This is an incredible achievement for an event run by a tiny group of volunteers with basically no government assistance – they will be up against the likes of Dark MOFO, Mona Foma, Junction Arts Festival and Taste of Tasmania – all of which get tens of thousands of dollars in government support, not just through direct grant funding but through the assistance of Events Tasmania in marketing, guest artist procurement, and the giveaway of 1000 free airfares from Sydney and Melbourne to get more people to their events ... the list goes on. We can be very proud of this small team for being named as a finalist – ahead of other North-West events such as Burnie Shines, Devonport Jazz, the Devonport food festival, Chocolate Winterfest and other major local events.'
