Entertainment zone

Loretta Hart turned 50 last year and became increasingly aware that she have much to say and share but was entering the invisible zone within society. She chooses to not only elevate her own voice but those of women and non-binary people who are ready to be heard.


She loves to support people to make positive change in their lives and through her program on community radio at 94.7 The Pulse, she’s found the perfect vehicle. Loretta is like a human piece of lego, she builds community wherever she goes. This is evident in her role as 94.7 The Pulse Community Engagement and Sponsorship

Barbarella and the Misfits are a high energy trio performing a mix of covers and original songs from their EP ‘Still a dreamer.' They have an Indi pop vibe, featuring Barbara’s lilting vocals, Tim’s rocking guitar and Mitch’s pulsating percussion.


Beautiful melodies and lyrics to warm the heart and a funky beat to get the hips swinging.  Barbarella and the Misfits are home grown on the Surf Coast. They’ll be a whole ton of fun and not to be missed at the festival.
