After a good response last year, “Get Your Blues On” will be coming back to the city soon.

Organisers, Mildura Entertainment, said last year’s show attracted about 300 people to the event held at the racecourse.

Mildura Entertainment’s David Storer was he hoping for the same or more this time around.

“We had good support last year,” he said. “Everyone who attended raved about the event.

“People were able to see, first hand, how we run an event which is like an outdoor dinner and show.

“We are hoping to get even more people this time.

“It’s a great opportunity to listen to some great music, enjoy some food and have a drink.”

The festival will be held at the Broken Hill Golf Course on the green in front of the first tee.

“It will be greener with better views and we will be able to utilise the balcony,” David said. “People can book tables for six to ten people.”

Tickets are available at the Mulga bottle shop.

Performing at the event will be Melbourne headliner Shaun Kirk, Melbourne duo Miss Whiskey, Geelong trip Dogs Gone South and Mildura bands Daddeos and Old Dog New Tricks.

“It’s going to be a really great atmosphere, we are hoping for over 300 people,” David said.

“We are confident we can get that because so many people loved it last year.

“We encourage everyone to get along and support it so we can continue to bring events like these to Broken Hill.”

The festival will be on May 6 from 3pm and tickets cost $35.
