Festival hailed 'a big deal'

ROCKHAMPTON’S Electronic Vibes music festival could rival that of Townsville’s ‘Groovin The Moo’, says event organiser Gary Stickley.

Mr Stickley has been in the event organising industry for 25 years, so he knows a thing or two about putting on a good show.

And today’s festival, created by Greg McLean, has caught the Rockhampton veteran’s eye as “a great idea and big deal for Rockhampton”.

“I admire his (Greg’s) courage and it is great to see the support the Rockhampton region is giving him, especially for a stand-alone event,” Mr Stickley said.

Mr Stickley, who has been at the heart of organising many Rocky B&S Balls, said he was very impressed by Greg’s fresh ideas and outlook on creating this event.

“Rocky really needs something for the youth to be proud of and hang their hat on,” he said.

“If this works it will help give the town a positive perspective for young people.”

Mr Stickley hopes it becomes an annual event for Rockhampton and wished Greg and his team all the best.
