With amazing support from the local, Central Coast community, organisers have extended the 2017 festival site adding more stalls, entertainment and services. Which means a bucketload more fun for families, music & art lovers, foodies and skaters alike.
Invited back for the second year in a row by Central Coast Council, #LJSF17 is proud to be the closing event of the The Lakes Festival Program.
So what’s on offer at #LJSF17? With music and culture at the very heart of the Long Jetty Street Festival, the Six String Stage will be graced by the lady with five #1 Aria album chart toppers – Kasey Chambers. "I got to enjoy the Long Jetty Street Festival last year as an audience member and I'm so happy that I get to add my name to the line-up of performers this year," Kasey says.
"I've spent a lot of this past year playing all over the world, so it feels extra special to be able to play a gig in my home area on the Central Coast with so many great artists."
Central Coast's own will be joined by Sydney girl gang Rackett, who will be blowing the socks off punters along with local talent The Sea Gypsies and Ivy with more acts to be announced.
The Art Precinct will again offer live art, curated by creative powerhouse Bonnie Gray and local legend Grant Molony; both will be creating unique, moveable pieces within the Art Precinct on the day.
Sydney contemporary artist Elliott 'Numskull' Routledge, whose colourful murals and works have taken him around the world, will make his mark on the Coast by providing a unique, abstract mural on Thompson Street.
The Kidz Zone is upping the ante this year with Dress-Up Attack’s own entertainment booker and now Coastie local creative Loren McHenry curating the festivities.
Across the day you’ll catch roving and interactive entertainment from circus troupes, Blue Suede Shoes swing dancers, roller skating heroes Rollerfit, Roaming Stilt Walkers and more.
While the SLAM Factory Skate ramp will be action packed with plenty of impressive moves and setting up a sweet stall selling some rad boards.
Local legends MMAD (Musicians Making A Difference) have been added to the programme and will create a pop-up presence with a SpeakUP activation, a slam poetry event that has been home to world-class poets from literally all over the country and globe.
The 2017 Green Zone will see produce swaps, workshops and info sessions with local backyard bee keepers, worm farmers, permaculturists and plenty more.
