A leisurely walk from the Palais Theatre along the foreshores to Point Ormond then back to the Palais Theatre for a family day of fun and live entertainment.
Live production crew are the unseen but essential backbone of the music events that we all enjoy, but these roles can often take their toll on those involved.
The aim of Roady4Roadies is to bring public awareness to the diverse range of highly technical and creative skills required to make our dreams to come true, and raise desperately needed funds to help those in crisis.
The day commences with the inaugural Roady4Roadies Walk, a leisurely stroll from the Palais Theatre along the foreshores to Point Ormond then back to the Palais Theatre for a family day of fun and entertainment. The sign-in time starts at 10:30am. Walkers depart in groups of 30, at 5 minute intervals or 100m apart from 10.30am-11.20am. Walk participants receive a free t-shirt, laminate & lanyard, water & sunscreen provided along the way.
Family day activities begin 1.00pm. There's a BBQ and Crewathlon, a fun & friendly competition for teams of roadies, with events including the Cable Comp, Stage Manager Sprint, Lighting Crew Limbo and Sound Crew Shimmy! The day concludes with awards, prizes, speeches and live entertainment featuring Mark Seymour, Dave Graney & the mistLY, J.R. Reyne, Sisters Doll & Jarosite. Doors open at 12.30pm, with show starting at 12.40pm and running through to 3.20pm.
Roady4Roadies is being staged by a voluntary team of Australia's leading live production personnel and industry professionals. All proceeds go directly to Support Act.
