Promoters of the Classic Hits concert hope to stage the event again next year.
Up to 2000 people poured into the Goulburn Workers Arena on Saturday for a big line-up of entertainment from the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s.
Swanee, the Choirboys, Ross Wilson, Glenn Shorrock, Pseudo Echo, 1927, The Radiators, Grant Walmsley, Dragon were just some of the Australian rock acts on stage at the Goulburn Workers Arena on Saturday. They had the crowd up and dancing and singing along to popular numbers such as ‘Are You Old Enough’ and April Sun in Cuba.’
Forever Classic 2GN presented the concert in conjunction with the Goulburn Workers Club.
Empire Touring promoter Marc Christowski said the community was “crying out” for such an event.
“There’s been nothing like it in recent time,” he said on Friday.
“All the artists jumped at the chance to play at an outdoor venue. Ross Wilson is absolutely pumped.”
Mr Christowski said the music appealed to a certain age group but his agency might look at staging a concert for youth in the future.
Numbers were limited to 2000 this year to ensure everyone could fit comfortably and to manage traffic.
People came prepared with fold up seats and blankets and took advantage of onsite food stalls, bars, tea and coffee vendors.
Organisers called on local firms to supply food, drinks and supplies such as marquees and generators.
Tight security was on hand to ensure no one brought alcohol into the venue.
But the event went off without a hitch and created an upbeat vibe.
“We want to establish an annual event and everyone is very keen,” Mr Christowski said.
