Based on an incredible true story of Bert Trautmann, a Second World War German PoW,…
Gone are the days when the only festival happening in Canberra was Floriade.
Of course, we all love our iconic flower fest. However, Canberra’s festival scene has come in leaps and bounds. From food-centric and arty festivals, there are plenty of ways to fill your weekends. But for those of us who love a good vino, there’s one festival that owns our hearts.
Making its second appearance in the ACT, Wine Machine will roll into Canberra on Saturday 13 April, its final stop on a cross-country tour of Australia’s best wine regions.
Held at Lake George Winery and hosted by headliner DJ Hot Dub Time Machine, the festival will feature dance-gurus The Presets as well as Triple JJJ regulars Hayden James, Confidence Man, Graace, Kinder, Happiness is Wealth, and even a cheeky appearance from Alex Dyson – the ‘Rat Dog’ of breakfast from Triple J days of yonder.
With a focus on sun, food, wine and friends, this isn’t your classic music festival – there’s more of a focus on Grenache than glitter – but that doesn’t mean it’s any less of a party.
Before music-lovers get down on the dance floor, they’ll get a chance to get their mitts on the ‘best chardy ever’ at the many wine bars situated all over the winery with local drops, beers, sparkling and more.
There’s no need to drive (why would you?) with buses departing from the centre of Civic (in front of Canberra Theatre Centre) at 12 pm and 2 pm and returning there when the festival concludes at 10 pm. There will also be plenty of food options so you can spread out on the grass and pair your wine with some delicious eats.
There are still tickets available, so don’t miss out.
