Fantastic start to the Festival, despite a problem with a couple of venues and sound a music festival?

Fantastic crowd and atmosphere last night on the main stage of the Airlie Beach Festival of Music at the Whitsunday Sailing Club

I spoke to Sharon Smallwood (just press the audio button) who told me that atmosphere will only build with tonight's acts - and come to a crescendo tomorrow evening!

The Festival has got dragged into an ongoing issue in relation to noise at a couple of venues, not affecting the event itself or the main stage, but makes you wonder how the heck there can be a noise issue at a music festival - where there's never been an issue before
