The Falls Music & Arts Festival’s Exciting New Partnership
Words by Scenewave Australia - Published on September 8, 2012
The Falls Music & Arts Festival is growing, in more ways than one. Two of the event’s leading ladies, General Manager Naomi Daly and Event Manager Carmella Morgan will be leaving the event to spend more time with their young families, both with babies shortly on the way.
With two thirds of the festival’s top management saying good-bye, the door has been left open to an exciting new union. Stepping into their roles and partnering with Simon Daly in The Falls Music & Arts Festival are Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco from Splendour in the Grass!
“We love The Falls Music & Arts Festival; it’s a remarkable event that we’re thrilled to be a part of. We look forward to working with Simon and his team nurturing and continuing the great Falls tradition” Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco, Co-Producers of Splendour in the Grass.
“The Falls Music & Arts Festival goes from strength to strength every year and the contributions from Naomi and Carmella have been immeasurable. I couldn’t think of a better team to join us in Jess and Paul as we continue this tradition for many years to come”. Simon Daly, Festival Founder.
The collaboration is a coming together of the people behind two of Australia’s most renowned music festivals. Organisers confirm there are no changes planned for either festival or personnel other than the aforementioned.
