Lind Hellmich - Fairplay Entertainment

Linda Hellmich

Linda is the new girl on the block and will be Fairplay’s go to for all things finance and admin.

Born in Scotland, Linda still carries a hint of an accent after becoming an Aussie a lifetime ago.

Be warned, she may or may not snort when she laughs and don’t challenge her for cash when it comes to a name that 80’s artist tune on any long road trip - you will be out of pocket!

Her first live concerts were Bucks Fizz (don’t judge her) and Wham!

She has a love of travel, reality TV shows and reading, but most of all chocolate.

Frankie Kay

Frankie Kay has diverse experience within the music industry, with a background in marketing, events, band merchandising, bookings and live music photography while working across Lizotte’s three venues between 2009 – 2015. She was a familiar face at the Avoca Beachside Markets for many years, coordinating the buskers and began working for Fairplay as a booking agent in 2015. Frankie has a passion for live music and loves to encourage new emerging artists. After a hiatus (due to covid), she returns to Fairplay and is excited to reconnect with her music industry roots.

In her spare time, Frankie loves to paint and spend time with family and friends.
