Seven West Media - RedFM is sponsoring Geraldton’s Wind on Water Festival 2019 after signing an “Everlasting Partnership” agreement with the City of Greater Geraldton.

Mayor Shane Van Styn said RedFM’s return as the WoW Fest concert sponsor would make it a “smashing success”.

“Thanks to RedFM’s generous support WoW Festival goers were able to rock out with The Veronicas and San Cisco at the first WoW Fest held in April this year,” he said.

“With negotiations underway to secure the headline and support acts for the 2019 event, the signing of an Everlasting Partnership with RedFM to present the concert couldn’t have been better timed.”

The Mayor said Seven West’s continuing partnership with the City for this Festival and other cultural initiatives helped make Geraldton a fantastic place to live.

Seven West Media’s Mid West Regional Manager Jason McCarthy said the WoW Fest sponsorship was a good fit for RedFM.

“We were very proud to be part of the first WoW Fest and in particular the concert,” he said.

“This is why we jumped at the opportunity to sponsor the event a second time as we know how much the community loves live music.”

In April 2018 more than 10,000 people from all over WA flocked to Geraldton Foreshore to take part in the inaugural two-day festival. The 2019 event will take place on April 20 and 21.

The event was born from two of Geraldton’s natural elements – wind and water, both of which play a key part in the City’s lifestyle and were chosen as the theme for the Festival.
