Now in its 12th year, the Noosa Long Weekend Festival takes place in various venues across Noosa with 85+ free and ticketed events on offer featuring a host of international, national and local guests.  The multi-arts genre program includes literature, music, cabaret, theatre, dance, forums, comedy and supper clubs, food, workshops and free events.


Festival Director, Ian Mackellar said that whilst some events were sold out, tickets remained available for the majority of events with local resorts, hotels and apartments offering great accommodation deals to festival patrons.

“The beauty of our festival is the quality, accessibility and affordability of it all. With 10,000 tickets on offer there is still the opportunity for audiences to come and enjoy a Long Weekend experience.
“A few tickets remain for our sensational opening night and Saturday performances of 4 Seasons in 1 Night with Bobby Fox of  Jersey Boys Australia and Hot Shoe Shuffle fame.  It’s the Queensland premiere of Bobby’s new show and will be something really special for audiences.

“We pride ourselves on being ‘first’ for a number of events, so other Queensland premieres include the wildly entertaining Tom Sharah with his contemporary cabaret show It’s Raining Me as part of a double bill show with Sarah-Louise Young and Julie Madly Deeply; the super talented David Pomeranz from New York with his poignant tribute to the life of Charlie Chaplin in his show ChaplinMeow Meow’s self titled kamikaze cabaret show; Bernadette Robinson’s Evening With concert featuring songs from her favourite singers and songwriters; Robyn Archer’s French cabaret show ‘Que-Reste-t’il’David Williamson’s new play, Happiness as performed by Sydney’s Ensemble Theatre Company  and finally the Australian Cabaret Showcase performance with Bradley McCaw and Amelia Ryan.


Ian said that the festival’s literary program had some “big names” coming to town with Ramona Koval, David MaloufMichael Leunig and Matt Condon visiting as part of the 13 total authors featured in the program.


Brisbane’s Expressions Dance Company will present two contemporary dance pieces at the festival and the serious side of life will be explored through a range of forums exploring topics as varied as clean energy, refugees, women in power, near death experiences, what China thinks of Australia and more.

If it all gets too serious however, the perfect antidote for audiences will be the inaugural Comedy Club or festival favourites such as food events, late-night supper clubs and workshops.


“The Noosa Long Weekend Festival is a truly unique and special event, Ian said.

“Our audiences come from all over Australia to enjoy a diverse and world class program which is presented in a range of intimate Noosa venues.
“It’s up close and personal, inspiring and entertaining – everything a festival should be.”
