Feast of arts feature at three-day festival

GOOMBURRA'S Gordon Country will play host to a feast of the arts this weekend, with a range of performers showing off their talents in the three-day music event Manifest.

Featuring bands and DJs across three stages, Manifest attracts people from all walks of life.

Festival organiser Renan Inal said this weekend would be the festival's fourth event.

"Manifest has a focus on the greater arts with lots of performers including circus and theatre," he said.

"Manifest Queensland was created by a range of different people from event managers to performers - all come together to put on this event."

The event was the subject of some controversy when it was held at Bestbrook in 2011, when council tried to place noise restrictions on it.

Mr Inal said Manifest would include a silent disco this time around.

"It's a community festival adapted to its environment - Gordon Country is a really beautiful venue," he said.

"Manifest helps promote a platform for people to share their music - it doesn't just cater to one niche."

The festival kicks off at 3pm today, with tickets available on the door.
