Fans rock up to That Festival
THAT Festival feeling hit Cabarita at the weekend for more than 3000 music lovers.
Promoter Rossco Paddison said ticket sales were double that of last year, and only 12 people were evicted from the festival, held at the Cabarita Pony Club.
“The success of That Festival shows the thousands of local kids who want to get involved in live music,” Mr Paddison said.
“We’ve also had a lot of people in the local community come out of the woodwork this weekend who want to get behind next year’s festival.”
Morning showers cleared for an afternoon of home-grown music, and Mr Paddison said organisers were happy with the event.
“The jam tent went off and the stage was brilliant,” he said.
“Everyone in the tent gave their time freely, and it was a chance for the younger upcoming bands to mix with the older guys.”
Organisers are playing with ideas for next year’s festival with camping options on the drawing board.
More than 30 bands played at this year’s festival, including Australian greats You Am I, Ash Grunwald and Regurgitator.
