Summer Thrills was born from the idea of embracing the thrill of the Mildura summer.
Activating Tschirpig Lane in Mildura, the event involved a number of attached businesses to make it possible. This event was purely put on by, and for, the community.
20 volunteers, 6 sponsors and over $5,000 worth of in-kind support made this event a reality.
Over 250 attendees came along for a boogie, purchased merch and contributed to the good vibes amongst our diverse and wonderful community members!
Four generous bands travelled all the way from Melbourne to play for us:
- China Beach
- Karate Boogaloo
- Isabelle Skye
- Easy Browns
The event supported local creatives:
- Loughie Kemp a young art student produced projections across the laneway
- Walter Ison installed a creative performance space
- and brothers Khalil Nyabenda & Daniel Bukuru from the Burundian Community performed an uplifting and positive set of original music.
A new festival, with a new energy, on the Mildura cultural calendar.
