Wee Waa readies for Daft Punk invasion

The tiny NSW town of Wee Waa is learning how to cope when the world descends for Daft Punk’s album launch on May 17. All 4000 tickets to the listening party sold out in 13 minutes. The event is now expanded to the two-day Daft Vines (now known as Weekend Vines) for which 2,500 will attend. Narrabri Shire mayor Conrad Bolton held a presentation to update locals on providing up to 13,000 meals (not to mention toilets and ATMs) and plans to put the outsiders in a 2000-bed tent city at festival site Seplin Estate winery and get the locals to put others up in their homes. Wee Waa Show Society president Brett Dickinson provided an update on organisation and Sony Music’s John Parker was on hand to detail the launch and the community’s involvement. Playing the after-party are Olibusta (France), UK’s Marvin Roland and Crease and Melbourne’s Mr Pyz and LA Pocock.
