Live music fans will get a taste of country music with the Savannah in the Round concert taking place in Mareeba over the October long weekend (1-3). As a precursor to the Mareeba event, the promoters of the Savannah in the Round, Sound Australia have decided to put on a pool party in Cairns.

Calling it the Savannah in The Round - Pool Party, the two-day event will take place around the pool on April 23 and 24 at the Novotel Oasis Resort in Cairns.

On the Friday Night there will be poolside live music entertainment from 2pm to 10pm, featuring local, intrastate and interstate artists and headliners Thirsty Merc, playing around the pool.
On Saturday the 24th once again there will be poolside live music entertainment from midday to 10pm, featuring local, intrastate and interstate artists including country music superstar Adam Brand who said he can’t wait to play around the pool.

“I love the idea that people will be floating past on lilos drinking cocktails,” he said.

“I may even have to join them in the pool for a cocktail myself.

“Last year I did a concert from the bow of a big boat in WA and people were on boats and jet skis and lilos and I loved it.”

Adam said he will be bringing his full band to play around the pool.

“When they heard it was a pool party in Cairns, they said we are in! I couldn’t stop them if I wanted too.”

Director of Sound Australia James Dein said they were running the two events to help the Far North economy. “We are hoping to attract out of region visitors to the Far North and to promote Savannah in the Round, the main event in Mareeba on October 1-3,” he said.

“Guests in rooms and 400 additional patrons who are not staying at Novotel will have the opportunity to join the party on each night on the Friday and Saturday.”

James said the event came about after the Novotel Management attended the Summer Series events in October last year and saw the opportunity to run a live music Pool party at their Hotel. 

“Savannah in the Round already has a partnership with the Accor Hotel Group, and we had always planned another smaller Summer Series before the main event in October 2021 in Mareeba. It was a natural discussion.”

 “This is the only other Pre Savannah in the Round show before the main event on October 1- 3 in Mareeba.

 “It’s all about 2 days of live music and cocktails around the pool.”
