A new music festival called ‘Resilience’ is coming to Tony Luchetti showground this October and it’s to be headlined by Tonight Alive, Hellions and Clowns with a stack of other acts. Apart from being a place where good music can be seen and heard, there’s another reason why this festival is taking place and that is to raise awareness of the services available for people who are having a rough time.
Co-organiser Greg McManus told musicfeeds.com.au ‘A number of people have taken their life in the area in the last 18 months and we want to raise awareness and funds to pump back into the community and support people in the area’.
Money raised from the festival will cover costs with additional funds to be donated to a charity. Also on the bill for the October 13th festival are: The Chats, Red Bee, She Cries Wolf and a stack more.
