Re­gional bands hit the stage for shindig

Chinchilla News - - BEST OF THE WEST -

CHARLEVILLE are gear­ing up for one of its big­gest nights of the year this Fri­day – the Half­way There Shindig.

This year, or­gan­is­ers have em­pha­sised on show­cas­ing lo­cal ta­lent and have two ex­tra­or­di­nary bands com­ing to rock the stage, So­lar Flare and Ned and the Kellys.

Mur­weh Shire tourism co-or­di­na­tor Monique John­son said this year there are some changes to the venue and some ex­cit­ing as­pects ex­pected.

“This year we have moved the Half­way There Shindig back to the main street be­cause last year we found the race­course was a lit­tle bit colder than we had an­tic­i­pated, and se­condly this venue in­volves the lo­cal busi­nesses, giv­ing them the op­por­tu­nity to stay open,” Ms John­son said.

“This year the con­cert will be in the heart of Wills Street, with the main stage op­po­site NAB.

“For en­ter­tain­ment we have the Charleville State High School rock band, So­lar Flare per­form­ing from 5.15pm for the first set.”

FES­TIV­I­TIES: Lo­cal band Ned and the Kellys will per­form.
