Three new festivals have been announced for October 2011 across Australia for all music fans to bask in their glory.
The South Australian government will fund Earth Station, the greenie version of Womadelaide. It is to be run in Belair National Park from October 21 to 23, by the Womadelaide Foundation. The program will include workshops, performances, sustainable technology demonstrations “and even an international think-tank concentrating on one significant issue,” said Premier Mike Rann.
Ballina NSW will host the inaugural Coastal Country Music Festival in October, with Troy Cassar-Daley confirmed as the headlining act.
