New Aussie Music Festival Announced Featuring Icehouse
Who is Trevor? That’s the question posed by the organisers behind a brand new music festival that’s being staged at Philip Island in January 2013
Turns out Trevor is actually the name of the same music festival, complete with a fully booked lineup, a gourmet selection of food devour, and a kid-friendly environment.
“Music, Food and Family; it’s like a holy trinity…” explains Nick Say, co-producer of the music festival “…and that’s what Trevor’s all about. We want to make sure that parents are relaxed and kids are exhausted by the end of the day – hopefully meaning a nice sleep in for mum and dad the following morning!”
How so? Well, music-lovers with children getting the advantage of little tackers under the age of 12 getting free entry. Not only that, but the festival will be handing out complimentary showbags to entertain the kids, as they sift through a “massive armful of vouchers, gifts and revelling in the huge array of things to do,” details Say.
Just who can mum and dad rock out to while all this is going on? ICEHOUSE have been announced as the headliners of the new music festival, along with the likes of ASH GRUNWALD, THE BAMBOOS, SWEET JEAN, THE BROW HORN ORCHESTRA and PIERCE BROTHERS.
To go with the sonic delights, Trevor Festivals co-creator, Paul Stafford is a professional chef and will provide the festival with an amazing array of culinary selections.
“Food is so often overlooked at music festivals but it’s vital in creating an amazing experience that people won’t forget. We want everyone to remember the paella as much as hearing Icehouse play ‘Great Southern Land’ as the sun sets over Churchill Island,” explains Stafford.
The press release also tease “enormous pans of Paella will be matched with a zingy Sangria, delicious lamb shanks washed down with a cold beer and slow cooked pork shoulder will be piled with an Asian slaw and rolled in light, flaky pastry.” Salivating yet?
The festival organisers are also taking a strong eco-friendly approach to their festival site location on Churchill Island, “we’re asking all vendors to reduce their waste, to use bio-degradable or recycled packaging wherever possible… We’ve got a ‘leave it as you find’ it approach to the Island, and hopefully, leave it even better,” say Trevor organisers.

THE BROW HORN ORCHESTRA
There’s a hell of a lot at stake when performing at a festival – potentially the biggest crowd of an artist’s career, being pitted against nature’s elements, sound and lighting that could go wrong at any moment. There’s the pressure to blow the act after you off stage, there’s the pressure to live up to hype and show that you are capable of pulling off a show on a massive stage. Mnay acts have come a cropper when trying to do this but many have risen to the occasion; the adrenaline and the massive crowds either overcoming them or proving that they are capable of being one of the best bands in the world. Join us as we count down some of the best festival performances ever. Watch this slideshow »
