SEA N SOUND FESTIVAL HITS FRANKSTON
Sea N Sound Festival will be making its way to Frankston on Saturday 18 November, aiming to create a boutique blend of coastal lifestyle and culture with great focus on the best live music, local food and Australian craft beer. Held at Frankston Park; overlooking the magnificent vista of Port Phillip Bay, Sea n Sound Festival is shaping up to be the biggest contemporary event to hit Frankston, with a line up that will bring the sound of nostalgia to anyone’s ear. Aussie favourites Jebediah headline the inaugural Sea N Sound Frankston, joined by New Zealand grunge rock legends SHIHAD, Adelaide rockers The Superjesus, and Frankston punk rockers 28 DAYS. Add seasoned Vic indie rock darlings, Dallas Crane and local boys The
Diecasts and you have yourself a day out that will rock your foundations. Frankston City Mayor, Cr Brian Cunial has said: “Serving up more than the average fanfare, the exciting new Sea N Sound event, part of Council’s 2017-2018 Tourism Event Attraction Program, is set to serve up a treat to visitors from all over the region.” Along with Local Craft Brewer pop-up “Beer Gardens” and a tantalising selection of local seafood offerings and food trucks, any beach lover in Australia will be left with no choice, but to come and revel in everything that makes Frankston Peninsula one of Australia’s most loved destinations.
