Tick­ets sell­ing for Rock­fest

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Or­gan­is­ers of a ma­jor out­door rock con­cert in Hor­sham next week have urged peo­ple to avoid a last-minute rush and make sure they have tick­ets.

Mil­dura En­ter­tain­ment’s David Storer said tick­ets for Hor­sham’s in­au­gu­ral Rock­fest at Sawyer Park Sound­shell on De­cem­ber 8 would be avail­able on the night, but pre-buy­ing tick­ets would save pa­trons time and frus­tra­tion.

“If Bro­ken Hill’s Rock­fest is any­thing to go by, peo­ple don’t want to be wast­ing time pon­der­ing over last-minute tick­ets. They will want to get in there,” he said.

“For the peo­ple who are won­der­ing what it will be like, all I can say is that the Bro­ken Hill show went off – it was a rip­per and I ex­pect the same sort of at­mos­phere in Hor­sham.”

Mr Storer said the aim was to at­tract at least 1000 peo­ple to the show, fea­tur­ing a va­ri­ety of iconic and high-qual­ity Aus­tralian rock acts that build through­out the af­ter­noon and into the evening.

“Num­bers so far sug­gest we’re get­ting there but we’d like to get rid of most of the tick­ets be­fore the fes­ti­val,” he said.

“The crit­i­cal thing is to not leave it to the last minute.

“It is not of­ten you get to see acts of this cal­i­bre play­ing in an out­door show like this in the Wim­mera.” The acts in­clude renowned live per­former Shan­non Noll, iconic retro acts Chan­toozies and the Choir Boys and Aus­tralian X-fac­tor win­ner Reece Mastin.

“For less than the price of a tank of fuel, you can see six great acts in your own back­yard. It doesn’t get much bet­ter than that,” Mr Storer said.

“We’re keen to get the place pump­ing and that means mak­ing sure we have a big crowd in the park.

“And don’t for­get – this is the type of show where you can be as en­gaged or re­laxed as you like. There are plenty of op­tions.

“You can bring a chair if you want and we have mar­quees, al­fresco ta­bles, a VIP beer gar­den and of course a big dance area.

“The event is about ev­ery­one en­joy­ing them­selves. No one has ever walked away from a Rock­fest with­out hav­ing a good time.”

The Hor­sham con­cert is from 3pm to 11pm and is part of the Rock­fest tour, which also in­cludes a con­cert in Swan Hill this week­end.

Gen­eral ad­mis­sion is $79.95 for the whole day and free of charge for chil­dren un­der 15.

Tick­ets are avail­able at Har­vey Nor­man Hor­sham or on­line at www. oztix.com.au.
