I also reckon we get John Course and Grant Smilie to play.

:lol:


all jokes aside - PBS and RRR get about 3% of that of the audience Nova does. If you are serious in reaching an audience and generating real awareness outside of the same old circles that WILL KNOW ABOUT THE GIG ANYWAY then why not step outside the comfort zone.


ooo... I work in the same building as Nova and Vega so I can certainly approach them in person if there isn't already a hot lead for them...

Cool, when I return from holiday... 9/01 I can visit them, I'll need some promo material. It doesn't have to be that soon but I'd like to assist if I can.

i'm doing PBS, RRR and JJJ, if everyone is cool with that. Well i have already sent email to PBS and RRR, and am waiting on the press release before approaching JJJ.


Though, Miss Bee, you want to handle JJJ if you have contacts there? Cos i was going in as an outside on that one.

given you have a nice long lead time due to brb's organisation - it really opens up who you can approach ... monthly magazines etc who can give it some nice glossy coverage.

I hope hitting up Nova doesn't mean that that Kate Langbroek will be turning up

That is all

If and when someone can provide me with the full details for the Fire Aid event(s), I'll be able to get one done. :)

From what I understand, the acts etc are not confirmed as yet.

Brb gunna update this on the weekend, but release is almost ready, dam its good!

Of cource that means I didnt write it.... I just did the spell check :wink:

This thing is shaping up to be so dam awesome, so proud to be a part of it and the whole melbourne is awesome thing.

Fi - Raffle assistance would be ace... leftovers are grand too.

On the all ages thing, the outside part of Miss L's being outside and all, do you have to be over 18 to be in there?? Maybe cos its outside that gives kids the opp to come down on the sunday... if they stay outside? I dunno, im just guessing. 8)

I had an awesome meeting with the owners of Miss Libertine on Friday night and the Press Release is just about done.
All I need to finish it is a quote from a spokesperson from each of the charities.
D-Boy is already in contact with the C.F.A and I have the mobile numbers of the people from Wildlife Victoria.
It looks like we may have a couple of MAJOR sponsors for this too! JPS & the owners of Miss L are talking to a couple of VERY generous companies who are keen on the idea. I won't name them now in case it doesn't happen.

In the next day or so the Press release will be finished and I'll send it to absolutely everyone so they can pass it on to anyone they know in ANY kind of media (no matter how small or big)

I'll start PM'ing all the people who have offerred help

I think this is gonna be MASSIVE

Awesome stuff Glenny :D

Happy to do Triple J as well, as i have not heard from Miss Bee if she is covering them or not?

Nice one Liz!

I think Lucie knows Nicole Foote at JJJ and has offered to pass it on to her and word her up about it.

Sorry chicks - my contact is Nicole as well :)

Also, I can have a chat to the guys at Destra to see if you can get some promo space on their sites (tranzfusion, TS, JB Hifi and Harvey Norman, etc, etc)

I highly doubt that Virgin would donate flights.

We're pretty happy with the breaks lineup, it's the Live hip-hop acts that have not come to the party. They're just not interested :?

we also need some Live Jazz bands to play on the balcony on Sunday arvo if anyone knows any jazz musicians?

Sweet.. thought there might be some break in there but all good. Guessin i'll be there saturday nite :)

So who else is goin? Better be every single person on here!
By the way my old lady who's a volunteer for the CFA and was fighting the fires last year said this is such a good idea and she hopes it all goes well. Big ups to the fireys and lets raise them a shitload of cash!

Just a curiosity thing: does anyone have an idea/goal in their heads of how much will be raised this weekend??

I've got absolutely no idea at all, but I reckon it'd be fun to try estimate how big/successful the fundraising will be.

My 'out of thin air' guess is $5000.

Will there be a way to make donations at the venue and receive a receipt for tax purposes?

I'll donate something.. but was just wondering if you were going to have an obvious way at the venue (besides the entry fee) for people to donate money.
A donation box or something..
