CITY’S MUSIC FEST READY TO ROCK
TOWNSVILLE is getting ready rock with two iconic bands set headline an upcoming festival.
Two- time Aria Award winners Mental as Anything, and chart toppers The Radiators will play at Townsville Rock Fest.
Event co- organiser Tammy Roberts said the festival would combine old and new styles of rock.
“We are so excited to be welcoming Mental as Anything and The Radiators to Townsville for the Rock Fest, and can’t wait to make this the best outdoor music experience we can for the city,” she said.
Organisers aim to celebrate new and upcoming Townsville talent by awarding the third headline spot to the winner of a Battle of the Bands competition, to be held in August.
“It was also important for us to recognise Townsville’s incredible local talent at the festival, so well as having two local bands as support acts, one Townsville group will be named as a headliner alongside the national acts,” Mrs Roberts said.
“The Battle of the Bands held at the Herbert Hotel in the lead up to the Rock Fest will be a great additional event to showcase the musicians that form the lifeblood of our city’s music scene, and will give one of them the opportunity to have their name up in the lights alongside the timeless Mental as Anything and The Radiators.”
The Townsville Rock Fest will take place at the Murray Sporting Complex on October 14 from 3pm. to to
