ORGANISERS of the 5th Corona Uprising Festival of Music, Dance and Lights have tailored the anticipated event to suit the day and cater for a wider range of music genre and audience preferences.
The festival will feature bands and individual performances from around the world.
"The line up of musicians and their respective acts have been tailored by the committee to suit the time of day," organiser Alfred Christoffersen said.
"From a more chilled out day session with Jazz and Blues, and soft rock, to a build up early evening, then later parts of the evening with live DJ's to get the crowd bouncing round is the focus on this year's events."
Mr Christoffersen said in previous years, they focused purely on acts by whole bands. This year, however, they have opted for individual acts and DJs such as Jay Hoad from Australia.
"We are building a music festival with a carnival beach atmosphere. Guests enjoy the warm Pacific ocean waters while relaxing on the grounds of Uprising Beach Resort or on the beach, listening to live music, played off the big stage right there."
He said proceeds from the festival would go towards the Walk On Walk Strong cancer foundation.
"We have supported this charity two years in a row now and this is something we wish to continue into the future.
"Last year, we had a staff member Elina Seniloli pass away because of cancer. We strongly believe in the mandate of the WOWS Kids for Cancer Foundation, and we identify with this very much."
The 5th Festival of Music, Dance and Lights will be held on November 9 from midday at Pacific Harbour.
