Beachfest is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the surf lifesaving movement and increase awareness of what we are all about and that’s saving lives, creating great Australians and building better communities. Surf Life Saving NSW relies heavily on the generosity and support from the community to continue to provide the vital service of keeping our beaches safe and ensuring that NSW beaches are patrolled by well trained and equipped Surf Life Saving volunteers. Thanks to Beachfest for thinking of Surf Life Saving NSW to be the official event beneficiary.”
Along with live performances from the bands all day there will also be a Surf Lifesaving Parade by the Bondi Life Savers which will include a March Past, Beach Flag event and Board Race/Demonstrations. There will also be a Miss Beachfest Competition, Surfing and Skating Exhibitions plus market and food stalls on location for the duration of the event.
The Beach Boys
One of the most influential and enduring bands in pop history, The Beach Boys are the Sounds of Summer with album sales of over 100 million, 32 American Platinum and Gold awards, an induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame and a Lifetime Achievement Grammy award. Captained by Mike Love, The Beach Boys music defines youth and fun fun fun, evoking places where life is renewed through sun drenched days in the surf and glorious nights in the sand.
Their catalogue spans five decades and has produced a swell of more than 50 timeless hits including California Girls, Good Vibrations, Surfin’ USA, Sloop John B, God Only Knows, Sail On Sailor, Kokomo, Surfer Girl, Help Me Rhonda, Barbara Ann, Wouldn’t It Be Nice, Surfin’ Safari, I Can Hear Music, The Warmth of the Sun, Little Deuce Coupe, I Get Around, Heroes and Villains plus so much more.
The Beach Boys are creators of lush singles described as "teenage symphonies to God." The band produced songs with an ultra-smooth blend of guitars and vocal harmonies, creating a signature California pop sound that is as recognizable as any band in rock history.

The Beach Boys will head line the inaugural Bondi Beachfest with support from the following Australian Artists: The Whitlams: Kim Churchill: Busby Marou: Sahara Beck:
The Whitlams won ‘Best Group’ at the 1998 ARIA Awards, as well as ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Best Independent Release’ for their third album “Eternal Nightcap”. In 2011 this album was placed 27th on the ABC’s “My Favourite Album” poll, and more recently was voted no. 17 in “JJJ’s Hottest Australian Albums of All Time”.
Local Queensland boys Busby Marou, originally from Rockhampton, will support show with their melodic guitar riffs and meaningful lyrics. The Australian newspaper describes them perfectly - "The overwhelming feeling that emanates from BUSBY MAROU is joy. The voices and close harmonies are as clear as Queensland sunshine, and the acoustic guitar playing of both men is both accomplished and expressive”.
He is the name on everyone’s sultry lips and with good reason. Kim Churchill, the surfy dude from New South Wales, is four albums deep and hundreds of shows down and has truly found his signature sound with his latest release Silence / Win. With fingertip calluses as coarse as thimbles and those signature vocals as crisp as an autumn dawn, these unmistakable talents roll together with expert composition and lyrical wisdom to form one tantalising combination.
Call it the restlessness of youth, but Brisbane artist SAHARA BECK refuses to sit still. Over the past year she has released a critically respected EP, toured and played shows non-stop, had her music featured online and on television, collaborated with numerous artists, written countless new songs and released another EP - BLOOM. “Given what Sahara Beck has already achieved in her short career, she’s a rising star.
