A free Concert for Drought affected Communities | LithgowBlast
Lithgow City Council is very pleased to announce a live music event ‘Lithgow Blast: A Free Concert for Drought-affected Communities’, to take place at Blast Furnace Park, Lithgow, on Saturday 16th November, with music from 2:00pm.
Lithgow Blast is an alcohol-free all-ages event for young people and their families and features a smashing line up of stellar artists from across the musical spectrum.
Odette, The Delta Riggs, Yours Truly, Citizen Kay, Claude Hay and a slew of local emerging talent will tread the boards between 2pm and 9pm on the day, there’ll be food stalls, room for a picnic and a safe friendly space to let off some steam and dig some brilliant tunes.
NSW is experiencing one of the most severe droughts on record, with the Central West region one of the worst affected to date. There have been extreme low inflows (the amount of water entering the river and its storages) – the past six months have seen the lowest recorded inflows in history, making life very tough for many people living in the area, particularly families and young people.
Says Lithgow City Council representative Matthew Johnson,
“This free concert is being held for Lithgow’s young people and is part of Council’s programme of activities for communities affected by the drought. Drought relief is more than actions that directly relate to the land, it includes the celebration of community strength and the provision of festive occasions. Lithgow has never before seen such a line-up of great musicians, so put it in your diary and tell all your friends!”
To ease into the day and connect with the local surrounds, Lithgow Walk ‘n’ Talk for Life are leading a walk around Lake Pillans commencing at 1:30pm.
