None of the Echo drudges assembled on Wednesday night to celebrate the rising of a Blood Moon realised its portents or that it was in fact a ‘wine red’ moon.

In return from those minutes away from their desks, they will be beavering away all weekend to bring you comprehensive reports of Bluesfest.

On a more serious note, the Echonetdaily website will be undergoing some essential maintenance during Saturday and Sunday. This should not affect your browsing enjoyment but, if it does, rest assured it is merely temporary.

Take care and drive safely over the weekend. Traffic is already building up on our roads.

Look for our special ‘Best of Bluesfest’ newsletter in your inboxes tomorrow.

Enjoy your Easter break.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
