Hundreds attend festival

HUNDREDS of people attended a music festival at Tannum Sands on Saturday afternoon and evening.

Millennium Esplanade came alive with the Beach Arts Music (BAM) festival, with art, food stalls and music at one of the region’s best outdoor venues.

BAM is an initiative of the Boyne Tannum Arts, Business and Community (BTABC) Association and local band Whyte Zebra.

Andy Stanhope of Whyte Zebra said BAM was becoming popular, with attendance and awareness growing every month.

“The gig kicks off at 4pm every month with music, arts and entertainment, including markets and food stalls,” he said.

BAM is a free community event held on the first Saturday of the month from 4pm till 8pm at the Tannum Sands Millennium Esplanade. It’s a great place to relax with the family.

Gladstone local Peter Collins said it was a great way to spend a couple of hours with the family.

“The kids just love to play around on the grass with the other kids while we rest,” he said.

The BAM festival organisers are on the lookout for more artists, performers and stall holders.
