Now in it's third year, the Belmore Hotel's BandAid at the Bellie mini music festival will be held at the hotel on Saturday 26 May to raise money for Camp Quality.
The festival was first held in 2016 after the hotel's operator and staff came up with a way to showcase live music, while also supporting a worthwhile charity.
"We came up with Bandaid at the Bellie because we love live music and thought we could put it together to help Camp Quality raise money and support families going through tough times dealing with childhood cancer," hotel operator Michael Ferguson said.

"We chose Camp Quality with the aim of bringing a smile to the face of a child that hasn't had the chance of a normal life, and to help their family's give them some enjoyment to take their mind from what they are going through."
Over the past two years, the event has showcased a mix of local bands and solo artists willing to give up their time to help raise money for the cause.

"These are good people that are giving up their time to put on a show. Some are even returning for their 3rd year," Michael said.
"The money will be raised through door takings, a sausage sizzle, merchandise, 100 club draws and general donations throughout the event. I don't know of any other charity-based mini festival like this, in or around our area and everyone who comes always comments on what a great time they have had."
The line up for this year includes:
Sun Hill Drive
The event begins at 2pm on Saturday, 26 May, with a $10 cover charge after 9pm - all proceeds from the day go to Camp Quality.
