Gerringong Winery Announces Easter Music Festival
Crooked River Wines has taken advantage of the disappointment of having to postpone its ‘Stomping of the Grapes’ music festival to next month due to the pandemic to create another major event over the Easter long weekend.
ARIA Award winners Amy Shark and Missy Higgins headline a new three-day event that opens Saturday, April 16.
Crooked River’s Joe Felice said Shark would take the stage on Easter Sunday with Higgins closing “Unwind in the Vines” on Easter Monday.
“It’s a brand new festival that we’ve introduced.
“We are really excited to present huge headlines on the beautiful South Coast.
“I can’t remember the last time Amy Shark would have played here on the South Coast, I don’t even think she ever did, that’s a massive draw card,” he said. he declares.
With the winery previously hosting many successful outdoor events, Felice said the new festival will generate significant dollars for the local economy.
“Our festivals, if they last two days, normally put about $1.5 million back into the local economy.
“It is with customers who have additional expenses with cafes, restaurants and accommodation.
“It’s a huge boost for tourism.
“It’s a huge boost for Kiama and around Kiama.
“Everything to bring small businesses back because obviously they’ve been through a lot given the pandemic,” Felice said.
