Day tickets to seduce festival-goers
Another exciting feature of this year’s festival is the ability for patrons to purchase single-day tickets.
This therefore means that no matter where you are, be it the Tablelands or Cairns region or anywhere in between, you have the option of attending just one day of the festival, if that is your preference. .
“Our goal is to always increase the overall experience for our festival goers, so offering day ticket options caters to those who might just want to pick a particular day to see their favorite artist(s). ) to enjoy the festival,” Dein told Newsport.
A Friday ticket is just $89 and will give you access to performances by Shannon Noll, McAlister Kemp, King Stingray, The Buckleys, Tania Kernaghan, Gina Jeffries and more.
A Saturday ticket is just $129 and will get you performances by Jon Stevens, Vanessa Amorosi, The Black Sorrows, James Blundell and more.
A Sunday-only ticket is $149. This ticket will give you access to headliners Brad Paisley, James Johnston, Mackenzie Porter, Tex Perkins and more.
Shows not to be missed
Needless to say, the most anticipated performance at this year’s festival will be that of American country music star Brad Paisley.
With a country music career spanning over 20 years, Paisley has done it all throughout her journey in the industry.
Savannah festival goers will be delighted to hear hits like “Waiting On a Woman”, “If I Get Where I’m Going”, “Mud On The Tyres”, “Whiskey Lullaby” and other songs from the country crooner.
Paisley performs on the main stage on Sunday, October 2, starting at 9:30 p.m.
In just over two years, James Johnston has become one of Australia’s top country music artists. On the back of the hit “Raised Like That,” the humble singer continues to be destined for great things.
With Johnston set to move to Nashville at the start of the new year, festival-goers are expected to flock to the main stage to see him do his thing, before he becomes an even bigger name than he is now. .
Johnston performs on the main stage on Sunday, October 2, starting at 5 p.m.
One of the country’s best-known rockers, Jon Stevens, needs no introduction to local audiences.
Stevens is sure to knock the house down when he first visits Savannah.
Stevens performs on the main stage on Saturday, October 1, starting at 9:30 p.m.
Explore Tropical North Queensland
A festival like Savannah also gives patrons, whether local or highway-based, the chance to combine awesome music with, perhaps, a little exploration of the wonderful attractions the area has to offer.
“Our visitors always have the option of considering extending their stay at FNQ after the festival,” remarked Mark Olsen, Managing Director of Tourism Tropical North Queensland.
“They can consider seeing iconic local attractions like the Reef or Daintree, the iconic Tablelands and its beautiful waterfalls or even landmarks along the Savannah Way such as the Undara Lava Tubes and Cobbold Gorge.
“Events like Savannah in the Round are vital to regional dispersal, encouraging visitors to venture further into a destination to discover its hidden attractions.”
If you fancy a drink and want to travel easily and comfortably, a shuttle bus runs from Port Douglas to the festival. A season pass will set you back $115, while a one-day return shuttle is $40.
The Port Douglas Shuttle will depart daily at 1:00 p.m. from the Marina and make transfers to the Wildlife Habitat, Julatten School, Mount Molloy Hotel, Biboohra Roadhouse and arrive in Mareeba at 2:15 p.m. The return shuttle to Douglas will leave the festival each day at 12:00 a.m. and return at 1:15 a.m.
