2006 AUSTRALIAN FESTIVAL
The 2006 Australian Festival was the last held in Nashville, TN on September 14th to 17th. Celebrating the 10th anniversary, this was the biggest and best yet! With musical performances, food, sports, vendors, and culture.
Music artists included: Colin Hey (Men at Work), Melbourne; The Bushwackers, Sydney; Dobe Newton, Sydney; James Bundell, Sydney; Janine LeClair, Perth; Kylie Harris, Hamilton NZ; Lewis Burns, Dubbo; Luke O'Shea, Sydney; Megan Laurie, Tamworth; Neil Murray, Western Victoria; Paul Killingly, Whitsundays; Pru Clearwater, Sydney and Nashville; Simon Bruce, Melbourne; Stephen Rowe, Sydney.
The weather was great. The attendance was huge.
I no longer support the Australian Festival due to it's move to Florida. One of the worst decisions ever made since the festival was founded. Click here to read my open letter. This tells the story. Feel free to send me comments.
Below is the video and pictures I shot at the 2006 festival.
