thankful for that.
We’ve work on Monday and have to visit the bank during lunch and anarchy tends to really back up traffic.
