Mount Isa City Council to welcome Jessica Mauboy to Isa Street Festival

Just when you thought the live music scene in Mount Isa couldn’t get any better after the One Night Stand at the weekend, Mount Isa City Council is thrilled to announce that Jessica Mauboy will be performing at this year’s Isa Street Festival.

 

Held every year on the Wednesday night of Rodeo Week, the Isa Street Festival is the Mount Isa City Council contribution to rodeo week in the Isa, and this year will feature Jessica Mauboy, a free concert for the community.

 

Mayor Joyce McCulloch said the performance was funded by the State Government Drought Support Package for social connectedness, and she was delighted to have secured Ms Mauboy.

 

“I think Jessica will be such a fantastic addition to the Isa Street Festival this year, she is such a positive role model, and it will be the first time she has performed in Mount Isa,” Cr McCulloch said.

 

“This Council is committed to providing top class entertainment and opportunities for our residents, and the One Night Stand and Jessica Mauboy reinforce this commitment.”

 

The Isa Street Festival will take place during rodeo week on Wednesday August 9.

 

This will take place in the CBD with all the same great features of the past festival including food stalls, markets, kids activities and art.

 

 

More details to be released soon.
