Want to see some of the biggest names in Australian rock music in Goondiwindi?

Well it's almost a "dead set cert" that it is going to happen this year thanks to Goondiwindi's own "Rock'n'Roll Outlaw", Boris Billing.

And if he gets his way, it will be the biggest musical event since Bob Geldof rocked the Plucked Duck B&S in 1993. And just maybe, even bigger. With some help.

Boris wants local businesses and "anyone who is keen to make this a success" to jump onboard as a sponsor. "To pull this off we have to get together to make it happen, but the pay off if we do...."

"I am confident that we can pull 5000 people for this event - and it will only get bigger. The amount of opportunities for local business over that period will be huge. "I've been to few festivals and many of those came along were in their 50s. They came with their caravans, disposable income and stayed in the region for two-three days, shopping, eating out, drinking, putting fuel in their cars, staying in caravan parks and motels and going on local tours.

"We are confident that this will be the biggest event we have ever held out here - and also that it will continue to be an annual event. Want to help? Ring Boris on on 0427 710 526. Here's what he has to say about the gig of the decade.

"Boris Billing here guys - and I am looking at bringing a music festival to Goondiwindi on October 26. I want to bring this event, with your help, to our wonderful town.

"The idea came to us when when (my wife) Helen and I attended a recent festival - the line-up was Boom Crash Opera, Pseudo Echo, Rose Tattoo, Baby Animals and James Reyne.

"We had an absolute blast! A great weekend. And, it's a great concept! It's potential name is 'Sounds From Border Town - Goondiwindi'."

Discussions are underway with some of the biggest names in the Australian rock industry. "We just can't give details just yet, but that won't be too far away."

"Any sponsor that contributes $2000 or more will also receive a VIP pass with access to the upstairs clubhouse, with VIP viewing, drinks and catering laid on. "There will be a promotion campaign on tv, radio, websites, facebook and newspapers...Your business will be on all of this promotion. Let's make it happen. Cheers!"
