Canungra will be home to the newest boutique camping and music event when The Long Sunset takes place on Saturday 12 February 2022 at Elysian Fields.

Angus and Julia Stone, Ball Park Music, Babe Rainbow and Hatchie lead the lineup the inaugural event.

The Long Sunset is a brand new experience, from Queensland Music Trails.

Australian indie-folk duo Angus & Julia Stone will headline the event, performing together in Queensland for the first time since their sold-out performance in Brisbane back in 2018. 

The brother-sister duo’s performance at The Long Sunset will also mark the first opportunity for Queenslanders to experience the band’s latest record, ‘Life Is Strange’, live and in person.

“It’s been a really long time since Angus and I have had the chance to make our way up to Queensland to perform together,” said Julia Stone. 

“It’s a truly beautiful part of the world.  We can’t wait to head north again and perform as the sun sets and the night comes alive.  It’s going to be electric.”

“The Scenic Rim, like much of Australia, has felt the full weight of the pandemic over the past 18 months” said Scenic Rim Mayor, Cr Greg Christensen. 

“From the generational family businesses scattered throughout the region to the brewers, the winemakers, the producers, accommodation providers and the artists who live all across this amazing part of the world, they’ve been doing it tough. But there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and it looks a lot like a Long Sunset.”

“Bringing world-class music to stunning places in regional Queensland is our passion because it’s one of the best ways to immerse visitors in what Queensland is all about,” said QMF CEO Joel Edmondson. 

The event is predicted to sell out early.
