Council supports Coastal Twist festival with $50,000

Central Coast Council has granted $50,000 for a second Coastal Twist festival to be held on the Peninsula over the October long weekend.

Festival organiser Mr Juan Iocco said the inaugural three-day festival exceeded expectations with about three times the number of people attending he had hoped for.

Events at the inaugural festival which included cabaret, drag, film and live music, were all sold out, he said.

"Not only did Coastal Twist entertain with adventurous, unorthodox productions and pioneering artists, scholars, and game-changers but we offered audiences of every age, ability and gender, sexuality uncommon offerings that can, and often do, reshape and expand world views," he said.

Mr Iocco said Coastal Twist was successful not just for having a festival but also successful for putting the Peninsula on the map.

"It shows the best side of the Central Coast - who we are as a people."

Council voted last Monday night to grant $50,000 to Naughty Noodle Fun House to conduct Coastal Twist.

The grant was part of the 2019-20 Grants and Sponsorship Program which aims to support the community to deliver programs, projects or events that build connections and celebrate the local community.
