A limited number of 1000 reduced-priced tickets for the Deni Blues & Roots Festival have been made available just for ‘locals’.
Southern Riverina residents in the 2713 and 2710 postcode areas are eligible for the specially priced tickets, which are only available until this Sunday (or until they run out).
The two-day local tickets are $150 for adults and $75 for juniors (under 16) for the March 30 and 31 Easter event. It’s a huge saving of $100 and $75 respectively, and with about 20 bands set to perform, it’s also a bargain.
The massive concert will be held at the Deniliquin Ute Muster site, now referred to as the Riverina Regional Events Centre, on Easter Saturday and Sunday.
There will be camping available at the site from noon on Good Friday, for an extra cost.
The event is an exciting collaboration between Chugg Entertainment, Rob Potts Entertainment Edge and the Deniliquin Play on the Plains Festival.
‘‘We’re so excited to bring this new event to the region for the first time,’’ music promoter Michael Chugg said.
‘‘This is an area with a strong tradition of bringing people together for a good time and with the calibre of acts on this line-up, they won’t be disappointed.’’
The stunning musical line-up will include Australian and big international acts.
Artists confirmed for the event also include Tony Joe White, Chris Russell’s Chicken Walk, Chris Wilson/Geoff Achison Band, Gallie & Shannon Bourne, Collard Greens & Gravy, Morgan Evans, Ward’s Express and Marco Goldsmith Band.
More artists will be announced in coming weeks.
There are 1000 reduced price local tickets available until Sunday. If buying online, you need to use the promotional code ‘local’. They can also be purchased at Muster HQ in Hardinge St, Deniliquin.
Another 1000 tickets will be sold as pre-sale tickets on Ticketek for $220 for adults and $110 for juniors, starting from today.
General admission tickets go on sale from 9am on November 26, priced at $250 for two days for adults and $125 for juniors.
One-day-only tickets are $150 for adults and $75 for juniors. There are 3500 one-day-only tickets available for each day.
