Small turnout for music fest
THERE was room for 1000 people to party the night away at the End of Summer Days Music Festival.
But the night left Peter O'Toole, organiser and general manager of venue The Cambridge Hotel, disappointed, with fewer than 100 people turning out for the Saturday night event.
Although the turnout left Mr O'Toole disheartened, he said those who did attend had nothing but positive feedback.
The hotel worked with Synergy Live Events and Pimp My Party for the two-day festival, which had an over-18s night on Saturday and an under-age festival yesterday afternoon.
Former Rockhampton local DJ Blake Hamlyn, Brisbane act MC Kitch and a host of other local acts played at the event.
Entertainment at yesterday's event also included Queensland's biggest waterslide, a mechanical surfboard, a foam party and jelly wrestling.
Mr O'Toole has been running The Cambridge Hotel since December and ran three similar events a year in Moranbah, which attracted 800 to 1000 people.
But such a small turnout has left him contemplating whether he will run something similar in the future.
