AN INAUGURAL rock festival attracted about 1000 people to Horsham’s riverfront on Saturday.
Horsham Rockfest featured Shannon Noll, The Choirboys, Chantoozies, Paul Costa and Reece Mastin at the soundshell in Sawyer Park.
The rock festival marked the first time the park’s soundshell was hired out for a non-community event.
Horsham Rockfest organiser David Storer said the line-up put on a fantastic performance that was well received by event-goers.
The event was headlined by Australian Idol finalist Shannon Noll. Mr Storer said the headline act was a highlight, particularly when he performed Run to Paradise.
Mr Storer said Reece Mastin was a big hit on the day.
“The thing we say is forget everything you know about him because Reece Mastin is a real rocker these days,” he said.
Mr Storer said he would like to see the festival return to Horsham.
