The Long Sunset


The beautiful Scenic Rim will light up again on the last weekend in April, with music and camping festival The Long Sunset returning to the region for its second year as part of  Queensland Music Trails.

A must-visit for indie music fans, the wanderlust music and camping festival is set in the lush surrounds of Elysian Fields, Canungra (home of the Mununjali, Wangerriburra and Ugurapul people), just half an hour's drive from the Gold Coast and an hour's drive from Brisbane.

The Long Sunset

This year's concert will feature a carefully curated line-up of the nation's best live acts, headlined by Lime Cordiale. Joining them will be R&B soul collective Winston Surfshirt, who will showcase material from their third studio album Panna Cotta after a day of sets from Hatchie, Sycco, Tia Gostelow  and more.


The Long Sunset

Rounding the out the main stage line-up is Peach Fur, bella amor, Baby Cool and Luke Brazier for an afternoon of delight as the sun slowly starts to set in the valley.

The Long Sunset

The one day event is the capstone of Queensland Music Trails' Scenic Rim Trail, which guides visitors on a musical expedition around the finest nooks of South East Queensland. Despite only being in its second year, The Long Sunset has already captured audiences with its Insta-worthy hillside sunsets, world-class live performances and a pristine patch of grass in campers' wonderland.

The Long Sunset

This year, campers will be able to stay for up to 3 nights and all attendees will be able to take advantage of the long weekend, to stay and explore The Scenic Rim. Take a hike on any of the local foot trails through lush rainforests or experience the local food and wine scene at Tamborine Mountain, a picturesque 25 minute drive away.

The Long Sunset

While The Long Sunset provides camping and glamping options, there are also plenty of boutique accommodation options nearby. Trail-goers are invited to come the night before for the Friday night campfire sessions with Laura Frank, Seasoning and The Inadequates kicking off the long weekend of camping and chilling with good mates.

For day trippers there will be parking on site at Elysian Fields but the best option is to sit back and relax on one of the dedicated bus services operating directly from Brisbane CBD, Logan, Upper Mount Gravatt, Nerang and Ipswich. Head to Mt Gravatt Coach & travel to book your seat now!
