EARTH FESTIVAL: Manifest heads to Cherrabah this weekend.

CHERRABAH Resort will come alive this weekend with hundreds of music fans.

The destination is Manifest, a festival of vine-ripened beats with a dash of springtime, served on a bed of culinary and visual delights.

This is the festival's second visit to the Southern Downs, after its first at Gordon Country, Goomburra in 2014.

Event organiser Renal Inan said Manifest had found its new home in the country resort.

"Manifest is giving the people of Warwick and the whole region something new and a little bit outside the box," said Mr Inan.

"This time around we'll be presenting world-class acts such as Blockhead (US), Ed Solo (UK), Astronomy Class (Australia) and Brisbane's very own home-grown talent, Tom Thumb," he said.

"As well as that we'll be presenting magicians, comedians, contortionists, street artists, dancers, live bands, solo acts, stilt walkers, puppeteers and performances from all walks of life.

"You'll also want to see Redstar's Circus production - a 45-minute theatre production with aerial hoops and silks, fire performers, acrobats and dance, that coincides with a Future Fancy Dress Party."

Mr Inan said the food and market area was a must-see.

"Our biggest ever market area will form the heart of the festival site," he said.

"We have sourced the finest locally owned and operated vendors to ensure there will be plenty to keep you busy in between the tunes, plus comfy space to chill and indulge.

"Make sure you take a trip around the gourmet globe with our huge range of scrumptious eats.

"You'll be able to sample delicious delights from the coast of Mexico, cosmopolitan Paris, hawker markets in Ho Chi Minh and everything in between."

For every ticket purchased this year, Manifest is donating a seedling to help fund the development of a Tranquility Garden to use in future years.

"It is everyone's responsibility to be conscious of the impact we have on the environment," Mr Inan said.
