The Garden Party will open its gates to the Melbourne public for a free one-off session, to celebrate Australia Day.
What’s more Aussie than the suburban garden? The outdoor venue has been designed to evoke the Australian Dream, the perfect environment for music enthusiasts to celebrate our sunburnt country and vibrant culture with local musical talent and great food and drinks.
This one-off session includes a funky line-up of some of Australia’s best musical talent, including Fantine and The Bearded Gypsy Band with more acts for this date to be announced.
Melbourne Recital Centre’s Director of Programming & Presenter Services, Kirsten Siddle said, “If you’re looking for something quintessentially Australian, then The Garden Party is for you. Free music, food and drinks with your mates in the great outdoors; this is the best way to celebrate Australia Day.”
New acts announced today joining the already stellar line-up for The Garden Party include Australian singer-songwriter Bertie Blackman (16 Feb, on sale soon), Sydney-based rockers Battleships (1 Feb) and folktronica act Caitlin Park (3 Feb).
The combination of The Bearded Gypsy Band’s gypsy-folk fusion sound and Fantine’s indie-pop electro beats will mean The Garden Party will fill up quickly on this day. Entry to this free session is subject to venue capacity, so be sure to get in early. Please note that this is a licensed event and patrons must be aged 18+ to enter.
