Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his work in organising Band Aid and other concerts that raised millions of dollars for starving people in Africa, Irish rock star, author and political activist Bob Geldof rose to prominence as lead singer of the Irish rock band The Boomtown Rats with number one hits like 'Rat Trap' and 'I don't like Mondays' from the early 1970s.

Geldof is widely recognised for his activism, especially anti-poverty efforts concerning Africa with Band Aid  and one of the best selling singles of all times 'Do they know it's Christmas time' and Live Aid.  Geldof currently serves as an adviser to the ONE Campaign, founded by fellow Irishman Bono, and is a member of the Africa Progress Panel (APP), a group of ten distinguished individuals who advocate at the highest levels for equitable and sustainable development in Africa. A single father, Geldof has also been outspoken for the fathers' rights movement.

Bob Geldof is a recipient of the Man of Peace title which recognises individuals who have made "an outstanding contribution to international social justice and peace", among numerous other awards and nominations. In 2005 he received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

Creative Partnerships Australia Plus 1 Grant

We’re really excited to inform you that we have been awarded the 2017 Creative Partnerships Australia Plus1grant for Denmark Festival of Voice.

The grant was awarded for the purpose of raising the profile of the festival as well as continuing to invest in additional awesome acts!

Every dollar given is matched by the Federal Government.
Creative Partnerships Australia is a prestigious arts funding organisation and Plus 1 is their most coveted grant; receiving it is not only a great recognition of what we have already achieved but it also puts us alongside some of the most established and respected arts organisations in Australia.
It’s not a walk in the park though. Denmark Arts have received the most valuable pledge of up to $50,000 but only have until end September 2018 to match up to that amount in fundraising, yet imagine what $100,000 could do for the Festival and for that matter, the entire town.

So, if you have a few spare dollars under your mattress we’d welcome your donation – it’s all tax deductible and one of your dollars is worth two to us.This is an opportunity we don’t want to miss, so if you love Denmark Arts and the Denmark Festival of Voice, want to ensure the Government gives us the entire 50K and can help us…now would be a great time.

Donate for a mind-blowing Denmark Festival of Voice 2018/2019
