As most Bribie Islanders (and visitors) know, there are many talented and popular entertainers who reside within the local area and can often be seen performing to patrons at one of the hotels, restaurants or clubs.
Whilst this ensures that there is almost always somewhere to go for music lovers to enjoy whatever genre that is their favourite, at most these events usually only feature two or three artists over a few hours so, for anyone who would like to be entertained by a different artist every thirty minutes over a six-hour period, the BIDCA Music Festival on October 26th is an event not to be missed.
Commencing at 2 pm in the Bribie Island Indoor Bowls Hall on First Avenue (next to the Orchid House), this concert is being held as a fundraiser in support of those who are homeless or at risk and a BIDCA (Bribie Island District Community Appeal) spokesperson has advised that, as there are only a total of two hundred tickets available, those who wish to attend should get in early to avoid disappointment.
‘The artists who are appearing at the Music Festival all have their own style and this will ensure a great range of genres, providing entertainment for all tastes and making it a must-attend for many,’ he pointed out. Over the six hours, music lovers will be treated to performances by Michael Early, The Wildflowers, Jack James, Rick Dalton and Erin May as well as Emma Dyson, Peta Schubel, the Plumb Dogs and more.
To ensure that patrons do not go hungry, there will be tasty hamburgers and cold drinks available throughout the duration and as well as the chance to take home the lucky door prize, festival-goers will have the opportunity to purchase tickets in the raffle which offers major prizes of a BBQ Boat Hire Voucher and a New Acoustic Guitar with carrying bag and other minor prizes.
As is the case with all fundraising events, the support of the local community and businesses is essential and the BIDCA team have said that they would like to thank major sponsors Victory Press, Simone Wilson MP, The Bribie Islander Community Magazine and Bribie Island Boat Charters along with other businesses for their wonderful support. Anyone who wishes to purchase tickets or find out more about the BIDCA Music Festival should call Neil on 0448 932 484.
