Spend Father’s Day afternoon in a magical setting by the Scarborough seaside listening to a superb program of world class music from outstanding artists. After a hugely successful debut, Scarborough Sounds is back in 2016, bringing a bolstered program of amazing musical talent. Best of all, the event is free to attend.

Fresh from their acclaimed Woodford Folk Festival 2015 shows, the Hot Potato Band has fast become one of the most celebrated performing bands in Australia. The Scarborough Sounds stage will also play host to Thomas Armstrong-Robley & Suited to You, and Parasol ft. Franky Smart.
