The Mattara Festival of Newcastle celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2011 and is still today one of the Hunter’s premier community-based festivals. Mattara’s Festival over the years has been a wonderful launch pad for all Local upcoming artists and performers; Mattara’s program encompasses many musical elements, sport, traditional crafts, performing and visual arts, sculptures, workshops, displays and exhibits, information stalls and much more. Over the past few years financial support has been hard to gain, so in order to keep Mattara alive for the community of Newcastle & surrounds we are working together with Newcastle Panthers to help make this happen. Mattara will hold a Fundraising Concert at Newcastle Panthers on Friday 24 August, including Stan Walker, Young Men Society & The Party Crashers, with all funds raised going towards the financial expenses for Mattara Festival 2012 after all outgoing cost are finalised.
