Festival to start earlier

The Students for Environmental Action (SEA) group has made a major change to its annual Organic Festival.

Co-president Janet Young said the event, to be held on Saturday, would begin at 7pm, much earlier than in previous years.

"We are dedicating two hours specifically to visiting the stalls, with light music playing in the background.

We want people to have a night out, but we also want to encourage communication and conversation for people to understand more about organics, before they enjoy the bands we have."

The event, which has previously attracted up to 600 people, will be held at Sammy's Entertainment Venue in Crawford St.

The night brings together organic food, drinks, community groups and local music.

Each $5 ticket purchased includes one free organic beer or glass of wine, along with free nibbles.

Local acts, including the Julian Temple Band, DJ Manick and Entropy Trio, will feature.
