THE figures are in and the 25th Canberra International Music Festival saw a 12 per cent increase in attendances, with 8000 tickets sold.

The 43 events over 11 days were held in some of Canberra’s most recognisable venues, such as The National Gallery of Australia, Mount Stromlo and The Botanic Gardens.

Festival organisers report that around 40 per cent of their resources came from individual donors, the business community, venue partners, embassies and a team of more than 120 volunteers.
