A new all ages music festival heading to Berry has become a lot more family-friendly with the addition of dedicated children's activities for the Easter Saturday event.
The Lazy Mountain festival, organised by musical taste-makers Yours and Owls, will have a Kids Club area with various craft and face painting, plus a Surfpaints team taking art workshops to upcycle old surfboards (that were destined for landfill).
It will give parents a bit of breathing space in between sets by Tash Sultana, Middle Kids and Gang of Youths at the music festival on April 8.
The food truck contingent has also been announced with Clyde River oysters, smoked meats from Black Iron and Black Sheep Smokers, picnic hampers and locally produced gelato for the kiddies (and big kids at heart).
Other culinary highlights include South Coast Paella, ice-cream from Kiama micro-dairy The Pines, middle eastern delights from Samaras, Turkish gozleme, yum cha and fresh juices.
Beverages available include Hawke's Brewing Co, seltzers, cocktails from Archie Rose Distilling Co, Henry Clive wines, and The Kraken Black Spiced Rum and The VIP Aperol Spritz experience.
Meantime, favourite's from Adelaide Bad//Dreems have joined the musical lineup which also sees Slowly Slowly, South Coast star Tyne James Organ plus Merci, Mercy.
Gates open 12pm, Saturday April 8.
