So last week before I was struck down with the sickness, I mentioned I had a big meeting on the Monday night. I also mentioned it went rather well. It went so well in fact that I’m super excited to reveal to you guys for the first time ever the Garterbelts & Gasoline Nostalgia Festival will have an official blogger – and I am it!
You may remember hearing about my awesome antics at the festival earlier this year which I blogged about here. The Event Director, Paul Biagini saw my post and published it as a 7-page feature in issue #130 of Cruzin Magazine and then went on to send it overseas to the editor of Pinstriping & Kustom Graphics Magazine (an International magazine based in the UK) where it was published in issue #28.
I will also be the Assistant Pin Up Coordinator in the lead up to and on the Saturday night of the festival, making sure all the entrants of the Pin Up Competition are organised, looked after and feeling glamorous and confident. Bringing in a veteran for this type of role is always helpful because my past experience means I can easily relate to how the girls will be feeling and I’m really looking forward to being there for them to make sure it is a fun, positive and empowering experience – as it should be!
Through the festival’s social media channels and this blog, I’ll be promoting the festival and will be sharing all the updates as they happen, including band line-ups, application cut-offs, ticket sales and all the practical info that knowing beforehand makes attending the festival easy and guarantees you a good time. What this means for you guys is that from time to time I’ll do a bit of an update post on here so you can keep up to date with all the happenings of the festival. It also means that when the festival comes around, you’ll get the official recap before it even hits the press!
Next year, the festival will run from the 4th – 7th of May and you can check out the website at http://www.garterbeltsandgasoline.com.au/
