Blues Festival has purchased Tyagarah Ti Tree farms
We've heard from multiple sources that Peter Noble has bought the Ti Tree Farm.
We have to assume he isn't just talking about one or even two festivals a year, if that was all they wanted then the site owned by Splendor in Yelgun would have made sense. So its likely still to be regular loud events throughout the year.
Hopefully, it won't be easy - as we all know that site floods, in fact if the festival had been held there in 2006 then it would most likely have had to be evacuated as waters were rising. Whether the site actually flooded is irrelevant, unless Peter Noble is a better predictor of when a potential flood will turn into a real one than the people who lost their vehicles in the big flood a few years ago.
We know there will be traffic impacts, and major noise impacts -people who live in Myocum, Andersons Hill, east and west Tyagarah, Manse Lane, McAuley's Lane are all going to be listening to a melange of multiple stages on many nights of the year, putting up with people camping in their backyards, increased risk of fires and all the other impacts of greatly expanded festivals
