Party comes to the people

JONATHON Offord should be patted on the back and bought a beer for bringing the party to the people of the Capricorn Coast with the first RudeBox Summer Beach Festival.

Along with friend Jason Hirt, Mr Offord achieved a great milestone in holding the first electronic dance festival on the Yeppoon beachfront, pre-selling 1100 tickets for the Boxing Day event, with gate sales swelling numbers even more.

The weather was great and the ambience even better.

Happy party people flocked to the secured area, where the old hospital once stood, a prime location which has sat vacant and unused since demolition.

So with great music, the stamping of feet and pounding of fists and some mighty funky moves, it was put to use as public land.
