The Wiggles to star at Bathurst SuperFest

SUPERCARS has signed global children’s music marvels The Wiggles to perform a free concert as part of the upcoming Bathurst SuperFest celebrations.

Four days of entertainment between the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour and Thrifty Bathurst 500 will culminate in The Wiggles playing in town from 5-6pm AEDT on Thursday February 22.

That will be directly followed by an all-in Supercars driver autograph session, and then a CBD moonlight cinema showing of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

“We’re so excited to be bringing the Big Red Car to the Thrifty Bathurst 500 where we’ll be performing all our favourite Wiggly songs,” The Wiggles said in a statement.

“The energy and atmosphere at Supercars events are always exhilarating for families and we can’t wait to be a part of it and to see you all there!”

Triple Eight recruit and Thrifty ambassador Will Brown welcomed the announcement.

“It’s awesome to have The Wiggles coming to town ahead of the Thrifty Bathurst 500,” he said.

“I’m still waiting for the official call-up but at the moment I’m hoping I’ll be the first Red, Blue and Yellow Wiggle all in one!

“The Bathurst SuperFest is going to be a great event for fans of all ages, and off-track it won’t get much bigger than the Thursday night between race weekends.

“With the concert, a signing session with all of us drivers, and the outdoor cinema, and some more cool stuff in the works, it’s going to be a huge couple of weeks leading into the Thrifty Bathurst 500, and to top it off we get to go racing at the Mountain. I can’t wait, let’s get that fruit salad!”

Supercars has indicated there are more entertainment announcements to come for the SuperFest.

The Bathurst 12 Hour will take place across February 16-18, with the Mountain hosting Supercars’ season-opener the following weekend.
