Jamberoo will come alive with music, dance, busking, markets, yoga, line dancing and more this weekend.

Now in its second year, the Jamberoo Music Festival will take place on Saturday, July 20.

The boutique music festival will feature Illawarra performers, and musicians from throughout Australia.

East Corrimal resident Mem Davis attended the inaugural Jamberoo festival last year as a punter, and said it offered a unique feel.

"I loved it - really good vibes," she said.

"It had a really relaxed sort of vibe, but the calibre of artists was sensational."

This year, the 36-year-old will perform at the festival as part of The Mem Davis Collective.

The former Sydney resident said the group formed about a year ago, with past gigs including this year's Illawarra Folk Festival.

"It's folk with a touch of country-pop," the vocalist/guitarist said of their music.

Other performers will include Little Quirks, Grizzlee Train, Dear Violet, Gabadoo and The Ruby Tuesdays.

Allowrie Street will be filled with activities, including the Market Place with food stalls at Reid Park from 10am; a busking competition and kids' interactive play area.

Attendees can even get their boots on, with a workshop from award-winning international line dancer, Kiama-born Simon Ward.

The festival encompasses four main music venues: Club Jamberoo (Jamberoo Bowling Club); Jamberoo School of Arts Hall; Jamberoo Youth Hall and Jamberoo Uniting Church.

Tickets are available here.

Limited tickets will also be released on festival day.
