RUM YUM: The 20 rum-inspired dishes on menu at festival

THE beat of music and smooth liquor won't be the only things luring people from across Australia to Bundaberg tomorrow.

The Spirit of Bundaberg Festival will also see rum lovers flock to taste more than 20 rum-inspired foods.

Whether it's pizzas or burgers with rum sauce or pork ribs with a rum glaze, there will be a taste for everyone.

Bundaberg Rum senior brand manager Duncan Littler said the Bundaberg region had a fantastic food and drink culture.

"We're excited that the Spirit of Bundaberg Festival provides the opportunity for some of the best foodies from all over the region to get creative, and combine the stunning produce Bundaberg has to offer with Australia's favourite rum, Bundaberg Rum," he said.

"There's something for everyone at the festival from Bundaberg Rum Red-marinated jerky to 12-hour slow and low smoked pulled pork burgers with a special Bundaberg Rum sauce and, of course, Bundaberg Royal Liqueur salted caramel gelato for dessert."

Along with food and drinks, the festival will feature all-local entertainment.

Young Dingoes rhythm guitarist Brad Durrant said it was the second time the band had played the festival.

"We love playing at festivals - usually we play at pubs and music venues, so it's great to get out in the sunshine," he said.

Durrant said the band would play a couple of different songs to their normal set.

"We've now been together for two years and really enjoy playing to the locals."
