The Woolgoolga Curryfest is returning - bigger and better than ever before.

The Curryfest takes place on Easter Monday this year (April 13).

And the event is shaping up to be a real delight for all the senses.

Some of the entertainment at the Easter Monday festival includes Boom, Yellow Monday and Bhangra Nights.

Boom is a vibrant and multi-talented percussion group based in Bellingen, NSW. Their rootsy sound is driven by drums djembes, congas, dun-dun, darrabuka, bass and toms. Melodic and harmonic spice is sprinkled in with bamboo flutes, vocals, guitar and Marimba.

Boom music is the product of a creative melting pot, a combination of original songs and grooves, ancient rhythms, inspired improvisations and funky flute rhymes.

Yellow Monday is a three-piece group with compositions with a gypsy and Arabic feel.

The group is made up of Zia is a master tabla player from Bangladesh, Ozkan is a virtuoso baglama player from Turkey, and the founder of the group, Andy, who plays guitar and cittern.

Bhangranights is about a group of people who are passionate about the music. All over the world Indian artists, DJs and producers have worked tirelessly to promote Bhangra. With the dedication and continuous hard work, they strive to be the first professional group who make people in UK, USA, Canada and India realise that Australia has got some great home-grown talent.
