"Wait a min, is there a love tax yet?"

Answered by: Capt Bluetongue

Presumably you've been to the Newtown Festival before, what's your best memory? The community spirit of the Newtown festival is unique and crosses all demographics. A great, great family day out. Even the dogs are sociable.

What's first and why — music or stalls or bars? Bar first to settle in and soak in the atmosphere. Music to enjoy a tipple. Stalls to take home some goodies and souvenirs to remember a great day out!

Favourite spot at the festival to chill and watch the world go by? Anywhere on the grass away from the dog poo.

What would be your entry into the dog show? That would have to be my chocolate labradoodle, Good Time Charlie! He would win but he can't carry a guitar and would probably chew the mic cable.

Aside from the festival, what are your favourite Newtown locations? Mary's, Young Henry's. The Vanguard is a favourite of ours — we have had many great gigs and good times there.

Why do you think your music is a good fit for the Newtown Festival? We are about community; our single The Free Train Agreement is about what governments can't tax you for — friendship etc. Wait a min, is there a love tax yet?

If you were to enter Miss Newtopia, open to any age or gender, what would be your secret to winning? We would have to wear a wig but would still be the ugly step-sisters.

When and where are you performing on the day? Newtopia Stage, 12pm.
