Just wanted to let you know that a great project has been funded by Festival’s Australia.
Council put in for a great for Live & Local in Community Halls.
We recently did an EOI for local artists/bands/singer songwriters and we were blown away with the response.
This prompted us to set up a bands booking page on our website: https://www.macedonrangeshalls.com.au/bands/
This prompted us to put in a grant application to bring live music to community halls.
The funding pays for a support act and main act but also purchases a PA system that community halls can use for future gigs.
Each hall will host a gig during the Macedon Ranges Autumn Festival in April 2024 either on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
We will set it up as a music trail with live music across the shire every weekend in a community hall.
Council will work with the halls and their community to match up wineries, food trucks, etc.
Each hall keeps the ticket sales from their event to put towards future live music gigs in their hall.
