As was once famously quoted by John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) - 'there should be no difference between who is on stage & who is in the audience' and as such becoming a catalyst for the ideology behind the inception of Australia's most famous antipodean festival event, now known as Homebake Music & Arts Festival.
And so Ladies & Gentlemen, with such a profound introduction, it's time to once again announce this nation's biggest local all star event as we celebrate our 15th anniversary via a great big birthday bash featuring a massive array of the most popular, talented and eclectic artists past, present and future whom have conquered this vast land of ours as well as many nations worldwide. Yes folk, its coming and it’s...
HOMEBAKE 2009 - THE FIFTEENTH ANNIVERSARY!
Fifteen anniversaries can virtually be regarded as a lifetime in any event life cycle – and it's especially true when the focus is entirely based on local (Australian & New Zealand) artistic talent alone. However, those 15 Homebake's have witnessed major international success for many of our featured musicians (& actors). So, in true celebratory style, Homebake follows up on last year's stunning & sold out 'Peace In The Park' extravaganza with a special celebration honouring those of have, are & will succeed - as we play host to a selection of our most famous local artists – especially those through the past few years whom have seemingly made a respected presence on international stages.
Despite the changing face of the world this decade, we can all be proud of many within our entertainment industry for having placed international focus on the incredible talent within our own ‘backyard’ and for this very reason, HOMEBAKE 2009 will honour those appearing on our humble stages – as well as paying homage to the local entertainment industry as a whole. And now with great pleasure and excitement, what better way for us to show our respect as we invite the masses to join the local music film and arts communities at Homebake as we celebrate this birthday theme in the most appropriate and spectacular surroundings of The Domain in central Sydney city.
