These rockers ain’t no angels! The Angels are responsible for some of Australia’s best rock anthems and they’re coming to Cunnamulla for Cully Fest 2016. Headed by energetic frontman Dave Gleeson, they will rock this Outback town like never before. Don’t miss The Angels live in concert, right here in Cunnamulla.
The Angels have penned and sung some of Australia’s most famous rock anthems – We Gotta Get Out Of This Place and Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again and Shadow Boxer– and they’re set to unleash these and more from their back catalogue as the headline act during the inaugural Cully Fest this Easter.
The brainchild of Cunnamulla local and proprietor of the Club Boutique Hotel, Peieta Mills, Cully Fest is a four-day Outback and Aboriginal Folk Festival, which will run from 31 March until 3 April 2016 and celebrate all things Australian – from Aussie rockers to indigenous culture – during the Easter school holidays.
According to Peieta, it was a no-brainer when it came to picking the act to rock out at the Outback Queensland festival.
“We get a lot of country entertainers out back – which we love and revere, but we wanted to shake things up at the inaugural Cully Fest by bringing a little rock to town and a little Outback to these city rockers.”
Four decades after they formed in Adelaide – a mere 1300km from Cunnamulla – and signed a record deal with AC/DCs label, Alberts, The Angels – with new front man Dave Gleeson of Screaming Jets fame who also had their own version of the song The Cunnamulla Fella – are still rocking out as hard as ever, performing at sold-out shows around the country.
The Angels are just one of a handful of acts that will be delighting festival goers with a mix of Aussie rock, folk and indigenous music during Cully Fest. Other entertainers include: Mark Atkins, Eric Ellis, Mitch and Georgia, Reuben Birchley, Josephine Birch, Christopher Coleman Collective, Darren Hanlon, Body & Soul Music, PJ, Herb Wharton, Michael Nicholas, Guwamu Dancers and Jessie G… with more being announced weekly.
But Cully Fest is so much more than just an Outback rock concert. It offers a diverse range of kids’ activities, creative workshops, fishing competitions on the Warrego River, didgeridoo making courses meshing together over four action-packed days. There’s plenty to keep adults amused too, with creative workshops, bush tucker kup murris and open garden trails.
You’d be mad to miss it. Cully Fest tickets are all inclusive of activities*, are strictly limited and are on sale now. Early Birds will enjoy generous discounts off festival ticket prices right up until 30 November 2015.
