THE aroma of market food matched with the dulcet tones of acoustic performers at Tannum Sands' monthly Beach Arts Music festival delivered everything Saturday afternoons are made of.

With children dancing on the green and families gathered on their rugs, the atmosphere of BAM once again attracted crowds in large numbers.

Kamal Datt, spotted sitting with his family, said the monthly markets were a great opportunity to spend time with the family.

"It is just a very relaxing afternoon," he said.

"There's always something happening, you always bump into someone you know.

"We love just being able to enjoy some quiet family time."

Rian Tait agreed the attraction of BAM was the atmosphere.

"Live music is what sets BAM apart from most other markets," she said.

"It's just gives the place a whole different vibe."
