    Do festivals ever come back to life?

    I believe it will be back for 2018, chatting to somebody at the Genny on Australia Day apparently they left organising it 'a little too late' for this year. Anyway that's all I 'know'......

    What a shame, a few good summer events help boost visitor numbers and the extra revenues add to the prosperity of mountain businesses.

    An event that they have done multiple times in the past got left 'a little too late'. Yeah right. LOL

    Has anyone heard if this festival is likely to come back this summer?

    They've announced the band line up. So fingers crossed, it's going ahead.
    It's on facebook under Cool Summer Festival.
    Too hard to post the link from work...

    Posters are up at The General - looks like it's happening. I think it said band list pending.

    FWIW : a shame it's not over the Oz Day weekend. It would get a lot more attendees on a 3 day break.

    Can only assume Hotham / org wants to eek out the events & visitors over a number of weekends rather than the all or nothing approach??

    More like the bands would have better offers over that weekend.

    Need to be realistic about who this festival can pull to perform and when.
