City of Ballarat Mayor, Cr Des Hudson said Spilt Milk had proved to be an enormous offering on Ballarat’s events calendar.

“We saw last year that the event was a vibrant display of energy and I know that this year will be no different,” Cr Hudson said.

“Being able to attract this event highlights Ballarat as a genuine destination city and we are thrilled to see the city come to life every year.”

Meantime, a new temporary Telstra mobile phone tower will be trialed at the festival, after attendees and residents complained about a lack of connectivity last year.
