If ‘Weir’ or ‘Mascara’ are the songs that take you back to 1999, don’t miss the chance to get up close and personal with the band behind them Killing Heidi in Airlie Beach.

Fans who buy a three-day pass to the Airlie Beach Festival of Music from now until October 31 will be entered into a draw for a meet and greet with Australia’s favourite rock siblings, Jesse and Ella Hooper.

The lucky winner will be taken backstage an hour before the band’s main stage performance on Saturday, November 10, and will walk away with a photograph and signed merchandise.

Frontwoman Ella Hooper said she and Jesse always loved meeting people who appreciated their songs, “Part of the reason for returning to the Killing Heidi material has been the positive response from our fans, So definitely come and check out our set at the festival. We play all our hits and songs that people know and love – from ‘Weir’, ‘Mascara’ and ‘I am’, (as well as) some old more eclectic favourites.”

Festival founder Gavin Butlin said there were so many Killing Heidi fans it would mean the world to any one of them to meet their idols in the flesh. “I think everyone in Australia from the ages of 20 to 50 knows who Killing Heidi is – they’ve had some massive hits and they’re one of Australia’s best rock groups with a female singer, I’m really looking forward to having them play at the Airlie Beach Festival of Music and thrilled we can offer someone this personalised experience”.
