Big plans for mu­sic fes­ti­val

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

RICHARD Clap­ton, Euro­gly­ders and An­gry An­der­son will be among the big names per­form­ing at this year’s Air­lie Beach Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

Some of last year’s favourites in­clud­ing Wanita the Honky Tonk Queen, Ma­son Rack and 8-Ball Aitken will also be back.

Or­gan­is­ers are cur­rently ne­go­ti­at­ing with sev­eral other big names to en­sure a huge line up on the main stage.

Fes­ti­val pro­moter Gavin (Butto) But­lin said it was full steam ahead with or­gan­is­ing this year’s fes­ti­val.

He said there had been a lot of in­ter­est in tick­ets from people in­ter­state, in­clud­ing people who were here for last year’s in­au­gu­ral event.

The fes­ti­val will again run over three days at 16 venues through­out Air­lie Beach and ticket hold­ers will also be able to at­tend the jam ses­sion on the Thurs­day night with a lot of the big name per­form­ers.

Early bird three-day tick- ets are al­ready avail­able through the Mackay En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre for $245.

This is the dis­counted price for the first 1000 ticket hold­ers with the stan­dard price this year of $260 for three days.

“Last year’s event was awe­some and the feed­back has been great,” Mr But­lin said. “We will be an­nounc­ing more acts as the date gets closer but I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to buy tick­ets soon so that no-one missed out,” he said.

This year’s fes­ti­val will be held on Novem­ber 7, 8 and 9.
