HinterWonderLand party gets cracking

AN array of local talent is set to perform at the Glasshouse Country Street Party HinterWonderLand in November.

Excitement is in the air as the fifth event returns to the streets of Beerwah with a stellar line-up of local talent and crafty folk. Dine on the streets and catch up with old mates and family like you did back in 2019 and get set to be entertained. 

The one day event line-up was launched in August with some incredible acts, but the best part is, the entire program is ready to roll and features Khaita Tibetan Dancers, Circus workshops from returning favourites Skyfall Entertainment, solo artist acts, such as incredible singer songwriters Kelly Cork and Richo Richardson and everybody’s favourite entertainer Sam Skllz FJ.

“There’s such an incredible amount of creative activity happening in the Glasshouse Country area, from musicians to visual artists, dancers and performers, they’re everywhere and we’re excited to showcase some of the many,” Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce president Jenny Broderick said.

Some of the local music ensembles announced in the line-up include MoSwagger, Aussie Boogaloo Duo, Tom Richter & Shelby Johnson and Tobias, who recently released a new music video ‘Howling at the Moon’. 

As well as a Christmas Light Show the community will be entertained with roving street performers, hoola-hoop folks and the awesome team from United Pro Wrestling. There are four performance stage areas at the event: HinterWonderLand stage, opposite Vianta Espresso and Wine Bar; Glasshouse Country stage at The Local Beerwah; StART stage at the bus stop in Simpson Street where school performances will be held; and the zone everyone will want to get in, Collision Zone, down in the Post Office car park. 

Matt Gilbson from Glasshouse Country Christian College will be hosting Collision Youth Lounge with the popular Gladiator challenge, Nintendo games and a Chill Space for after you’ve been honing your Laser Assault skills. “We’re excited to once again be part of this year’s Street Party, hosting the Youth Lounge where teenagers can come play Nintendo switches, try their best to beat us at UNO flip or just chill on our couches and recharge their phone in our charging station,” Matt said.

At 7pm the major prize will be drawn followed by Skyfall’s Lighting Spectacular at HinterWonderLand stage. The end of the night will see The Wet Whistles take you on a journey from beautiful harmonies to thigh slappin’ singalong fun. Prepare to have your Rock n Roll Socks knocked off with Reece Mastin at 9pm.
