There's a NEW music festival coming to town! Greater Shepparton City Council and Shepparton Show Me have partnered with RED HILL Entertainment to add a music event to the major events calendar.
The music festival will be coming to Shepparton Showgrounds and will include a lineup of headline artists taking to the stage on 2 November 2019!
Greater Shepparton City Council Deputy Mayor Seema Abdullah said the music festival has been a long awaited event for the community and is expecting thousands to attend.
“Council continues its hard work in obtaining events to significantly increase visitors to the region,” said Cr Abdullah.
“Together with Shepparton Show Me and RED HILL we hope to attract 2,500 to 3,000 attendees for the first event.”
Chair of Shepparton Show Me, Simon Quattrocchi envisions the event to attract audiences from across the state and contributing to the towns’ economic growth.
“We are aiming for a number of visitors to travel from the likes of Melbourne and other parts of Victoria who will stay locally and indulge in what Shepparton has to offer,” Mr Quattrocchi said.
Having delivered more than 20 music festival events over the past 10 years, Co-Director of RED HILL Aidan McLaren said they are looking forward to developing a show in the region.
"We're incredibly excited to be partnering with Greater Shepparton City Council and Shepparton Show Me to establish a large-scale all-ages music event here in Greater Shepparton. Having developed regional events in other parts of the state we believe there is enormous potential for such an event here and are really looking forward to working with the local community and local businesses to make it a huge success,” Mr McLaren said.
Community members can soon get involved regarding naming the event and can assist in selecting artists to appear at the festival through an online survey.
More info will be released in the future. Until then, keep an eye out for details!
