Concern over cost of freight

A DAY on the Green promoters say more needs to be done to reduce the freight costs of holding such an event in Tasmania.

Promoter Michael Newton said yesterday that the concert would return to Relbia either before or after Christmas.

Mr Newton said he tried to give people good value for money, despite the high cost of shipping equipment across Bass Strait.

"It would be fantastic to get some freight assistance from the government and that goes for a lot of promoters I'd expect," he said.

"It is really expensive to get down there."

Mr Newton said there was not much scope to grow the event at Josef Chromy Wines.

Hunters and Collectors, British India and Something For Kate drew an audience of 5550 on Saturday, for the fourth Day on the Green concert.

Tom Jones, The Pretenders, Blondie and the Hoodoo Gurus have all played at the event.

Mr Newton said it was too early to speculate who the next headline act would be.
