Chugg Entertainment has partnered with Homebake Music, Film, Comedy & Arts Festival producers IMC and Village Sounds to co-produce Homebake.
The partnership is now in operation and will see Chugg involved with Homebake 2012. “I am so excited about this”, Michael Chugg said is a statement. “With all the amazing home-grown talent in this country, Homebake has always been at the forefront of celebrating the incredible Australian and New Zealand music on offer. Right now in the live market our local acts are doing as strong business, in some cases even better, than some international acts – so it’s a great time to get involved. There is so much love for this festival and we just can’t wait.”
Homebake started in Byron Bay in 1996 and moved to Sydney in the late 90s. This year’s event is its 17th birthday.
IMC’s Joe Segreto said, “We’re thrilled to welcome one of Australia’s most prominent, respected (and loud) promoters, Michael Chugg and the Chugg Entertainment team to Homebake – exciting times.” On closing the deal, Joe said “How much can a koala bear?”
The 2012 Homebake event features Blondie, Kimbra, Birds of Tokyo, Julia Stone, Daniel Merriweather, Something For Kate and Tim Minchin.
Homebake 2012 is on December 8 at the Domain in Sydney.
