EastLink sponsors The Waterfront Festival

The Waterfront Festival will be held at Frankston Foreshore, on 19-20 February 2022.

With Victoria returning to a sense of normality following the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, EastLink’s sponsorship is helping The Waterfront Festival reconnect with the community.

Festivals and community events were particularly impacted during the stop-start lockdowns closures of 2020 and 2021. While some festivals were able to continue online, many were cancelled completely.

The Waterfront Festival was last held in 2020.

EastLink’s sponsorship funding will allow The Waterfront Festival 2022 to include “The Dreaming Space”, which will be a free family entertainment attraction within the Festival.

As part of The Waterfront Festival, The Dreaming Space will be a place where you can escape to a world full of wonder, curiosity and surprise! With magic shows, circus acts and giant bubble workshops, be sure to bring the family down and stick around for the duo fire show at 7.45pm Saturday evening 19 February.

In addition to the sponsorship funding, EastLink is providing marketing support to The Waterfront Festival, including billboards on EastLink and emails to EastLink account holders.

EastLink corporate affairs manager Doug Spencer-Roy said, “EastLink is privileged to be able to help The Waterfront Festival return in 2022, bigger than ever before.”

Frankston City Council Manager Arts & Culture Tammy Ryan said, “ We are thrilled to be presenting an exciting program including an array of live music, featuring multi-award winning music sensation Sneaky Sound System, along with the much loved fireworks display at 9.45pm Saturday. After the last two years we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the festival.”
