Forget, for a moment, any visual clichés you have in mind about Cronulla. Next, turn your back to the beach, don a colourful wristband and floppy hat and join the invading hordes at Sounds of the Suburbs, where it will be wiggle-room only in Wilbar Lane on September 27.
Everyone is welcome at the little laneway festival says Aaron Girgis, one of
the co-founders of the music festival that showcases a growing alternative
scene that has been bubbling up in Cronulla over the past decade or so.
"It's everyone's dream to start a big laneway festival isn't it? Three
years ago, we were like, 'Let's do this' and we're so lucky that Sutherland
Shire Council have been so super supportive and been behind the festival from
day one. The community has also embraced us from the start," says Girgis.
