Indent Tour- A sell out event

Indent Regional Tour with Jinja Safari
A huge success!

Gosford had a SOLD OUT Event at The Youth Arts Warehouse on Dec 7th 2012 and the night was a blast with over 300 people smiling, dancing & having an awesome time. See Images

The 2012 Indent regional NSW tour starring jungle-pop quintet Jinja Safari proved to be Indent’s most successful tour to date. Spanning 6 shows over 3 weekends and a variety of different venues of all sizes, the shows were held in everything from youth centres and town halls to a local high school.

“It has been such a thrill seeing the tour go from strength to strength. We’ve really built on the solid foundations of the 2010 and 2011 Indent tours” said Chris Zajko, Indent’s Project Manager, “It’s been a real privilege to work with such enthusiastic, motivated and professional young people, without which, none of this would have been possible!”

Attendance was at an all-time high - Byron Bay attracted the largest number of people at nearly 400, Gosford’s Youth Arts Warehouse sold out of all 300 tickets, and a total of over 1,400 people attended across the whole tour!

2012’s support band program brought together acts such as Byron Bay’s Potato Potato, triple j favourites Sons of Alamo in Gosford and Gadigal Records-signed MC Dukebox spitting rhymes in Inverell, along with a throng of promising up-and-comers in each town. For all supports, the tour provided a fantastic opportunity to liaise with a professional production manager, sound and lighting expert, and offered a chance to play in front of hundreds of people.

The pre-tour workshops run in August provided the perfect springboard for the success of each show. Each of the venues was thoroughly assessed, roles were defined and provided for each member of the youth event teams and lessons in event management, booking bands, event production and promotion were delivered to each of the teams.

With a venue checklist, event timeline and worksheets sent out in advance, learning skills in event management and music business was a specific focus for all young people involved.

The ‘In Conversation with Jinja Safari’ Q&A sessions held in conjunction with APRA also proved to be a great success. Over 30 young people attended the session in each town, listening to Jinja Safari’s tales of touring overseas, the functionalities of a manager and a booking agent and ways in which to attract them, whilst young artists also gained an understanding of ways in which to promote their music to major media outlets.

A huge thank you and congratulations to all involved!
