One of Australia's biggest talent shows - the Telstra Road to Tamworth - is coming to Cairns at the end of August.

Taking place on August 29th 2010, the show will see singer-songwriter Felicity Urquhart perform at Festival Cairns on Cairns Esplanade.

The New South Wales indie-folk star's gig is designed to introduce young musicians in the area to established recording artists, as well as other industry figures such as writers, producers and publishers.

As such, any Cairns accommodation guests eager to learn more about the process of making music - plus those who are just keen to watch Urquhart's performance - should enjoy the event.

Along with her show, the date will also see a host of local bands compete to get through to the Boot Camp stage of the competition. Winners of the whole contest will be given a 12-month music mentorship, which includes a free trip to the industry mecca that is Nashville, Tennessee.

Writers, as well as performers, are free to take part in the Telstra Road to Tamworth.

The day's events are expected to kick-off at 14:30 local time and people staying at some of the cheap accommodation Cairns has to offer should plan to arrive ahead of this time to ensure they can get in.
