The sound of music will be spread around popular venues in the Northern Illawarra on the first Sunday in December.
Punters of the Thirroul Music Festival will be able to wander between the Railway Institute Hall, Papi's, Noel & Gladys and Franks Wild Years to catch an array of country, folk and alternative artists.
Co-organiser Luke Woods of Cheatin' Hearts Records said they wanted to showcase up-and-coming artists and support local venues.
"Despite current capacity restrictions in venues, we were determined to run the festival again before the end of the year, to give the industry the boost it needs and to support our local community - for example, the Thirroul Railway Hall, which has not been able to run events for close to two years now," he said.
"The Illawarra has always been a home for artists, but particularly so in the last few years.
"We can now compete with any 'musical city' in Australia. So we're proud to showcase some of these artists."
Headliners acts include William Crighton, Babitha, Eagle & The Wolf, Caitlin Harnett and the Pony Boys plus Chimers, Steve Bourk, Cody Munro Moore and Kay Proudlove.
A portion of tickets sold will also go towards preserving the historic Railway Hall so it can continue hosting events.
Thirroul Music Festival will run from 12-7pm on Sunday December 5 and is suitable for all ages (providing children are supervised by an adult).
Limited tickets are still available for $45+bf from www.eventbrite.com
