In a real bonus for organisers, Pauly Fenech of Houso’s and Fat Pizza fame, has been confirmed as one of the special guests for the second edition of Australia’s Biggest Bogan Festival (ABBF) at Bedgerabong Racecourse from June 11-13.
The event, which was previously held at Bogan Gate in 2019, like many events was postponed in 2020.
“We have been lucky that we have many who want to see this work and this year’s event happen from business operators to volunteers and more including Pauly Fenech,” said co-owner/ organiser Luke Acheson in Forbes for a promo shoot on the weekend.
“We are calling on all bogans far and wide to get behind this event. With your support, your ticket purchase allows you entry into up to 15 events, see some live music and comedy as well as go into the draw for a number of prizes,” said Mr Acheson.”
“Plus we will be doing some fundraising for charity so it’s a chance to donate to those less fortunate.”
Already the event is shaping into something sensational with Chris Franklin, Hype Duo, Benny Bogan – the fairdinkum Aussie, Balls N All and The Noll Brothers plus other special guests.
“We may have some more surprises yet,” said Luke. With rumours abound of a bogan wedding, lawnmower racing and more special guests Mr Acheson advises punters to get their tickets early.
“Tickets are going like pies at Spooner’s Oval on footy day and ticket prices include options such as bus travel and camping.”
“There’ll be a number of stalls there as well as new events and some old favourites,” he said. “It should be a cracker and we can’t wait to see you all there!”
Australia’s Biggest Bogan Festival is an 18+ event
