MULLUM Music Festival's four-day program kicks off tonight in spectacular style with a host of world-class performances - and the announcement of the 2012 Youth Mentorship Program winners.

"It's all about big hair and an even bigger sound, leading opening night revellers through the hard hitting sounds of northern soul, jump blues, doo-wop, ska and gospel with influences ranging from Etta James and Tina Turner to Prince and Salt n' Pepa," organiser Glenn Wright said.

MC Mandy Nolan will host the gala opening party in what she describes as a format resembling the ABC's former cabaret comedy show, The Big Gig.

Funky sounds

"Two stages, quick knockout performances, followed by the funkiest big band in the land," she said.

"It's the perfect format - a taste of what the festival has to offer."

This weekend's musical line-up features back-to-back performances from Jamaican, Chilean, Irish, American, Australian and West African artists, to name a few.

Mae Wilde's mystery gigs, circus acts, children's concerts and a performance from the Federal Park Party Busking Competition winner round out the jam-packed program.

A festival highlight will be Sunday morning's New Orleans-style street parade, which winds its way from Heritage Park to the Civic

Hall.
