The stages are set atop Wahluu- Mount Panorama for two days of music, art and culture at Inland Sea of Sound 2020, which gets under way today.
From 5pm today and 11.45am tomorrow, festival goers will bear witness to a bustling roster of entertainment, headlined by stalwart Australian acts Missy Higgins and Killing Heidi.
In a new addition, punters are set to enjoy the festival in relative comfort from the sun, with shade cloths added to all three stages.
"The shaded areas are going to add an enormous amount of comfort to the front of the main stages," Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre [BMEC] manager Stephen Champion said.
"It can get rather hot during the day [especially on the Saturday], so I think festival goers will appreciate the opportunity to get a good view of the stages without the risk of sunburn."
Mr Champion said the setup process has gone according to plan and with favourable weather predicted for both days, expects a hassle-free event.
"It's quite amazing how much effort is required to put a two-day festival together, and the events staff have done a fantastic job in getting the site ready," he said.

With Killing Heidi and Missy Higgins set to headline the schedules for today and tomorrow respectively, Mr Champion said festival goers can expect two outstanding sets.
"Since they've reformed, Killing Heidi have been blowing audiences away across Australia, they are absolutely at their best," he said.
"In addition, Missy Higgins will perform as part of a six-piece band, and the audience is bound to see why she has been one of Australia's most versatile performers over the past two decades."
Mr Champion said the festival will also be a great opportunity to see some lesser known acts with international gravitas.
"There are some artists on the smaller stages, such as Imogen Clark, who are starting to build an international audience and others, like Cass Eager & the Velvet Rope, who have taken their music to unique worldwide locations," he said.
Festival goers are reminded to leave significant picnic items at home to keep in spirit with the event's support of local food and drink producers.
