GET in the gate and don't be late is the advice from Donna Ballard, event coordinator of this weekend's Wingham Akoostik Music Festival.
"The first 100 festival goers through the gate of this year's Akoostik Festival will receive an Akoostik Goodie Bag packed with great value from our festival sponsors," Donna said.
"Tickets are selling online and through local outlets, however we always get a rush at the gates on the day.
"We are also encouraging festival-goers to book their campsite now as space is limited and filling up fast."
This year's festival features an official opening event, from 6pm at the Wingham Showgrounds tonight. Open to all who love listening to the acoustic sounds of choirs, it's just a gold coin donation for entry.
Donna reminded people to try the Akoostik's Top Ten things to do:
o Hear the wonderful choirs, maybe even participate in the free workshop with acclaimed choral conductor Rachel Hore;
o Relax with some yoga at sunrise;
o Learn circus skills under the 'Little Top';
o Make some wacky wax dipping candles;
o Not a singer? But a swinger? Join in the golf day;
o Enjoy the yummy food;
o Browse the market stalls;
o Join the campfire singalongs whilst camping or caravanning at Wingham Showground;
o Pose for a photo with the artists, up close and personal at the merch tent;
o Soak up the atmosphere with a diverse range of musical genres.
Tickets range from just $15 to $45 per day and are available online http://www.oztix.com.au/ or Manning Valley Visitor Information Centre, Leading Edge Music Taree, Movies Games and More Taree and Bent on Life in Wingham.
