ENDLESS SUMMER FESTIVAL…food, music & entertainment for all!

The first annual Endless Summer Festival is a celebration of food, music and the arts….running from 12 noon until 9.00pm across the three days between Christmas and New Year.

Set to run from December 27-29 the hot new Endless Summer Festival features a fresh approach to festival food and entertainment, based in the beautiful surrounds of Gunnamatta Park (beside the bay!) in Cronulla.


An amazing mix of award winning Australian musicians will come together for the Endless Summer Festival, ensuring the best summer vibes….all for FREE!
Each day there will be live music from midday until 9pm in the evening, with cutting edge acts pumping out tunes in the Tradies Amphitheatre.

The sound of summer will hit the inaugural Endless Summer Festival with an amazing free music line-up including Touch Sensitive, Dustin Tebbutt, Amy Meredith, The Preatures, Bluejuice, Asta, Strangers, Shinobi, Marlin Zando, Skryptcha and I am Apollo, with organisers Southside Events also bringing a visual sensory experience in the way of large scale live art displays throughout the three day festival.


A vibrant line-up of local artistic talent will see well known Shire based artists including Kuulof, Mulga, Those Jazz Cats, Craig Hemstead, Corbin Nash, G’Lato, Nathan Johnston, Sam Kane, Mark Lindsell, Pippa Marie, Ouch! and more painting live in front of the public on eight specially constructed large scale pyramids that will be dotted around the park. See below for example images of the artists’ work.


All catering will be managed by the renowned team at The Old Library in Cronulla, part of the Southside Events stable, who will serve rustic Italian fare (and matching wine partner Lisa McGuigan Wines and Asahi beer) that will be available at the Endless Summer Festival.

Hunger pains will be cured by food will be prepared by leading local chefs whilst your thirst can be quenched at any of the bars (over 10 bars in the venue) as the perfect accompaniment to any meal. There is an endless amount of food options that beat the normal festival grub by a mile.

The Old Library favourites – Mario Kalpou (Festival founder) and executive Chef David Magill present you signature dishes with irresistible Italian flare such as arancini, iconic zucchini flowers and crispy fresh calamari or tuck into some sensational summer salads and relish in a ricotta cannoli.

Lisa McGuigan Wines – with her modern take on winemaking across varieties and regions, Lisa makes this wine handcrafted, hand sold and made to be shared with friends. There could not be a more perfect occasion.
