BREATH of Life organiser Clint Pease said he expected about 10,500 people to attend this year's music festival at the Inveresk showgrounds on Sunday.
International and Australian acts such as Dizzee Rascal, Bliss N Eso, Birds Of Tokyo and Flume will mix it with Tasmania DJs Ashley Tiffin and DJ Mad at the festival raising money for the Lung Foundation Australia.
Mr Pease said the strong line-up and a predicted temperature in the high 20s should attract a heavy following.
``Our crowd estimates are between 10,000 and 10,500 (people), which in the current climate and all things considered is a massive result,'' Mr Pease said.
``To have a festival with an international standard line-up in Launceston is a massive thing for the city and the state as a whole.
``With people's ongoing support, hopefully moving forward we can start creating some interest and greater support from local council and state government once they see the benefit of what this event is and the standard of this event.
``We can see the future of this event secured for many years to come.''
About $70,000 was raised for research into chronic lung disease from last year's festival.
Mr Pease said police would have a strong presence at the festival to stop any antisocial behaviour.
``BYO alcohol is off limits, drugs . .. don't even bother - the police will be out in force making sure it is safe and clean and an environment for everybody,'' he said.
