Freedom Music Festival is so much more than a typical music event! It offers a clean, safe, substance-free, family-oriented atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. Whether you’re looking to relax, plan a family escape, or immerse yourself in the latest tracks from Australia’s best gospel artists, Freedom Music Festival has something for everyone.

The festival is now celebrating its fifth year and will take place from November 3-5 at Dayspring Farm in Calico Creek, Queensland. Artists from all across Australia will gather together to showcase their original music.

Mission for the Gospel

Sam Hornshaw is a musician with a heart and a mission for the gospel, and will be one of the performers at the upcoming Freedom Music Festival. He recently joined us on Rise and Shine to talk about what we can expect this year.

‘We want to reach all different types of people with the good news of Jesus and with great local music,’ says Sam. ‘But it’s very different to what you’d expect at a church. We’re not necessarily playing the same type of music. We’re asking bands to come and play their own stuff.’

Sam has a deep passion for music and has been playing since he was a young child. He started officially releasing his own songs about five years ago, and actually debuted his first EP at the Freedom Music Festival.

Focus on Families

Sam believes what makes the festival different to anything else is the focus on families. ‘That’s something that we have a really big heart for,’ he says. ‘We believe that’s something very close to God’s heart. There are kids everywhere. There are people of all different generations.’

The main goal for the festival as far as the music goes is to find people who have a heart for the gospel and a heart for Jesus. ‘The motivation for us is to worship Jesus and to see people reached with the gospel.’
