Four-letter fiasco shocks festival

ROCK band Bluejuice is unlikely to be invited back to perform at future Caloundra Music Festivals after shocking the family-oriented crowd with an expletive-laden performance on Sunday.

The five-piece band's lead singer Jake Stone was fined $100 by police for using offensive language when he dropped the "c-bomb" and the "f-bomb" several times.

He also angered festival officials when he attempted to climb the side of the stage and refused to come down when asked by security.

Festival organiser Richie Eyles said it was inappropriate behaviour considering the festival was promoted as family friendly.

"There's a time and a place for everything but the Caloundra Music Festival is not the place to be dropping the c-bomb," Mr Eyles said. "I think they had a poor exercise in judgment on the day.

"Any band that behaves like that will not be welcomed back."

Potty-mouthed singers aside, Mr Eyles said he couldn't have been happier with how the festival panned out.

Despite a wet start on Saturday, punters were treated to three near perfect days of sun.

"The planets just aligned and everything turned out perfectly," he said. Last year the torrential rain kept ticket sales down but once Saturday morning's storms cleared, more than 20,000 music lovers enjoyed the festivities.

The air was electric on Sunday night as Iva Davies and Icehouse took to the stage, kicking off their set with hits Can't Help Myself, Electric Blue and Hey Little Girl.

The iconic Aussie band wrapped up the festival action on the main stage, after a day that saw performances by Bluejuice, Tower of Power, Thirsty Merc and Tex Perkins and the Dark Horses.

Nicky Bomba and the CMF All Stars wrapped up the festival on the Spirit Stage and kept the punters dancing late, with Mayor Bob Abbot joining the boys on stage for a jam.
