ORGANISERS of a flood recovery concert in Rupanyup on Saturday hope to attract 1000 people to the event.
Co-ordinator Charee Bolwell said more than 400 people had already registered for When the Flood Came, featuring Australian music legend Russell Morris, The Audreys, Stonefield and Brodie Glen.
"People can still come along but it is great when we know about how many people to expect," she said.
"I think one of these things that comes out a lot when we talk to people is that they would like to see more live music.
"Why not enjoy a night of music when it is on your back door step and it is free."
Mrs Bolwell said the gates at Rupanyup Recreational Reserve would open at 4pm and the first band would perform at 4.30pm.
She said there would be catering and free children's activities, including face painting and a jumping castle.
Mrs Bolwell said all Wimmera people were invited to the event, organised by the Yarriambiack Shire Council.
"From our Facebook page and Twitter, the enthusiasm has been very infectious," she said.
"We have always said that the flood didn't just affect Rupanyup or the shire, so we want it to be a celebration of how we banded together."
Mrs Bolwell said buses to and from the event would not run due to a lack of interest.
