2018 Cronulla Spring Festival Busking in Support of Kookaburra Kids


The 2018 Cronulla Spring Festival is not to be missed this year with old time favourites and plenty of new additions coming to Cronulla Mall and Cronulla’s Monro Park on Saturday and Sunday 8 – 9 September.

The beachside community festival is the Sutherland Shire’s biggest annual community event and will celebrate the start of spring with a memorable day out for friends and family alike.

Children are a strong focus of the community event and last year’s introduced kids zone will be even bigger this year. Amongst others face painting, a pet zoo, slides and lots more will be on offer for kids of all ages.

Children will also be the focus of one of the festival’s key additions, when Busk for a Cure artists will be performing live music acts across the festival for a good cause with 100% of the donations going to the Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation.

Kookaburra Kids offer a range of programs specifically developed to support children living in families affected by mental illness and it is the charity of choice of Cronulla Spring Festival organiser ATOMIK PRODUCTIONS.

“We have been involved with cause-related and community events for a long time and we love delivering these types of events for the positive impact they have. So to include a charity partner into the Cronulla Spring Festival was an obvious choice for us, Thomas Staunton, CEO of ATOMIK PRODUCTIONS said.

“At ATOMIK, we strongly believe in giving back and creating and delivering events that support an important cause, create a strong sense of community and engage the community to raise funds and grow awareness. Including initiatives like Busk for a Cure and identifying an organisation like Kookaburra Kids make delivering the Cronulla Spring Festival extra special for us.”

“We are very excited to be ATOMIK’s charity of choice for the 2018 Cronulla Spring Festival and can’t wait to get amongst it over the weekend,” Tracie Junghans, Kookaburra Kids Marketing and Fundraising Manager, said.

“We are looking forward to be part of the 2018 Cronulla Spring Festival with our artists. It’s great to see the festival wanting to give back to the community and getting us involved.

“Our vision is to use the power of music to support different charitable organisations. Over the past few months we have been working to collaborate with a variety of community events to raise funds and awareness for different causes and Kookaburra Kids is a great one to support,” Helmut Uhlmann, founder of Busk for A Cure said.

Artists will be performing at the Monro stage on Saturday and Sunday between 10am-4pm and two of the talented Busk for a Cure artists will be performing the Pavilion Main Stage over the weekend. Cash donations can be made directly to the artists or online here: https://www.mycause.com.au/page/184898/busk-for-australian-kookaburra-kids-foundation

The festival will also feature returning favourites and for the first year yet new features and interactive experiences will be on site to enjoy. Over 120 artisan stalls to shop, live music throughout and a variety of food trucks with local and international specialties as well as a licenced bar will be on offer.
