2017 Paleo a success

National News // July 24, 2017

This year’s Paleo Festival has wrapped up – and the organisers say it was a tremendous success. The shows put on by the headliners, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Midnight Oil and Arcade Fire were hailed as spectacular.

But the head of Paleo, Daniel Rossellat, called it a ‘beautiful show’ despite some rain. He says he was especially delighted as the crowd took to artists slightly less known.

230,000 people attended the festival for the six days of music – and despite the numbers, there were no serious incidents.

The 2018 festival will kick off on 17th July.
