We’ll also be launching our fantastic ‘Live & Local’ music festival, the largest community music festival Shellharbour has ever produced. This free one-day event on Saturday 22 June will bring together local musicians to create a vibrant community atmosphere across the village's venues, restaurants, cafes and bars. This will be the first of many new initiatives launched in the region.

The festival will feature:
•    Over 30 musicians spread across 15 venues - folk, rock, roots, classical, DJs and hip. Festival performers include: Kay Proudlove, Nick Rheinberger, Declan Kelly, Dave Overton, Dear Violent and many more.
•    The 160th celebrations will also include walking tours, museum exhibition, community public art exhibition, workshops and much more between 14 and 22 June.
