Festival Information

The Red Hill Country Music festival promises to be a great start to 2014. The Festival is to be held on Sunday January 13th 2014 at the Red Hill Showgrounds, on Arthurs Seat Road, Red Hill. For a Melways reference look at page 190 J3.

The genre of the festival has made a small shift from previous years and for 2014 we will have a Country, and Country Rock. The artists are keen to present their material and it is hoped that there will be a large crowd on the day.

Festival Chairman Mr Jeff Sproal promised those attending a wonderful day, with fabulous entertainers, line dancing demos, in a great family atmosphere. Mr Sproal added that the Lions Club of Mount Eliza is a step closer to making the Red Hill Festival a keynote annual entertainment day for all residents and visitors to the Peninsula.

Artists on the bill for 2014 are Nicki Gillis, The Davidson Brothers, Wanita, Lee Forster, Trevor Dennis, Johnny Cash Tribute Show – Walk The Line, The Blackhill Ramblers, The Prairie Oysters and The Distance. A fabulous day’s entertainment at the beautiful Red Hill Showgrounds Reserve.

Our compere for the day is the inimitable Mr Rod Quarrel.
