All pictures this page: ANGIE BASDEKIS. Dust starts to settle Daniel Burdon TZUs Seed MC and Joelistics upped the tempo during a crowd-pleasing performance THE highlight of youth music events in Alice Springs Bassinthedust 07 has been hailed a success by or ganisers. The Waifs Vicki Thorn blew her fans away Jets lead singer Nic Cester The Waifs Donna Simpson kicked up her heels This is despite numbers being down at the festival, which attracted 600 fewer patrons than last year. Held at Anzac Oval on Saturday, a majority of the crowd appeared to enjoy the day, with many nominating Melbournes hard-rocking metal-funk band Mammal as their favourite. The band followed local acts Nights Plague and Through Bullets and Bravery. NT Major Events chief Paul Cattermole said Mammal was a highlight for many. And he praised the high quality of all the Alice Springsbased bands that performed. He said: We had no major incidents during the day, and very few evictions for underage drinking. The annual event was deemed the most laid-back and safest Bassinthedust festival to date, and marked the start of good things to come for the vibrant local music scene, with the continued support from the Alice Springs Town Council and the Northern Territory Government. Mr Cattermole said: There was a lot of empty space on the day, but I dont want to be negative we were delighted with the event. Other stand-out acts on the day were big-ticket band The Waifs, Behind Crimson Eyes TZU and Lowrider. NT Major Events plans to hold next years Bassinthedust festival at the same venue, at about the same time as the AFL preliminary finals. German tourists tune in MORE than two million radio listeners in Germany are learning about the Territory as part of a new tourism campaign. The six-week, $450,000 campaign will be broadcast on Germanys 1Live radio station as part of a joint initiative between Tourism Australia, Singapore Airlines and German travel wholesaler, Boomerang Reisen. Listeners will need to answer trivia questions about the Territory to win one of 60 trips on the Ghan. The campaign will be c o m p l e m e n t e d b y online, cinema and billboard advertising. NT Tourism Minister Paul Henderson said more than 42,000 German tourists visited the NT last financial year. He said: Germany is one of the Northern Territorys key international tourism markets and this new campaign is a great way to highlight the fantastic adventures to be had during an NT holiday. The Government will continue to work to build this market because we know it brings benefits for business and jobs for Territorians.
