SURFING The Coldstream festival-goers will party the night away with Sydney-based gypsy-ska rockers Caravãna Sun.

The band, a regular visitor to Yamba's music spots, is enjoying the European summer on a massive tour in support of its new album Aya.

But come October 18, it will head back to the Lower Clarence to provide the party vibes on the closing night.

Local busking heroes Nick and Sam have the honour of opening the festival Main Stage.

Hot off their performances with Mental As Anything and their second appearance at Bluesfest, Maclean's maestros will show festival-goers the future of guitar playing.

Joining these bands is fabulous local talent, including The Whiskey Drop, and the much-loved Sandy Feet.

Festival producer Phil Nicholas discovered Caravãna Sun at a gig in Yamba.

"Straight away I knew they had what it takes to carry a festival crowd, so I'm chuffed to have these guys on board," Mr Nicholas said.

"As for the identity of our headline act, well, that's a closely guarded secret for now and I expect to be able to make an announcement about that later this month," he said.

Festival organiser Live Prawn Productions will officially launch the event on Saturday, August 2 at Leche Café, Yamba, from 4-8pm.
