TROPICAL BLOOM FESTIVAL 28-30 July 2017
A CELEBRATION OF DIVERSITY
Situated on bank of the spectacular Hedlow creek, 20 kms west of Yeppoon and overlooking stunning wetlands that are home to an abundance of bird species...Tropical Bloom is a celebration of art, culture and community. These three aspects shape the foundation of the festival. The art comes in more visual and aural forms than you can imagine. The culture we construct is a blend of indigenous, tribal, traditional and new age values and ideals. Community is the glue that bonds it all together. Caring for ourselves, each other and the environment is the central credence for creating and sustaining the vibe that inspires us to keep on dancing.
There's more art in Noosa this week than you can poke a bag full of sticks at so when you're done, come and get down with us on the last day of the 2017 NOOSA ALIVE FESTIVAL at Cafe Le Monde, Sunday 30th July, 4:30-6:30pm.
NOOSA has long known the best way to protect the overall environment is to safeguard the water quality of the Noosa River and lakes system.
And there have been few better ways to raise public awareness on preserving the natural flows than the Noosa Festival of Water which will be showcased again at Lake Macdonald on Sunday 25th June.
"Today the festival has evolved to become an annual showcase of our region's ecological attributes with a primary aim of improving community awareness of how each of us can play a part protecting and preserving our environment in our day to day lives,” she said. Festival coordinator Debbie Seal of the Mary River Catchment Coordination Committee

Chef Surinder creates unique contemporary cuisine that draws from eclectic inspirations he derived in India, Europe and Australia.
He uses the ancient 5000 year old Ayurvedic philosophy to prepare his food… low in salt, sugar, slow cooked without any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. He blends in the goodness of locally grown chillies, lettuce, roselle, lime, lemons, coriander, eggplant and other produce… straight from his own and friends’ gardens.
Surinder’s cooking is rustic and full of flavour. His meals are healthy, wholesome, well balanced and full of the tastes inherent in the Punjabi recipes passed down through generations in India.
Now that's why we love it!! Kayt & Steph are bringing the duo back to Noosa Namaste Thursday 27 April.
The 2017 Australian Body Art Festival is set to take it's new home, Cooroy by storm on the 8 and 9 April!
The Australian Body Art Festival - the nation's premier body art event - is a colourful and creative experience for all ages. Held in Noosa hinterland town of Cooroy, the event is nothing short of extraordinary. For members of the public, it’s an event like nothing ever seen before. Boundaries are pushed as the human canvases are transformed into works of art before the crowd.
And that's why we Love It!!
Come and join The Moonsets for this year's Saturday Soiree. Meet the Artists, mingle with their exquisite canvasses and drink from the cup of creation!!
There will be food. There will be wine.

"Art should disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed...

"Kayt and Steph have a knack of filling the air with sweet melodies".
Seriously, what a lovely thing to say! Thanks Cafe Le Monde, we think you're sweet too 🙂 The Moonsets duo will be taking care of your Thursday night aural deliciousness!
Thanks very much Jai Bevan for this great shot of us from last year with our biggest fan! We're glad we're The Moonsets now for so many reasons. Somewhere between a memory and a dream The Flumes is now a name on old gig posters and dusty CD racks. Something much loved and tinkered with laid to rest. Moving on and letting go is a theme we return to again and again in song and we feel it's ripe for celebration.
The time of The Flumes has passed. Now is the time of The Moonsets.
Check out Jai's tunes, he's a great young songwriter with lots of soul
Big Love to All Strings Attached and all of the groovers who ventured out to Solbar Friday night for a wild night of music, and cheers to Rob Sharkey for another stellar live shot. We're heading back into the studio to polish off the new tunes to be released very soon, so next chance to catch us live is Cafe Le Monde Sunday 2 April 🙂
Stoked to be on a bill again with these crazy cats!!
"With our Debut Full Length Album release just around the corner, we want to tantalise your musical tastebuds with a sneaky showcase of songs from...Incantations for Strange Folk...Joining us are The Moonsets and The Quakers so be prepared for a musical journey through haunting dance grooves, progressive rock and all out debauchery of the gypsy punk flavour".
It's gonna be a solid and expansive night of glorious music hosted by Solbar all for five bucks! Tough to resist.

Since 2009 we've worked with ShellyM photography. In our opinion one of the best live photographers working on the Sunshine Coast, she's a great friend and a serial photographer with a sharp eye.
Woodford Folk Festival
Firstly thankyou to everyone who came to a show, bought a CD, all the venues, festival organisers and bookers for your unswerving support over the years. We wouldn’t be here without you and are looking forward to continuing the journey with you all.
For all you long term The Flumes fans who are wondering why we would do such a thing!? Please understand we haven’t done this lightly. We are deeply attached to our name but the confusion caused by The Flumes, Flume and The Fumes has become annoying to the point of unbearable. In fact it’s got our goat and made a curry but as they say “A change is as good as a holiday” and we’re moving on.
Thank you for bearing with us while we go through this transition and please be assured that it’s a name change only and we’ll still be making the music you’ve come to know and love since 2008. We’re in it for a long time as well as a good time and are treating this as part of the natural evolution of the band.
We’ve been cooking up some new tunes in our Solar Powered studio and looking forward to sharing them with you in the New Year.
Until then…Much Love
Kayt & Steph
