Putting 3 recycled local acts on NYE and trying to sell tickets to young punters is hardly 'bold and unique'.

World Class ? LOL you stick 3 local, recycled rubbish acts on and expect ticket sales in the most boring place on earth ? Watching nine networks coverage of the fireworks with some black label and an ipod dock would be far more fun.

Oh yeah, but in my opinion mostly it's bad timing (as someone actually mentioned earlier in the post).
I mean, if you're setting up the festival on New Year's eve, you'd better have a stellar line up... Simple as that, really.

If they had put this about three weeks after uni first got back, I reckon they'd have had more luck. With so many good NYE festivals (Pyramid, Falls, SummerFieldayze, Subsonic and Peats Rydge) the market is simply not there for it.

Not to mention Foreshore and Summer Rhythm in the 2 months before it.

New Years is the prime time when people are willing to travel to festival/celebrate... If I was a Canberran and wanted a NYE festival, I'd get the hell outta there.

Destined for failure...
All ages festival with an ordinary lineup. In Canbrah. On NYE.

They would've had more kangaroos than payers.

Foreshore sells out every year, and Summer Rhythm is going ahead. I'd say it's more a line-up issue than a "Canberra" issue. Also poster was horrible and 16 age limit didn't help.
