National media attention for music festival

By Mark Beale

THE Airlie Beach Festival of Music is about to rock into the nation’s homes, with a television slot on tonight’s episode of ‘Blokesworld’ dedicated to the 2014 event.

Festival organiser Gavin ‘Butto’ Butlin said this was going to be “massive” exposure for the event.

“This [television] show has a following of about 300,000 people in Australia and New Zealand so hopefully people will see [the festival on] it tonight and think ‘that looks awesome’,” he said.

Mr Butlin said the boys from Blokesworld had a great time filming at the 2014 event with tonight’s episode to feature footage that would also promote the Whitsundays.

“[Blokesworld presenter] Ado interviewed a lot of the bands and took some great footage of the music,” he said.

“And it’s all about Airlie Beach too.”

Tickets to the 2015 Airlie Beach Festival of Music are expected to go on sale in mid-March and some of the line-up has already been announced.

Mr Butlin said big name acts including The Black Sorrows, Angry Anderson (Rose Tattoo), Wendy Matthews, Mason Rack and Wanita Queen of Honky Tonk were already “locked in”.

Tonight’s episode of Blokesworld will screen on the free-to-air digital channel ONE HD at 11.30pm.
