If you’re a young local solo artist or band and you have what it takes to entertain a crowd, then don’t miss the chance to be part of this year’s Fisher’s Gig – the largest all ages music festival in south west Sydney.

Open to young people aged 12 to 24 who live, work or study in the Macarthur region, Fisher’s Gig provides a unique opportunity to gain first-hand experience with some of the best in the industry.

Expressions of interest for Fisher’s Gig heats 2015 are now open, giving local performers the chance to nominate themselves to be part of the selection heats for this year’s gig.

Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr Paul Lake, said Fisher’s Gig was a drawcard event that had earned a reputation for launching the careers of up and coming young local musicians.

“Fisher’s Gig is a great opportunity to share your talent, gain exposure in a competitive industry and experience the atmosphere of our city’s most iconic festival,” Cr Lake said.

“There is no other music event on this scale for young people in the south west Sydney region, so if you think you’ve got what it takes to rock Macarthur, we want to hear from you.”
