An awesome grass roots festival is growing in Bellingen called Local M.A.D.E. which aims to showcase local talent. It means Local Music.Arts.Dance.Extravaganza! Now in it's third year Local M.A.D.E. boasts 3 stages and acts such as King Tide, The Nomad & Morganics..
STOP PRESS!! Local M.A.D.E.NESS is going to be the biggest yet! Next show is at the Bellingen Showgrounds on Saturday April 9th. Set to get everyone dancing, inspire the kids and draw a crowd to showcase our local talent are none other than KING TIDE, THE NOMAD and MORGANICS!! They will also be doing great workshops sponsored by “Drink? Don’t Sink” in the week leading up to this insane event which will be the highlight of Nat...ional Youth Week for Bellingen. This year we are honouring the traditional owners of the land with the Jumbaal Dreamin’ Dancers along with a Smoking Ceremony. Leo Barcala (LB Rigging) and Craig Richardson (Any Entertainment) remain on board again by providing two MASSIVE stages with sound, lighting and sets to match any major festival you’ve ever been at! The Reverb Stage (sponsored by Reverb Magazine) will be entirely youth run, from production to performance and set design and will feature artists chosen by our local young guns team.
Amongst the dance action again will be Jazz and BBoy Yogi with some serious hot moves and workshops to inspire all. Last year we cleared 500 people, this year we have a super sweet grant from the NSW Better Futures program through Bowraville’s Miimi Aboriginal Corporation and the "Drink? Don't Sink!"
Project which is funded by the Local Government Association of NSW and Shires Association of NSW under the Healthy Communities Initiative. Can you imagine what we can do with that in addition to the $16,000 worth of in-kind support from LB Rigging, Nambucca Temporary Fence Hire, Any Entertainment and Mid-Coast Printing?! It’s going to be a complete blast and you’re invited, this is Local M.A.D.E. and it is indeed made by you, so come make your festival!!
