The Wind on Water Festival 2019 is well on its way to being another smashing success following the signing of an Everlasting Partnership agreement with Seven West Media - RedFM to sponsor the concert component.
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn was very pleased to see RedFM return as the WoW Fest concert sponsor.
“Thanks to RedFM’s generous support WoW Festival goers were able to rock out with The Veronicas and San Cisco at the first Wow Fest held in April this year,” he said.
“With negotiations underway to secure the headline and support acts for the 2019 event, the signing of an Everlasting Partnership with RedFM to present the concert couldn’t have been better timed.
“The fact Seven West Media continues to partner with the City with this Festival and other arts and cultural initiatives is helping make the City a fantastic place to live and is exactly what the Everlasting Partnership program is all about.”
Seven West Media’s Midwest Regional Manager Jason McCarthy said the WoW Fest sponsorship is a good fit for RedFM.
“We were very proud to be part of the first WoW Fest and in particular the concert which is why we jumped at the opportunity to sponsor the event a second time as we know how much the community loves live music,” he said.
In April 2018, more than 10,000 people from all over the state flocked to the Geraldton Foreshore to take part in the inaugural two-day festival. The 2019 event will take place on 20 and 21 April 2019.
The event was born from two of Geraldton’s natural elements – wind and water, both of which play a key part in the City’s lifestyle and were chosen as the theme for the Festival.
