Atop one of the Central Coast’s most spectacular locations, draped in sunshine and surrounded by views of pristine coastline, sits the iconic Norah Head Lighthouse. A place where wonder and absolute delight meet your eyes, painting the perfect backdrop for an intimate gathering of music, food and entertainment.

Thankfully The Lighthouse Folk Festival, one of Australia’s most unique live music events, is back after the unprecedented success of its inaugural year. On Saturday 18th November, the Noraville headland will once again come alive with the one-of-a-kind live music experience, where festival goers can take in the amazing views, sights and sounds, whilst enjoying local pop-up food stalls and a boutique bar offering from the Coast’s very own Six String Brewing Co.

Headlining the 2017 event is Mark Seymour & the Undertow. Internationally regarded as one of Australia's best singer/songwriters, Seymour made his name as the lead singer of Hunters & Collectors and has enjoyed a stellar solo career and now performs with his band The Undertow.

Sharing the stage will be Rockhampton duo, Busby Marou, who scored their first ARIA #1 album this year with their 3rd record Postcards From The Shell House.

Fresh from a national run of sold-out shows, All Our Exes Live in Texas will showcase their four-part indie-folk harmonies that’s made them famous on the festival circuit.

With a sound steeped in Americana, Fraser A. Gorman will charm the Norah Head crowd with his offbeat storytelling - while Karl S. Williams seduces them with soulful blues.

Always proud to showcase local talent, this years festival has managed to lure Long Jetty’s Eagle & The Wolf out of hibernation to perform with fellow local faves Mañana and Little Quirks.

The Lighthouse Folk Festival has cemented itself as is one of the marquee events of the Wyong region’s Lakes Festival, which aims to celebrate the region’s abundance of naturally beautiful spaces, and highlight their integral place in  in the community.

Gates open at 2.30pm.
