Burdekin music lovers are in for a treat with the Burdekin Battle of the Bands changing its format and venue next week.
The Burdekin Band Fest will kick off from 7pm on Saturday, April 14, at the Burdekin Theatre Foyer in Ayr and is a fully supervised drug and alcohol-free event. Entry into the event is $5 and there will be food and drinks on sale.
Burdekin Shire Council Economic and Community Development Manager Tony Vaccaro said the format and venue of the night had changed due to slow response to the call for nominations.
“The event will no longer be a competition but more a concert which will allow our young local bands some stage time,” he said.
“At this stage there will be six bands playing as well as our special guest Trent Bell.
“It will still be a great night for those who enjoy live gigs.”
The Burdekin Band Fest has been organised by the Burdekin Youth Council.
