Evolve line-up announced

THE line-up for this year's Evolve festival has just been announced, with the list of talent set to make the festival an exciting one.

On the bill for the Evolution stage are comedy trio Tripod, ARIA award nominee and oud player Joseph Tawadro, Tecoma, the Northern Rivers Symphony Orchestra, Emily Burke of Opera Queensland, The Twoks and The Song Company. Tex Perkins and James Cruickshank will close the show.

Meanwhile, musical experimentalists Ronan/Ronan will be performing on the Revolution stage, along with cabaret noir masters Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, the sword-swallowing and spoon-bending Space Cowboy, hula-hooping sensation Jess Love, trapeze artist Miss Flea, and nunchakus-wielding dancers The Town Bikes.

The Spaghetti Circus will be providing high-flying entertainment with their outdoor trapeze, and roving entertainment and street-theatre artists will be entertaining those not already checking out the wide range of performing and visual arts or cinema.

Parents going to the festival need not worry about finding babysitters, with kids under 13 admitted free, and an allocated child-safe area.

Byron Bay KidzKlub will be keeping an eye on the juniors, with clay modelling, painting, beading, drawing and a play area to keep kids entertained.

The festival will be held at Red Devil Park in Byron Bay on October 4.

Early-bird tickets are on sale from www.evolveartsfestival.com.au, at $35 for ages 13 to 17 and $75 for adults.

Evolve will donate $1 from each adult ticket sold to Bay FM.

All proceeds from parking will be donated to St Finbarr's Primary School and Byron Bay High School.
