“WE ARE try­ing to get this place go­ing – to give it back a heartbeat,” are the words from pub­li­can Nathan “Kroppy” Kropp af­ter the suc­cess­ful mu­sic fes­ti­val on Sun­day.

Coun­try at the Beach was held for the first time in Woodgate and or­gan­is­ers hope it will be­come an an­nual af­fair.

The Woodgate Beach Ho­tel came alive with mu­sic from Travis Collins, Mickey Pye and Cait­lyn Shad­bolt.

Mr Kropp said there was a big turnout at the fes­ti­val with peo­ple com­ing from as far as Bris­bane to re­lax and lis­ten to the coun­try tunes.

“Mu­sic is a big part of Wooodgate and we de­cided to go down the coun­try path which turned out great,” he said.

“We had more than 400 turn up from all sur­round­ing ar­eas in­clud­ing Her­vey Bay and Bundaberg.”

He said the at­mos­phere made the even­ing event on the long week­end stand out and the coun­try rock songs were the per­fect choice.

“It was good to give back to the com­mu­nity, the Woodgate lo­cals and just re­ally good for the town,” Mr Kropp said.
