Scene News: A Day On The Green Launches 2018/19 Season This Weekend

Beginning with concert number 454, during the next five months a day on the green will once again play host to a mouth-watering feast of music, marked by the same diversity that has characterised the brand since its inception in January 2001.

Last season, 45 artists played at 30 shows for nearly 250,000 happy fans – and we just can’t wait to do it all over again!

What better way to launch the 2018/2019 series than with Whispering Jack himself, John Farnham, playing at five almost completely sold-out events!

On Saturday, a capacity crowd at South Australia’s picturesque Leconfield Wines, McLaren Vale will see the much-loved icon perform with a stellar cast of guests, Daryl Braithwaite, Richard Marx, Russell Morris and Bachelor Girl. The following weekend there are two sold-out shows in the Hunter Valley NSW and Mount Cotton Qld, while more than 20,000 Victorian fans will attend two more sold-out shows at Rochford Wines, Yarra Valley on December 8 and 9.

In January, a day on the green welcomes the wondrous Florence + The Machine to Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong VIC with a sold-out crowd of 20,000.

February sees concerts headlined by Rodriguez, John Butler & Missy Higgins and Bryan Ferry, while in March we look forward to Bryan Adams and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

And turning our stages Golden, we’re thrilled to welcome pop princess Kylie Minogue to her first ever a day on the green shows, also in March, with special guest Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears. And it’s not just her fans looking forward to her outdoor shows. Speaking to News Corp’s national music writer Cameron Adams, Kylie said about a day on the green: “The whole concept sounds amazing, I’ve got friends who’ve been to them who rave about them, so I can’t wait.”

This season we continue our collaboration with the team behind RNB Fridays, bringing the second instalment of RNB Vine Days to some of our stunning venues nationally, including Perth for the first time. Leading the charge for RNB Vine Days 2019 is Nelly, Craig David, All Saints, Amerie and YO! MAFIA, guaranteed to have the crowds groovin’ on the greens!

Roundhouse Entertainment, promoter of a day on the green, has been a massive supporter of Australian music since day one, giving homegrown talent the opportunity to regularly perform on big stages. This season John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite, Russell Morris, Bachelor Girl, John Butler Trio, Missy Higgins, Mark Seymour & The Undertow, Xavier Rudd, Dan Sultan, Busby Marou, Pierce Brothers, Mahalia Barnes, Stella Donnelly, Alice Skye, Hatchie, Died Pretty, Models, and I’m Talking (who will be playing their first shows together in more than 30 years) will all grace the a day on the green stage.

For nearly two decades, a day on the green’s ethos of great food, wine and music in beautiful outdoor locations has provided unforgettable musical memories and amassed a hugely loyal following nationally. Commencing this weekend and running until April, a day on the green concerts will be staged across the country, sometimes with two or three events happening in different locations on the same day. Copycat events come and go, but the a day on the green experience remains unsurpassed.

On that note … we invite you to get a group of friends together for a day trip or a weekend away and we look forward to welcoming you to a day on the green somewhere around Australia this summer!
