Elvis fans to converge on Daydream Island
ELVIS fans from around the country are expected to converge on Daydream Island from tomorrow for an "Elvis Style" festival (May 19-24).
The festival will feature well-known Elvis impersonators and performers such as UK artists Pete Storm, Andy Wood and Johnny Lee Memphis, as well as one of Australia's favourites, the much-loved Mark Andrew.
An action-packed program will see the island "shake, rattle and roll" from 11am each day until well past midnight.
Mark Andrew, who is the entertainment co-ordinator in addition to his role as a performer, said with the island solely booked out for the festival, guests would feel as though they were on a cruise ship, but with all the benefits of being on land.
"We've organised an entertainment area around the pool deck and an entertainment area at the atrium and there's going to be movie screens and lots of other entertainment as well," he said.
"People are going to feel like they're on a deserted island, which is for their sole use, with all these fantastic events."
Five-night packages are still on sale, with prices starting at $2576 based on two people in a garden room. Two-night packages are also available, starting at $1365.
The Elvis Style festival will be followed immediately by another four-day event, celebrating the music of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
