Preparation for the 3rd Annual Coast Acoustics Festival is well underway. The date is set for 17-18 September at the Broadwater Parklands. To date the organisers have received 50 applications from performers so far offering to play and run workshops.
The club has also received letters of support from Bob Lacastra, Billy Hyde, Folk Redlands, Loose Acoustics, Wildcare and Folk Alliance Australia for grant submissions have been sent to Arts Queensland and Jupiters seeking assistance to offset festival costs
Festival organisers are seeking your help. The festival has all the makings of becoming a significant event on the Coast. Not only will it provide a great weekend of music and workshops, it has the potential to take off and give the club a huge boost.
Here’s an opportunity for members to be a part of Gold Coast history by joining the festival sub-committee to make sure everything runs smoothly. Planning and running an event like this is very exciting. There is work to do and we need people to help out . You will need to be prepared to attend 3-4 meetings and set aside a couple of hours a month plus help out at the festival itself. In return you get a cup of coffee and a nice feeling inside.
Festival committee jobs include organising sound, MC, stages, marquees, promotions and marketing, programs, mail outs, stalls, stage coordination, coffee and food vans, sausage sizzle, membership drive, transport, marshaling, bump in and out.
If you would like to be part of the festival, please send an email to ba*****@bi*****.com or phone Rob on 0240861911.
