Who can’t WAIT to hear ThirstyMerc at the 2020 Big Summer Blow Out

The biggest event on the February calendar is without doubt, the Big Summer Blow Out.

Rainbow Beach Sports Club are the hosts and Nathan (Kroppy) and wife Marnie are the organisers, along with Matt Smith from Thirsty Merc.

Kroppy and Marnie said: “The idea started with Country at the Beach last year when we talked about it with the guys from Thirsty Merc, who said they wanted to do an Aussie Rock Concert in the area and asked us if we were keen.

“So we had a day out fishing and by the end of the day we had a line-up that changed a few times but which included Daryl Braithwaite, Wendy Matthews, Dragon, Thirsty Merc, Reece Mastin, Caitlyn Shadbolt and Valentina Brave.

“Between the sports club and the surf club we don’t ask for sponsorship, we just want the businesses in the town to be open and serve the people who come into town for the event – this one is for the businesses.

“Our businesses won’t survive without tourism and visiting family and friends, and it’s about communicating and collaboration and all pulling together for the town.”

“There will be food vendors, licensed bar, free water, jumping castle for kids and plenty of security.”

There are no door sales – all tickets must be pre purchased. Tickets are $75 and under 14s are only $5. Tickets are available from trybooking.com

VIP tickets are $330 for a single or $3000 for a table of 10 and that includes a beer, wine and a canape package for three hours.

Gates open at 12, music from 12.30, show closes with Darryl Braithwaite, doors close at 9.15pm.

Kroppy said: “Country at the Beach is the first week-end of summer and the Big Summer Blow Out is the closing weekend – put it on your calendars.”
