It's time to get your Rock'n'Blues on
JIMMY Budgen, organiser of the Mitchell Creek Rock'n'Blues fest is keen to dispel the myth the venue is sold out.
"We're not full up. We're not booked out," Mr Budgen said.
The festival has been running since 2012 and each year, Jimmy strives to add something new to help the festival grow.
In addition to the music, Mitchell Creek is all about the food, according to Jimmy.
"You won't find any fast food. It's all handmade by traditional methods," he said.
Jimmy described the food as multi-cultural with different menus and catering, including an Italian restaurant, a fresh seafood restaurant and Indian and Thai cuisines, plus many more.
There is also room for 45-plus stalls, selling not only food, but handiworks and hand-made wares in a central "Village" space.
The 150-plus artists, in more than 45 bands will perform over the three days on alternating stages that are being erected onsite today.
Another new edition to the festival this year is the Zeppelin Bar. Jimmy describes the space as a lounge bar where musicians can come and relax after their performances and meet the crowd, and sign and sell merchandise and CDs and the like.
There are still tickets available to the Back to Woodstock-themed festival from the website: www.mitchellcreekrockn bluesfest.com.au.
