LSF Sunday Sessions (11am-4pm)
LSF Sunday Sessions is all about chilled-out music and laid-back vibes. Think Xavier Rudd and Jack Johnson, but with an original, local flavour and an unbeatable lakeside setting.
Music will be spread from 11am to 4pm across two stages – the main In Season stage, and the Grass Roots stage for up and coming acts.
This free event will feature food and coffee vendors and an over-18s bar offering craft beer, wine and other alcoholic beverages - No BYO.
The park will be a licenced area with a Special Event Alcohol licence over it for the day so bringing your own alcohol is not permitted.
Come and enjoy free live music with great food and beverage offerings. What better way to spend a lazy springtime Sunday?

LSF Sunday Sessions Presented By
In Season Stage
Jack The Fox
This dynamic acoustic folk duo based in Melbourne, comprises school friends Angus Robb (vocals/didgeridoo/harmonica) and Justin Lewis (Guitar/Lap Slide). The pair grew up on the surf coast of South West Victoria and in 2015 began writing and recording music together. The duo is known for its energetic and captivating live performances.
A founding member of hit children’s act Hi-5, Tim has performed thousands of live shows around the world. Since returning to the Hunter in 2013, he has played solo gigs back in Australia, fronted funk-soul band Soultraders and appeared in the most recent series of The Voice.
This one-man band sings, plays guitar and drums at the same time, throwing conventional wisdom out the window and putting his spin on classic songs like Johnny Cash’s ‘Fulsom Prison Blues’, as well as performing his own original music.
Jarrad & Brie Duo
These Newcastle Conservatorium of Music alumni perform a range of classic tunes from artists such as Michael Jackson, Adele, Ed Sheeran, The Doobie Brothers and The Beatles. The combination of Brie’s beautiful vocals and Jarrad’s ability to incorporate a loop pedal and fingerstyle guitar, makes this a must-see act.
Drawing on her country upbringing, Megan experiments with her acoustic guitar, vocals, harmonica and stomp box adapts to any occasion and audience. Her playlist ranges from folk/blues originals to pop songs, easy listening acoustics and classic party favourites.
Grass Roots Stage
Performing professionally since 2017, Jai has supported Thirsty Merc and country singer Kristy James. She is no stranger when it comes to entertaining a crowd with multiple genres and powerhouse vocals.
The Andy Show
Andy strips back classic songs by artists like Guns N Roses, Kings of Leon, Adele and ZZ Top, making them his own with acoustic guitar and vocals. Using a stomp pedal and drum triggers built into his guitar, Andy creates live loops to add depth and originality to his music.
This Central Coast musician’s folk-acoustic, guitar-driven sound is heavily influenced by nature and the ocean. With years of busking and playing local gigs under her belt, she is excited to see her career grow and to perform to new audiences.
A singer-songwriter who also plays covers, Sione incorporates elements of RnB, soul, folk and pop into his performances, always pushing boundaries to hone his craft and improve the audience experience.
Gentle and delicate one moment, powerful and bold the next, Beth has a way of interpreting songs that translates to all age groups. Expect unique takes on the latest indie-pop songs, fresh versions of 70s classics and fluent, clear and impressive vocals.
Farmer’s Wife Distillery
This small-scale distillery just north of Port Stephens produces hand-crafted gin, using traditional and farm-grown native Australian botanicals. Farmer’s Wife gin will be served at LSF Sunday Sessions in cocktails and as a base spirit.
With a farm-based brewery in the State’s Central-West, Pioneer plants, harvests, malts, brews and packages its beer on-site, making it one of only a handful of craft beer brewers to do everything on the farm.
Dirt Candy Wine
A husband-and-wife, small-batch wine producer based in the Hunter Valley, Dirt Candy sources wine from across NSW, with a simple philosophy: to create unique wines to be enjoyed with great food and great friends.
