Rain failed to dampen the spirits of the 2,500 people who attended the Day on the Plain concert near Dalby last Saturday as part of Big Skies 2019.
The rock concert was the culmination of nine days of Big Skies events that celebrated the sights, sounds and tastes of the Western Downs.
CS Energy was a festival partner and sponsored Day on the Plain, which was billed as the biggest concert west of the Great Dividing Range in Queensland.
Despite some rain earlier in the day, the weather remained dry for the concert in the afternoon and evening.
Concert goers soaked up the sounds of some of Australia’s most well-known rock acts against the backdrop of the historic Jimbour House.

CS Energy CEO Andrew Bills attended the concert, along with a number of employees from CS Energy’s Kogan Creek Power Station and Brisbane Office.
Mr Bills offered his congratulations to the Western Downs Regional Council for staging a successful event that showcased the Western Downs region.
“Many of CS Energy’s employees live and work on the Western Downs so we are proud to support events like Big Skies that create cultural and economic opportunities in the region,” Mr Bills said.
