Oscar really loves me at the moment.
I am a very popular Mum, and all I had to do was arrange a big day out for a groovin’ three-year old at Rhymes Kids Music Festival.
I’m not sure if it’s the promise of Yo Gabba Gabba! or Lazy Town, or whether it’s all about the silent disco and the magic light show but regardless, Oscar and I are both extremely excited about having tickets to go along to this one-of-a-kind music festival.
Music is such an important part of childhood, helping kids to learn and of course, to have fun. Rhymes hones in on this, and takes advantage of the fact that kid’s music has come along way of late:
Rhymes Tour Director Adam Coward says “Kids Music has made massive leaps forward with modern musicians becoming parents and wanting to create new genres and styles that not only their kids will like, but, they can enjoy just as much.” Exciting new styles such as “K(indie) Rock” and “KidHop” have emerged bringing the musical world’s of parents and their children together.
“We’ve seen this convergence happen in kids movies” says Mr Coward. “Shrek, Toy Story, Madagascar, Megamind, they are engaging the adult mind as well, allowing parents and children to sit together and enjoy the movie experience. We’re now seeing the same thing with music and it’s very exciting”.
It’s a fantastic chance for parents and kids to enjoy a day out together, it’s a real adventure:
… for all the parents who thought you would have to hang up your festival boots forever after having kids… Rhymes music festival is helping parents relive their festival glory days and giving their kids their very first festival experience with great music running on multiple stages all day.
So watch out Tweenies, here we come!
I’ve put it on my calendar in big red pen… 30 October 2011. I’ve made plans to get to the Melbourne Showgrounds early, and I’ve already made a mental list of the supplies required to get us both through a day of rockin’ out!
Tickets are available here, and if you buy before 30 September they’re cheaper – get in quick for a nice little discount.
You can check out full details about Rhymes Kids Music Festival at their website. Show the kids, they’ll be rapted!
Stay tuned for more on Rhymes as I’ll be chatting soon with Festival Director Adam Coward about just how this great festival came about.
