VETERAN promoter James Dein says his attention has now switched to delivering an exceptional Savannah in the Round festival following the success of the lead-up two-day pool party event at Cairns Novotel. 

Hundreds of festival goers from Cairns, Mareeba and around the region watched headliners Thirsty Merc, Adam Brand and others from their hotel balconies, and in and around the facility’s main pool with Dein labelling the inaugural Las Vegas style event a “wonderful success”.

“We really couldn’t have asked for more. The festival goers seemed to have loved the concept of enjoying live music from the pool, add some great food stalls and tasty cocktails and you had the absolute most perfect two days,” he said. 

“The light rainfall didn't deter patrons one bit – everyone had a wonderful time.”

Dein is not resting on his laurels though with the ever-busy promoter already back on the job and working on logistics and planning matters for Savannah in the Round. 

“We visited Mareeba a few days ago where we conducted a walk-through of the venue with stakeholders about how Kerribee Park will look as a festival site when it stages the event later in the year,” Dein said. 

“We also looked at power and sound matters too, as well and chatted with the Mareeba rodeo executive about how we can work even more closely together to deliver a wonderful festival later this year.”
