iPrimus announce sponsorship of “Rock the Boats” local music festival

The “Rock the Boats” iPrimus music stage at Waterfront City will bring a great collection of free live music from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th of February. Rock, blues, jazz, pop and country music will all be featured from some of Australia’s best live artists, with the addition of some live indie acts that have recently been discovered through the “Kool Skools” project. The iPrimus stage will be set in amongst hundreds of boats on display by the Melbourne International Boat show.
iPrimus General Manager, Marketing & Products Andrew Sims said: “With concern over the closure of live music venues and the future of live music in Melbourne, it’s certainly a pleasure to be part of a positive initiative supporting local acts and young talent as part of the Summertime festivals. We’ve been an avid supporter of the Kool Skools initiative for a number of years now and this program just highlights the commitment iPrimus has for local communities and local acts. We would encourage everyone possible to get down to the Docklands between the 5th and 7th of February to check out what the new generation of Australian music is doing and potentially see the next superstars in the making.”
Studio 52 and Kool Skools CEO Paul Higgins said: “iPrimus has helped make this new Festival a reality for Melbourne and we believe that it makes sense for a communications company to talk in the language of music and live entertainment. iPrimus’s support of the Kool Skools Project and this new live Rock the Boats event really makes a difference for young musicians and artists starting careers.”

“The line up for this event includes a broad range of new and established artists including one of Australia’s best new voices, Marc Collis who recently supported the John Farnham tour, the well known Katie Underwood who has just released a new cool Jazz album and Neighbours star turned rock star, Sam Clark who’s current song ‘Broken’ is doing well in the charts. We hope that everyone takes advantage of this feast of free entertainment along the promenade and at the iPrimus stage at Docklands,” concluded Paul Higgins.

The “Rock the Boats” iPrimus music stage at Waterfront City will run from Friday the 5th – 7th of February, from 11am until late.
