TREVOR : a music festival

Tuesday, 16 October 2012 14:08

Trevor is a collection of 3000 like-minded individuals all looking for more than just an amazing music experience.

Trevor is the feeling you get in finding an old box of polaroids, full of summer fun and familiar faces. It's about getting up for a quick dance and not sitting down again. It's the sticky carpet at your local and the familiar smell of the band room. It's a celebration of everything you have ever loved about music, friends, family and food.

“Music, Food and Family; it's like a holy trinity...” explains Nick Say, co-producer, “...and that's what Trevor's all about. We want to make sure that parents are relaxed and kids are exhausted by the end of the day – hopefully meaning a nice sleep in for mum and dad the following morning!”

Trevor's impressive lineup is headed by ICEHOUSE, and while parents rock out to sets from Ash Grunwald, The Bamboos, Sweet Jean, Brow Horn Orchestra and Pierce Brothers, kids Twelve and under will be sifting through their complimentary show-bag, massive armful of vouchers, gifts and revelling in the huge array of things to do.

Trevor's co-creator, Paul Stafford, himself a published chef, says that Trevor will also be a festival of amazing food.

“Food is so often overlooked at music festivals but it's vital in creating an amazing experience that people won't forget. We want everyone to remember the paella as much as hearing Icehouse play 'Great Southern Land' as the sun sets over Churchill Island.”

And so enormous pans of Paella will be matched with a zingy Sangria, delicious lamb shanks washed down with a cold beer and slow cooked pork shoulder will be piled with an asian slaw and rolled in light, flaky pastry.

“...and we're asking all vendors to reduce their waste, to use bio-degradable or recycled packaging wherever possible, or even no packaging at all. Basically to think outside the square. We've got a 'leave it as you find' it approach to the Island, and hopefully, leave it even better.”

Churchill Island, the location for the festival, by it's sheer beauty demands a respect for the environment that Trevor is taking very seriously with a range of initiatives from recycled paper stock for posters, ensuring sustainable practices from it's poster printers and focussing on e-marketing wherever possible.

The moral of the story is that Trevor is well and truly a keenly green, family man, who, while holding a slow cooked lamb shank, can still cut it on the dance floor!
