Mick Lindsay to headline 20th Annual Dirt n Dust Festival



High energy country musician Mick Lindsay will headline the 20th Anniversary of the Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival next April it was announced today (4 October, 2013).

Lindsay filmed the music video for Crank It at the annual Dirt n Dust Festival in 2011 and says he is looking forward to returning to his favourite Outback event, hopefully with his long-awaited debut album in hand.

 "I've been busy writing songs and speaking with producers this year and really hope to have the album finished and ready for release before next year's Dirt n Dust Festival," said Lindsay.

"The Dirt n Dust Festival is a great platform for showcasing everything my band and I can do and, if all goes to plan, it will play a big part in launching the next step of my career.

"I love the crowd that turns up to Julia Creek every year and the atmosphere is second to none. Everyone who's there is there to have a good time and that's really important because every gig is 50 per cent the performer and 50 per cent the crowd. It doesn't matter who you are, a good audience will always be the difference between a good show and an unforgettable show," Lindsay said.

President of the Dirt n Dust Festival, Stephen Malone said he looks forward to welcoming Lindsay back to Julia Creek.

"Mick has performed at Dirt n Dust twice already and has stamped himself in the hearts of many of our regular Festival-goers," said Mr Malone.

"When it came to choosing a musician for our 20th celebrations, Mick was a no-brainer. He has a diverse musical repertoire and can shift effortlessly between country, rock and pop to get the crowd dancing and keep them dancing."
