As tens of thousands of people made their way to the East Coast on Saturday, there was an expectation that something could go wrong.
Ahead of the One Night Stand concert, police and emergency services were on high alert.
With only one major road in and out of St Helens, there was a high risk of traffic congestion and potential crashes.
There was also the fact that despite it being advertised as a family-friendly, alcohol-free event, it was expected there would be a number of after parties.
So the news on Sunday that the event had been a success with no major incidents is a testament to those who attended.
There were some infringements issued for having alcohol open in public, but that was after the event.
A few were caught drink and drug driving, but that was only a handful out of the more than 30,000 people who would have gone through the gates, with police praising overall behaviour.
Break O’Day mayor Mick Tucker said half of the crowd would have left by Sunday morning, with no major damage to report.
“It’s obvious the message that we put out about respect has been really, really taken on board by not only the people within the community, but the people from afar,” he said.
The event was also a chance for Tasmania to showcase the East Coast, with thousands of those who attended travelling from both across the state and the mainland.
While its natural assets are already a major drawcard for tourists, there is clearly a market for major events and concerts.
We already have fantastic festivals held along that region, so why not have more?
Each year the Festival of Voices invites visitors to enjoy a range of activities and entertainment along the coastline.
Then there is the Bay of Fires Winter Arts Festival, which offers four days of workshops, exhibitions, dancing and art.
One Night Stand was just another example of how popular the East Coast is and it is clear there is a demand for more events in that region.
