Exhibit (a) I give you Easter in Ballarat. Here we have not music festivals - like Apollo Bay, Mortlake, Mildura, Meredith or the Town That Makes Us Shelbyville, Bendigo.
We have a special festival that's even better than live, living culture and artists belting it out to a beat that makes the kids dance.
We have the Sonrise festival.
Just to clarify:
Bendigo = Paul Kelly, Augie March, Tim Rogers, Tex Perkins/Charlie Owen/James Curickshank & Matheson
