Craft Beer and Cider Festival Sunshine Coast are proudly setting the stage with a slew of local talent bound to keep you moving and grooving until the sun goes down.

Check out the 2018 lineup below!

Brad Schultz Band

After deciding to leave a corporate career of over 10 years, Brad Schultz is following his dream of writing recording and playing music professionally right here on the sunshine coast. Fools is his debut EP released earlier this year, including songs from his past and present. With catchy melodic moments, seasoned with some melancholic undertones. Fools is the first project of many projects Brad is excited to be embarking on. Watch this space!


Dan Horne

Dan Horne is a foot stompin’  folk infused blues & roots multi instrumentalist. The singer/songwriter began his music career in 2014 performing on the streets, busking and travelling. His “one-man- band” style is a mesmerising blend of foot drums, harmonica and multiple guitars. In 2017 he released his debut album ‘From the roots’. A folk infused, feel good, surf/roots album, independently recorded at paperbark recording co. 
Dan has quickly become a must see act in the live music scene, rigorously touring and playing music festivals across the country, including, Caloundra music festival, Blues on Broadbeach & Agnes Blues and Roots just to name a few .
Same Time

Having spent virtually every weekend of the past seven years developing a reputation as the coast`s hardest working buskers, Tim & Sam are now Plugged in, Amped up and thrilled to present their music as a five piece band.

Sametime are impressing a wider audience with their indie pop and those trademark sibling harmonies, having recently played at the Caloundra Music Festival and getting some love for their new single ‘When You Come Down’ on Triple J breakfast along with landing a slot at the 30th anniversary Byron Bay Blues Festival in 2019.

New Year’s Eve 2016 saw the birth of Flaskas, debuting as support for Blues & Roots legend Ash Grunwald. When high school buddies Chris Flaskas (solo artist) and Duncan Barker (master percussionist) teamed up to perform Flaskas was born. Soon Soul Bassist Jasper Lambert, and guitarist Clint Dove joined, the Flaskas tribe was complete. ‘Flaskas’ are infectious in the way they command the stage; their unique sound is instantly earthy with a distinctly Australian rhythm. Flaskas’ trademark sound is a re-imagining they call ‘Earth Rock’ – an organic high-power blend of alternative world, coastal roots, funk, folk, blues and Indigenous music utilizing various native instruments. Bringing a real live tribal acoustic sound to the doorstep of your senses, sharing a multi-dimensional & cultural experience that will touch and invigorate your soul.
The Lyrical

The Lyrical cut his teeth on the streets busking three nights a week and quickly became a well known music champion to the thousands who stopped to dance and play along over the years. The Lyrical has toured both Australia and internationally as well as releasing a hugely popular self-titled album, “The Lyrical,” to critical acclaim. He has shared the stage and played with the likes of Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals, Angus Stone, Jack Johnson, Michael Franti and Blue King Brown. He’s rocked festivals such as; BIG DAY OUT, Bluesfest, Caloundra Music Festival, Red Deer Festival, Sprung festival, Party in The Paddock, Island Vibes Festival, Grotto Fest, Festival Of The Sun plus many, many more. The Lyrical has also had mega radio and online success hitting No.1 SEVEN TIMES on Triple J’s Unearthed and gained a No.5 spot for Sweden’s “Top 50 Most Streamed Songs” for the year of 2015, beating the likes of Prince and One Direction.
