The 2018 Broken Heel Festival was a huge success, organisers say

The annual Broken Heel Festival continues to go from strength to strength, with thousands of people from across Australia and overseas attending this year’s glamorous event.

Across the entire weekend there was more than 6500 people, which is up on previous years,  Festival director and managing director of the Palace Hotel Esther La Rovere said.

“We sold tickets from every state and we event had international guests,” Ms La Rovere said.

Some of the highlights during the three day Festival included the street parade where over 2000 people lined the main street.

“It just looked fantastic. We got some great coverage,” Ms La Rovere said.

Australian singer Christine Anu was the headline act for this year’s festival and a stronger cultural inclusion was celebrated with the announcement of a mentorship for young indigenous performers.

Overall organisers were “ecstatic” with how the 2018 event turned out,  Ms La Rovere said.

“Everyone in town – even if they didn’t participate in the Festival – the general vibe was positive,” she said.

Dates for the 2019 Festival were also announced and planning has already commenced, with September 13 to 15 locked in.

“A few artists want to return and we’ll be putting together a few great ideas,” Ms La Rovere said. 

Tickets are now on sale to the public for the 2019 Festival.
