A popular ‘local artist’s section at Horsham Country Music Festival will be at Horsham Soundshell at Sawyer Park this year.
The local artists segment, featuring home-grown country music talent from across the region, has traditionally been in Roberts Place in Horsham’s central business district.
Festival co-ordinator Lyall Wheaton said the unavailability of $2 all-day parking arrangements in place for previous festivals had prompted the move.
He said despite the shift from the area, patrons would now be able to experience regional talent on show on the big stage of the soundshell.
“There are a lot of talented artists from across the Wimmera and this is an ideal opportunity to let them showcase their skills,” he said.
The local artists segment will be between 10am and 3.30pm on the Friday of the festival and admission for this section of the program is free of charge.
This year 11 artists from across the Wimmera will each perform for 30 minutes.
Timetable: 10am,  2P’s from Horsham;
10.30am, Big Bad John, St Arnaud; 11am Christine Johnson, Stawell; 11.30am, Voices of the Wimmera, Horsham; noon, John Butcher, Warracknabeal; 12.30pm, Leo Tellefson, Donald; 1pm, Sandra Loats, Rupanyup; 1.30pm, Lawrance Country, Horsham; 2pm, Ron Pannan, Natimuk; 2.30pm, Robyn Norton, Serviceton; and 3pm Vanessa Warra, Hynes Reserve.
