Gympie, Australia
Rush Festival returns in 2017 with an awesome rock line-up. In celebration of Gympie’s 150th birthday (G150), Aussie Rock legend Jimmy Barnes will headline this year’s concert.
Jimmy Barnes is the heart and soul of Australian rock ‘n roll. His nickname “Barnesy” conjures up images of rock music at an ear-splitting volume – both as a solo artist and the lead singer of Cold Chisel – as well as soul standards given a unique reading. Over his 40+ year career, Jimmy has been through it all, and lived to tell the tale which he did in his bestselling memoir, Working Class Boy, and is about to do it again with a second volume, Working Class Man, due for release later this year. Along the way, Jimmy has sold more records in Australia than any other domestic rock ‘n’ roll artist and his live shows are legendary for their intensity.
Jimmy will be supported by some of Australia’s rock icons including The Black Sorrows, The Voices (Jason Singh, Reece Mastin, Katie Underwood, and Paul Gray), and local artists Brooke Schubert and TotoSenda.
As a special G150 gift, General Admission is only $10 and children 12 & under free. Gates open at 3pm, for a 4.30pm start. Rides, food and drinks, and a licensed area will be available.
