What: The Peats Ridge Sustainable Arts And Music Festival
When: Friday December 10, 2004

A NEW three-day festival will make its debut in the beautiful GLENWORTH VALLEY this week.

THE PEATS RIDGE SUSTAINABLE ARTS AND MUSIC FESTIVAL will be held this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

It will combine the festival genre with sustainability issues to increase awareness of both international and national resource issues.

Event publicist PAULINE HESSELL said she hoped the festival would become a mainstay on the Australian festival scene.

In addition to learning more about living sustainably and contributing to the well-being of the environment, there will be over 60 bands and DJs performing.

These will encompass a wide variety of musical genres, including world music, blues, roots, dub, contemporary music and chilled beats.

Acts will include MONSIEUR CAMEMBERT, KING TIDE, MICK HART, TRACKY DAX, FOURPLAY, ARABESQUE, FIREHOUSE SOUND SYSTEM, CHARLIE McMAHON AND RADICAL SON, ABBY DOBSON, JEFF DREAD, SARITAH, ROBIN KNIGHT, PAUL GREENE, JIVE KAYANA, wGRAHAM MANDROULES and PONY CLUB MASSACRE. There will also be markets and food stalls, children's workshops and other activities, plus a children's minding centre so parents can enjoy a bit of free time.

All profits from the festival will go towards funding education projects in sustainable food production for developing countries.

Tickets cost $48 (plus a booking fee).

For this you will receive a three- day pass and access to the camping area.
