Organisers of the Woytopia Sustainable Living Festival are holding a Christmas event, Club Woytopia, at the Everglades Country Club on December 15.
The night features local blues artists Johnny Devilseed and Old Man Rubes, and the Rhythm Hut’s Five Lands Band, as well as Latin jazz from the Ricky Vargas Group. Comedian Gemma Garner will host the night and DJ Mannschaft will round off the night with a selection of 70’s funk. The event is being organised by the Peninsula Environment Group. “After this year’s Woytopia Festival was cancelled, we partnered with Umina Beach Markets in November to put on a mini-festival day, which was a great success.
“But the market wasn’t suitable for some of the bands we had booked for Woytopia, so we’re also putting on this extra event, Club Woytopia,” said event manager Mr Mark Mann. “The performers involved were generous enough to reschedule for the new date,” he said. According to Mr Mann, the Club Woytopia evening was not an environmental event per se, but would help support the Woytopia Festival. “Club Woytopia will be purely and simply a fun night out with some great local music. “However, any income from the night will help cover some of our losses from the cancellation of the Woytopia Festival, which in turn will help us to keep running the festival in future.” Mr Mann said.
