Away from the bustling cities and hidden between the hills this February will be the annual Grampians Music Festival. The two-day event boasts an array of Australian artists, as well as a range of local food and drink producers offering something for those of all ages to enjoy.
After just releasing their food and beverage offerings, Carly Flecknoe from GMF said “there are gluten-free and vegan options available”, and it seems that there is really something for everyone.
If you’re hungry to try some international cuisine there is plenty to be found. European Barbeque Catering (Turkish Gozleme) offers traditional Turkish food, and there are a range of Indian specialities on offer from Ballarat’s Masala Valley. There are hearty, mouth-watering options from Kebab King, and you can’t go past a classic pizza from We’re Fired Up – Wood Fired Pizza.
For those with a sweet tooth, Gelati Co has dessert sorted, with delicious ice cream to cool you down.
Boost Juice will be serving up your favourite smoothies and juices on the Valley Floor, and Great Coffee Moments will be keeping you caffeinated so you don’t miss a thing!
There are of course boozy options for the adults, with producers offering a range of high-quality beer, gin and cocktails for you to sip on throughout the festival. Patient Wolf Distilling Co. will be returning to the Grampians Music Festival as an official bar partner for the third year running. The Southbank (Melbourne) based boutique distillery specialises in gin and will be serving up a gorgeous menu of tailored cocktails for your Grampians festival experience!
If gin isn’t your first choice, Melbourne based brewing company Moon Dog Brewing Co. is also returning to the Grampians Music Festival for their second year, and will be slinging up their most interesting and delicious beers across the weekend.
There will also be free drinking water available so you can stay hydrated after dancing along to the crafted music line up, and punters are encouraged to bring their own refillable drink bottle.
This year the festival has even more on offer, showcasing local creatives while giving festival-goers a chance to buy a unique memento of their weekend away. “Don’t miss out on our I Made It Myself Market, with regional makers and upcyclers bringing their wares to the Valley Floor with jewellery, craft, upcycled fashion and plenty more,” Carly Flecknoe said.
With less than three weeks to go, now is the perfect time to rally your friends and organise your stay! Mark the 28th and 29th of February in your diary, as it is promising to be a fantastic festival in a picturesque setting.
