The greatest event to grace Geelong’s rock scene is back for its 12th year.
That’s right you little rockers, we’re talking about River Rocks – the self-funded festival that’s featured some dream bands over the years, initially born out of the lack of bands bypassing Geelong and how the local music scene had seemingly dropped away.
Hosted by the Barwon Club Hotel, last year saw punters being surrounded by the best music possible including Magic Dirt, Rose Tattoo, the Hard Ons and Six ft Hick, alongside Hits, I Spit On Your Gravy, Front End Loader, The Chats, Harmony, Pillow, Senor No from Spain, Meatbeaters, Totally Unicorn, and more.
This year the BC have upped the ante and the celebrations will be headed by Aussie legends the Cosmic Psychos, The Meanies, Hard Ons, Rocket Science, Los Chicos, Cable Ties, Pinch Points, Dr Colossus, Dicklord and so much more. You can peep the full lineup below!
Yet again nailing a lineup that promises to sell-out, the crew at The Barwon Club are bringing back their third instalment of River Rocks Rehab, a second day introduced back in 2017 due to the momentous occasion of a tenth anniversary, and in order to keep the peace on the streets. Full lineup and ticket info TBA, but save the date for November 10.
It all goes down Saturday, November 9. Tickets to River Rocks 2019 go on sale at 9am Tuesday August 20 – and they WILL sell out. We warned ya.
