A number of local shops and cafes across Tweed will be transformed into music venues when the Live and Local micro music festival comes to the region next April.
Micro music festivals have been held by the State Government in Western Sydney, Parramatta, Camden and Wollondilly and, after the successful response from those, the Government has offered to bring the event to other parts of New South Wales.
NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro described the events as a fantastic way of growing live music in regional areas of the state.

Local artists – from school bands to professionals – will be given the opportunity to perform at next year’s event in Tweed which will coincide with the opening of the new Kingscliff park.
