A TV film crew today enjoyed a sneak peek at the mystery star of the South Burnett’s upcoming Tractor Tattoo arts and music festival.
The crew, from Channel 7’s The Great South East, filmed segments about the festival at the Visitor Information Centre in Kingaroy and in the Town Hall forecourt area.
They learned about the Funky Teapots crafted as part of an RADF-funded workshop, experienced the “yarn bombing” of a working tractor, and even met the mechanical star of the Tattoo – the percussive tractor which has been crafted especially for the occasion.
The Tractor Tattoo concert will be held on September 15 in the Kingaroy Town Hall forecourt, the culmination of a string of activities throughout the region focussing on tractors.
The South Burnett Regional Council – with the assistance of Creative Regions – has secured $97,000 in Federal and State arts grants to stage the music and visual arts festival.
For more information about the Festival, see the Council’s website
The Tractor Tattoo segment on The Great South-East will be broadcast on September 9.
