Get your dancing shoes on and head to the South Kolan music festival

FORGET Splendour in the Grass and the Big Day Out, head out to South Kolan for a festival that will rock your socks.

The Little Big Fest will be held tonight at the South Kolan Pub and is "going to be massive”.

South Kolan Pub owner Jo Duffy said it was a first for them and they were all ready to give the "festival feels”.

Mrs Duffy said planning for the music event started in November last year and after a few hiccups they couldn't wait to see the patrons roll through the gates.

After a car smashed through the pub on Mother's Day builders had been working around the clock to make sure the festival could go ahead.

Now the big night has arrived.

"There's been plenty of interest already,” Mrs Duffy said.

"We have closed off the side car park with 6ft fencing and will have street food vans and a bar out there.”

There will be four main acts for the night with locals The Spargo Brothers taking stage with the likes of Four String Phil and Mason Rack Band.
