Rockin’ 4 The Homeless To Rock Out In December

Jun 23, 2020
ROCKIN’ 4 THE HOMELESS TO ROCK  OUT IN  DECEMBER
THE COUNTDOWN TO ONE OF REDCLIFFE’S FAVOURITE MUSIC FESTIVALS IS ON AGAIN WITH ORGANISERS SETTING A NEW DATE FOR THE ROCKIN’ 4 THE HOMELESS 2020 FESTIVAL.

Organisers are now planning to rock Redcliffe with a spectacular line-up of live music, entertainment, food and family fun on Saturday, 19 December.

The festival was supposed to go ahead on 12 June, but due to COVID-19 social restrictions, had to be postponed.

Now in its seventh year, Rockin’ 4 The Homeless is an initiative of and major fundraiser for The Breakfast Club Redcliffe, along with the event’s gala ball and fundraising auction, being held Friday, 18 December.

Rockin’ 4 The Homeless director Dan Nebe said that while most aspects of the event were already locked in, such as the entertainment and sponsors, organisers were maintaining a flexible stance on the final event format.

“We have to be ready for different scenarios …by December, if we’re only allowed to have 200 people, then when we might run two different shows including an afternoon and evening session with a shorter, more compact format, but if it’s open slather on crowd numbers — we’ll be ready for that too,” Dan said.

“This year, it’s looking like we’ll have one big stage along with some different areas including a chill-out zone, acoustic area and potentially a DJ tent.

“We have to plan for the best-case scenario and the worst, and we’ll be ready to tailor the event for whatever that presents, come December.”

Festival-goers can expect an action-packed line-up of musical talent as seen in previous years with the likes of Superjesus, Spy vs. Spy, Team Utopia, Salt & Steel, Tripsitta and many more.

A $100k fundraising goal has been set for the event, all of which goes towards running The Breakfast Club — a volunteer organisation that supports the homeless and those in need on the Redcliffe Peninsula.

Anyone interested in supporting Rockin’ 4 The Homeless with sponsorship or as a volunteer is encouraged to get in contact via the event’s Facebook page.

More details, including the new event venue, will be released next month.
