Melbourne based Promoters Peninsula Events Australia are proud to announce a major coo for local music fans, with the launch of the 1st Annual "Ampt" Festival. This unique, all ages, music festival will take part on Sunday 6th February within the grounds of the new (million dollar) Peninsula Theatre Complex in the beachside town of Mornington, located on the spectacular Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
Ampt originally started back in August 2004 with smaller monthly gigs being successfully staged on the Peninsula and due this, the event has now grown into a one day festival featuring a culmination of bands with various styles & genres ranging from rock, punk & metal, through to hardcore.
To launch the first year, the ampt festival will host 20 of Australia's freshest bands on 2 separate stages, including the "Pepsi Main Stage" presented by Blunt (Indoors) and the PBS 106.7FM Local Stage presented by the Mornington Peninsula Shire (Outdoors). Other Festivities on the day will also include an outdoor market and eatery, street performers and a "Skate Cage Comp" featuring some of Australia's Best Skateboarders competing on Peninsula Events Split Level Mini Ramp for $1,000 (Winner Takes All) Cold Hard Cash.
Scheduled Bands include
Behind Crimson Eyes
Famous by Association
Fortune in lies
Point of You
One Dead Dream
& 1 still to be announced
Unlike many other major festivals, ampt will be staged in a totally drug & alcohol free environment, which will also offer punters a much safer & hopefully more enjoyable concert going experience.
