COUNTRY music singer Adam Brand will gearing up to head to Brim on Friday for the Rock out for RARE concert.
Yarriambiack Shire Council, in partnership with Wimmera Uniting Care and a Brim steering committee, is co-ordinating the event for the AFL grand final public holiday at the Brim Recreation Reserve.
Brand said that it is a great time for everyone to get together while country towns were going through tough times.
“It’s good that we get together as mates and for everyone to realise they are not on their own,” he said.
“A community should get together and support each other.
“It’s going to be one hell of a party.”
This concert is exclusively to Brim and there is a camping sight available.
“I am totally pumped to be there, look out Brim,” Brand said.
Event organiser Emma Hynes said Brand and The Outlaws would headline the event, with support from The Lazy Farmer’s Sons, The Stumps and All We Need.
“Three-thousand lucky Wimmera residents will be able to attend the event for free thanks to funding from Wimmera Uniting Care’s Rural and Remote Engagement program,” she said.
Miss Hynes said food and drink would be available to buy and any money raised would go back to the groups operating as vendors.
“We’re also offering free camping at Reddas Park at Brim for those who want to stay the Friday night,” she said.
Gates open at 4pm and scheduled events will finish at 10pm.
