The Agnes Blues, Roots & Rock Festival is held annually across one weekend in February in the stunning destination of Agnes Water and 1770 on the sensational Southern Great Barrier Reef.
Live music, licensed bar, a variety of food vendors and markets to suit all tastes, plus an intimate vibe, are highlight features of this all-weather event, with plenty of undercover space to chill out or dance your socks off. Shuttle Bus service at a minimal cost is available across the entire Festival between a range of accommodation points to maximise your #AgnesBluesFest experience.
19-21 February 2021 will see the 7th Agnes Blues, Roots & Rock Festival rocking out, organised by Discovery Coast Tourism & Commerce Inc (DCTC); however, the 2021 Festival will in actual fact be the 14th of its kind, having been organised previously by the Gladstone Entertainment Centre (under the Gladstone Regional Council) from 2008-2014.
Brought to life and power-housed each year behind the scenes and front of house by a dedicated and passionate team of volunteers from across a vibrant local community, the Agnes Blues, Roots & Rock Festival experience is unforgettably intimate while showcasing high caliber performers in a beautiful coastal destination. One very special opportunity to discover new music, rock out to Festival favourites and get up close and personal learning new skills in one of the unique and inspiring Performer-led Festival workshops.
The Agnes Blues, Roots & Rock Festival is organised by the Discovery Coast Tourism & Commerce Inc (DCTC), which has a proud record of achievement through its instigation and keen support to benefit the local community and businesses since becoming an Incorporated body in 2000.
The Agnes Blues, Roots & Rock Festival is supported by strategic partner the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland and features on the It’s Live! In Queensland events calendar.
