The second annual Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival is returning to the Central Coast to celebrate difference, diversity and all things regional, thanks to $53,611 from the NSW Government’s Regional Events Acceleration Fund.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the five-day event, which will feature free and ticketed programs for all ages from 19-23 January, was rescheduled from its original October date because of COVID-19.
“Audiences will experience the best local food and drinks the Central Coast has to offer, while being treated to events such as the DJ hosted ‘Life’s a Beach’ day,” Mr Crouch said.
“This event will be the perfect way to spend a summer’s day on the Central Coast, showcasing our region’s vibrant arts, music and culture which will also bring tourism dollars to local businesses and help stimulate our economy.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said the NSW Government’s support of the Coastal Twist would showcase local and regional talent, performances and celebrate diversity, putting the Central Coast on the map as an ideal events location.
“The Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival will give locals and visitors an opportunity to experience a smorgasbord of indoor and outdoor events featuring professional performers and artists from across Australia,” Mr Toole said.
Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival Director Glitta Supernova said the Regional Events Acceleration Fund will help champion existing and already successful diverse regional events, such as Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival.
“This is a game changer for the Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival, which will be attended by an estimated 7,000 people, across five days this January.”
