Volunteers needed for festival eats Ridge Festival organisers are calling for volunteers for the 2011 festival to be held over three days from December 29 until January 1.


Volunteers will earn a free ticket to the 2012 festival and will receive an invite to the staff party to be held in Syndey. The Packdown Crew would work seven half days restoring Glenworth Valley to its pre-festival beauty, while making new friends and enjoying evening entertainment each day. The Packdown Crew enjoy a full week of camping after the festival to relax and unwind after a madcap three days enjoying all the Festival has to offer. Those with a keen eye for style can join the Decor Crew and be an integral part of designing the feel of the festival. Join the Green Team and be an ambassador for sustainability, or for the stronger ones out there, why not consider being a part of the set up and construction crews and help build the

festival - one tee pee at a time. Peats Ridge is also on the lookout for Masterchefs to help feed the masses – from dish pigs to those with culinary master skills, the Hospitality Crew will man the various kitchens throughout the festival site. Festival director Mr Matt Grant said volunteering for the Festival is not all hard work and sweat. “With shifts at the Festival lasting only five to six hours each, there is still be plenty of time for volunteers to soak up the atmosphere and check out some great acts. “They can even nominate when they’d like to do their shifts so they can plan around what they want to see over the three days.� Media Release, 5 Dec 2011 Amber Forrest-Bisley, Cardinal Spin

At the end of the My School Act competition, the band, made up of Rohan Fleming, Will Hunt, Bryce Gleeson and Jordan Fleming, was among the final five acts Australia-wide. The state winners got together in Sydney for a weekend of industry talks before the grand final. “We had such a brilliant weekend hanging out with other bands and industry guys, learning about the business and getting lots of great advice, said band member Rohan Fleming. “They picked us up from our houses, we stayed in a Sydney hotel over the weekend and played two songs in the grand final at the Metro Theatre on Sunday night. “It would have been crazy to have won the final, the recording contract and everything but to get to play Big Day Out is awesome. “The nerves haven’t kicked in yet, but they will soon I guess.� They will be sharing the stage with a stellar line up of international talent including Soundgarden, Foster the People and Noel Gallagher.
