Greenfest Program Launch concert Sunday 26 April 2009 10am to 1pm

PLEASE NOTE: This event was originally scheduled for 5 April 2009. Due to heavy rain in Brisbane and continued heavy rain forecast through to Sunday , we have to advise the planned free concert and program launch will be postponed until Sunday April 26th. ****

Come and enjoy Australia’s leading new band The Boat People and family favourite Bunna Lawrie for free at the Greenfest 2009 program launch, as part of the Brisbane City Council’s community fair this Sunday 26th April 2009.
We have just received great support directly from the Director of the United Nations Environment Program, Achim Steiner. Read his letter encouraging the people of Brisbane to support World Environment Day at Greenfest and congratulating all those involved. View letter.
