CONGRATULATIONS to the Airlie Beach Music Festival’s Blue on Blue competition winners – Mark Nicol, Tony Fossey and Rebelquin.
This competition is being held in the lead-up to the Airlie Beach Music Festival and based around the Airlie Beach song by long-time Airlie musician, Kieran McCarthy.
The Airlie Beach Music Festival is now just over three weeks away.
The festival was held for the first time last year and attracted hundreds of people from all parts of Australia as well as the local area.
This year the festival’s headline acts include Screaming Jets, Eurogliders, Jon English, James Blundell, Phil Emmanuel and Mark Seymour from Hunters and Collectors.
It is a festival with the potential to become one of the best known musical events in Australia.
Last year’s event had a fantastic atmosphere - and organiser and promoter Gavin Butlin wants to make this an annual event.
With just three weeks to go, locals are encouraged to buy their tickets now and tell their friends about the festival.
It is being held on November 8 , 9 and 10 with the main acts at the Whitsunday Sailing Club and others being performed at various venues around town. On another matter... The annual Whitsunday Tourism and business awards are being held this Saturday night at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre.
This is an annual event to showcase excellence in business in the Whitsunday – and it’s also a lot of fun.
With only a limited number of tickets available, now is your last chance to take part in our tourism industry’s “night of nights”.
