Yorke Peninsula Council has been successful in gaining a $37,500 Federal Government grant for a music festival through the Building Better Regions Fund.
“The You RocK fEst will be a family-friendly and free festival, focussing on supporting and building the local music industry and raising awareness of mental health and wellbeing issues”, Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey said.
“Increasingly we are aware of the need to bring communities together and I’m confident this event will contribute to drawing tourists as well”, he said.
“I am pleased the Yorke Peninsula Council was successful in securing funding for their music festival,” Mr Ramsey said.
“The BBRF has delivered almost $4m in this current round to the electorate and will take the total delivered out of this program and its predessor to more than $40m since we came to government in 2013. It underlines our commitment to rural Australia.”
With around a third of this Australia wide $200m funding round set aside for tourism, it is pleasing that a number of groups within Grey have targeted that pool and been successful.” Mr Ramsey said
“Projects such as this make our regional communities even better places to live, work and raise families. I’m excited to see the positive out come from this grant.”
