RAIN, hail or shine, Coolum can expect golden days this weekend.
The third annual Golden Days Festival kicks off tonight at the Coolum Civic Centre with a world movie premiere featuring Emmy Award-winning director Justin Krumb's new film TransparentSea.
Band of Frequencies, which provides the soundtrack to the film, will perform live.
TransparentSea is an awareness campaign aimed at highlighting coastal environment issues, with particular attention given to whales and dolphins and the waters they inhabit.
Saturday is the main event at the Coolum Sports Complex, with New Zealand's favourite funky band, Fat Freddy's Drop, heading an all-star line-up that includes modern-day storyteller Josh Pyke, Platinum recording artists Something For Kate and Blue King Brown, who Carlos Santana described as "the voice of the street and the band of the future".
Also appearing are Deep Sea Arcade, The Medics, Kid Mac, Electric Empire, Dubmarine, Inland Sea, Stryder and Alys Longmate.
On Sunday the festival becomes more family oriented and moves to beachside Tickle Park in the centre of town.
This free day of festivities will include the Surfrider Eco-Challenge, stand-up paddle board races, belly boarding on wooden boards and skate and BMX competitions and demonstrations.
Everyone is invited to a Guinness World Record attempt at 11.30am for the most surfers riding the same wave.
The free Sunday music line-up includes Band of Frequencies, The Mank, Floating Bridges, Mitch Davis and The Dawn Chorus, Apollo and The Sun and Ziggy Alberts.
