Tathra’s Eternity Festival drew hundreds of people and successfully raised enough money to buy new solar panels. Sunday’s event saw a crowd of about 350 people pass through the gates to enjoy an afternoon of music – although the rain did start during the last band’s set. “It went really well, we were really happy with how it went considering it was the first time many of us had organised a music festival!” Clean Energy for Eternity founder Matthew Nott said.

Also, the money raised means the organiers are well on their way to having enough to purchase solar panels for the Rocky Hall NSW Rural Fire Service’s fire shed – Dr Nott said any more donations to the cause were very welcome. Last week, Dr Nott said he wanted the Eternity Festival to become a much larger, annual event to raise the money to supply Tathra with 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030. On Monday, he said once the dust settles the organisers would meet up and discuss the next event. “I think we all rated this festival as a success and the general feel was we should do it again,” he said.
