Registrations have been streaming in for the Deniliquin Blues & Roots Festival ticket giveaway, which ends on March 15.By Zoe McMaugh
More than 70 people have registered to win free tickets to the inaugural Deniliquin Blues & Roots Festival, and the competition is still open.
The event is now less than 20 days away. It will be held Easter Saturday and Sunday, March 29 and 30, at the Deniliquin Ute Muster site.
Megastar international artists have been confirmed for the bumper event, including Santana, Chris Isaak, Status Quo, Steve Miller Band, Newton Faulkner and Jason Mraz.
With excitement building, organisers joined with the Pastoral Times to offer free weekend passes to 10 lucky blues fans.
Since the announcement of the competition on the Pastoral Times’ new Facebook page on Thursday, about 76 people had signed up to be in the running for the tickets by yesterday afternoon.
Muster marketing manager Karla Notley said it had been a fantastic response so far.
She said entries would be accepted until March 15.
In the meantime, festival organisers have been marketing the festival to a wider audience to ensure it reaches as many music fans as possible.
Miss Notley said information stalls were placed at the Victorian Caravan, Camping & Touring Supershow and Moama Markets at the weekend to attract Victorian Labour Day weekend revellers.
Representatives were also spreading the word about the Deni event at the Port Fairy Folk Festival.
