The ABC has a story on some sensible sounding changes to the National Folk Festival:
Organisers are shifting the performance venues from the Federal Highway side of Exhibition Park to the Flemington Road area to help rein in the budget.
Mr Flynn says there are several benefits.
“Not being near a residential area [of Watson] it gives us the added advantage of being able to continue a very nice late night program right across the site,” he said.
“Another thing we have been able to do is move the increasingly popular Majestic program and circus big top. We have brought it in off the oval, and have integrated it into the rest of the festival.
“And the other added advantage of that, is the oval has now given us a very generous tent-only area for campers.”
Mr Flynn says entry ticket prices will be frozen at last year’s level to encourage more patrons.
Great news to see The Majestic being retained.
