With some of the hottest acts Newy has ever produced slated to strut their stuff, the inaugural Sound Station Music and Arts Festival promises to be a stellar showcase of local talent.
There’s no doubt that we love a music fest here at Newcastle Live and if you’re like us, just the mention of a local music fest will have you clearing your calendar in anticipation.
If however, you need a little more convincing, here are our top five reasons to check out Sound Station Music and Arts Festival at the Old Newcastle Station on Saturday 4 April.
1. The Line-Up
Obviously, the main attraction at any music fest and this one is the freaking goods! The Gooch Palms, Grace Turner, Eat Your Heart Out, Glovers Lane, Kookshill and Boycott to name a few.
You’ll notice that Screaming Jets are not playing, and thank gawd for that as Newcastle has quite a lot of current acts and artists to offer the community.
2. It’s freaking free
Yah. You heard me, it’s fo’ free.
3. It’s what the people want – aka you asked for this
The Live Music Taskforce was put together for precisely this reason – to give Novocastrians access to live music events and encourage local artists to do their thing.
Is there a better way to do that than with a festival? Nup didn’t think so.
Heck to the yeah!
4. It’s at the Old Newcastle Station
A landmark in its own right, maybe it’s about time you went and had a bit of a gander?
Is there a better time to check it out than when the Goochies are playing? No, there isn’t.
5. Go for the bands, stay for the snacks
Everyone loves a food truck.
It’s the reason most of us leave the house on a weekend – to go and eat something delicious that was cooked and prepared inside a magical truck. That, and it’s going to be a heck of a lot cooler in April.
