WITH an estimated 30 degrees, it is clear today's Breath of Life Festival is going to be hot.
But you can escape the heat.
Along with setting up three stages, the rides and the food and drink stalls, organisers have also set up the festival's first-ever chill-out zone.
The zone will be located in the centre of the main arena and will include lots of shade to get out of the sun, bean bags and a big screen showing live performances from the main stage so you don't miss out on any of the action.
Festival organiser Clint Pease said the zone would also have mobile phone charges for people to use during the day and breathalysers would be available.
``So that will make sure people are having lots of fun at the festival, but are also doing the right thing when they leave,'' Mr Pease said.
More than 10,500 people are expected to flock to the Inveresk Showgrounds for today's event, which is raising money for Lung Foundation Australia.
Mr Pease said organisers did not have a particular fund-raising target. ``It all just depends how it goes at the end of the day,'' he said.
About $70,000 was raised for research into chronic lung disease from last year's festival.
