Townsville Bulletin - - FRONT PAGE - AN­DREW BACKHOUSE

STOP cook­ing and get down to the Townsville Cul­tural Fes­ti­val this week­end.

That’s the mes­sage from the fes­ti­val’s ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor, Dr Far­vardin Daliri, who said there was enough food there to feed “all of Townsville”.

Dr Daliri said today’s fes­ti­val would be a melt­ing pot of Aus­tralian cul­tural her­itage and di­ver­sity.

“From one end of the fes­ti­val to the other – ev­ery step you’ll find a colour, a smell, taste and mu­sic,” he said.

“It will be rapidly chang­ing the whole day from 10am until 1pm.

“Ev­ery part will be fas­ci­nat­ing and di­verse. Today and to­mor­row we’ve got a huge lineup of mu­sic and acts.”

The fes­ti­val is tak­ing place at the James Cook Univer­sity cam­pus in Dou­glas.
