At Coalescence we believe that variety is the spice of life: Every year we try to balance the musical selections to include something for everyone. And within that wide selection, we pour hours and hours into making sure the programming flows smoothly from one act to the next and the music always suits the moment, no matter the time, day or night.
It's no mean feat, but we're committed to eclecticism as a way of drawing in all different types of people to learn and celebrate and explore and connect together.

Every year we're blown away by the mounting volume of talent we have here in the Far North and, alongside our epic local line-up, we try to throw a few out-of-towners into the mix. This can be a bit tricky, especially considering that we're trying to have a positive ecological impact across the totality of the event. So we limit our fly-ins to keep our carbon emissions lower, and preference those closer to us over those who live across the country or internationally. Maybe once we've got enough people planting trees, we can consider expanding our "import" line-up but, in the meantime, FNQ is chockers with incredible musos anyway!
Here's a few of the artists we've featured in the past...
