Discovery Coast Music and Arts Incorporated is a non-profit association based in Agnes Water on the Discovery Coast region of Central Queensland. Our association is committed to supporting local musical arts and culture through the operation of a local niche radio station, developing local partnerships and the promotion of local artists.
Our main activity is the operation of a local niche radio station Aggie 88 FM, which is supported by local volunteers and funded through membership subscriptions and donations from our supporters. We also showcase local artists through the hosting of local music events such as ‘Grassroots’ and assist local businesses to connect with local artists for the expression of culture through music.
Please consider to sponsor our association through an annual membership subscription and/or through the purchase of merchandise from our online store.

Agnes Water & 1770’s local music festival is back in 2022! Come along and enjoy live music all day.
The Grassroots Music Festival is a platform to elevate all the local musicians and musical groups in our community. For years it has been organized and run by a handful of dedicated volunteers, highlighting the best local live bands & musicians.
Grab a cold one, catch up with old friends, meet new locals, bring the kids, eat some food; there’s plenty of space at the Discovery Coast Sports & Rec.
Music starting a 10am; order your tickets online here or buy them at the door.
This year, Aggie 88fm and Discovery Coast Music & Art Incorporated will also be running a hands-on music workshop the following day for up-and-coming local music talent. Due to very limited space, registration will only be taken at the Grassroots festival and for 18+ age only. A workshop aimed at younger attendees will be planned for later in the year.
