Mercury Rising 07 - New Year's Eve 2007

Saturday 5 May 2007

Promoter Manolo Echave today confirmed that MERCURY RISING will once again be held on the Coromandel Peninsula on New Years Eve 07.

“There have been several approaches to move the show however the proximity to Auckland and the exceptional setting of the Coromandel means MR will remain on The Coromandel Peninsular for NYE 07.”

Planning to date has seen the organisation of the bar facilities being passed on to more experienced operators, the availability of prepaid parking and camping options and ablution numbers doubled from MERCURY RISING 06.

“I was very disappointed at the frustration and holdups patrons had to endure. This is a night of celebration and it is essential that we facilitate an easy and comfortable process in all areas.”

This means that this year there will be a VIP ticket option which will give VIP holders an exclusive area with bar facility and confirmed parking with camping options on purchase of the ticket. VIP tickets are restricted to 1000.

In addition to the mainstage concert performances The MOJO BAR will once again host its own independent performance schedule and be open from 4.00pm through to midnight.

Toilet and rubbish facilities will be greatly enhanced from those available in 06 and particular focus is being placed on transport services from central Whitianga to the concert site.

Negotiations for this years artist lineup is well under way and the first round announcement is due early June.
