Amplifier Newsletter #183 - 24 August 2005
Kia ora , Winter isn't normally a great time for music festivals, too much rain and not enough sun. If however you’re close to a big snow capped mountain then it’s all on and this year Amplifier is getting behind the Fallout Festival at Mt Ruapehu and surrounding towns. The Silver Scroll nominations were announced last week and next week sees what is traditionally one of the best parties of the year at the Juice TV Awards. You can check the Juice nominees here and watch most of the nominated videos.
