Greenpeace to join Buskers Festival

ONE of the world’s most visible and high-profile environmental lobby groups is hoping to cash in on the popularity of the Coffs Harbour International Buskers and Comedy Festival.

Festival organiser John Logan has received an expression of interest from Greenpeace about being involved this year and having a presence so that it can promote its cause.

“It’s kind of nice to know the festival is big enough and well known enough to have organisations like Greenpeace wanting to be involved,” Mr Logan said. “Obviously Greenpeace don’t set up stalls at the school fete – it really does show the international appeal the festival now has. Regardless of their cause, it’s nice to know.”

He said a number of international companies had approached him about being involved in the festival.

“We have had a number of marketing companies approach us on behalf of third parties,” he said.

The festival is set to kick off in the city on September 24.
