Grampians Mu­sic Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers are con­fi­dent the an­nual event is primed to con­tinue grow­ing af­ter a huge week­end of en­ter­tain­ment at Halls Gap. Fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Carly Flec­k­noe said mem­bers of an or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee were ab­so­lutely thrilled with the event, which fo­cuses on pro­mot­ing and pre­sent­ing up-and-com­ing Aus­tralian mu­si­cians.

“We’re still work­ing on num­bers but the crowd was up on last year, with early es­ti­ma­tions of be­tween 700 and 800 pa­trons. We had an amaz­ing crowd with no se­cu­rity or first-aid in­ci­dents,” she said.

“We’re deep into plan­ning and have had a lot of queries about next year’s fes­ti­val, which is ex­cit­ing. It re­ally au­gurs well for its abil­ity to con­tinue to grow.”
