"The longer they drag this out, the bigger we get!"
Keep Sydney Open are pleased to welcome Liberal City of Sydney Councillor Christine Forster, Alex Greenwich MP and Isabella Manfredi of Sydney rock band The Preatures to tomorrow's rally lineup. They will join GANGgajang,Montaigne and Hugo Gruzman from electronic duo Flight Facilities who will be performing in Martin Place from midday.
Also added to the list of performers are local DJs Adi Toohey and Andy Garvey, whose work with community station FBi Radio and the dance music scene has helped usher in a new era of electronic music in Sydney, with females at the forefront.
The inclusion of Councillor Forster at the rally is particularly significant, as a member of the same political party that implemented and has maintained the lockout laws in Sydney. Mr Greenwich's appearance is also noteworthy as the boundaries of the lockouts are drawn entirely within his electorate.
Tyson Koh, Keep Sydney Open's Campaign Director, says: "Having Councillor Forster and MP for Sydney Alex Greenwich speak at our rally shows the broad support there is for recognising the importance of Sydney's nightlife. We have to implement smarter policies that keep our city safe without sacrificing vibrancy, jobs, small businesses and cultural relevance."
Keep Sydney Open's third rally takes place this Saturday 18th February at Martin Place from midday.
