The good people of Kohinur Hall NYE are excited about this year’s offering. Opening all night, this is going to be a party that takes punters right through to 2014.

The festivities begin at 6pm with Welcome to Country and local didgeridoo outside in the gorgeous forest setting.

Local resident, musician and peace activist Pico will lead all who wish to participate in a short but inspired Meditation for Peace (some cushions provided, but feel free to BYO).

With so much going on in the world, outside our incredible rainbow shire, what better way to start a new year than to share some love and healing energy with the rest of the planet.

At 7pm the music begins and features Pico & Robynn, Mikey Nomad, KOZI (Japan), POB (including New Year countdown), ShortCircuit, Strawberry Syme, BeauFUNK DJ, Magu and DJ Jules. Lighting and SFX will be artfully provided by Aleyshia Manning of AMP (Aleyshia Manning Productions) assisted by Min (Myrrah Creations).

Together they share well over four decades in the business. All-night catering will be provided by Corrina and crew from Belly-lishas from the kitchen and outdoor chai tent.

Anyone willing to volunteer or help out on the night please call Min on 6684 5025.

Doors open at 5.30pm. Tickets $25 at the door/gate.
