Brought to music lovers thanks to the Untitled Group (the same organisers of Festival Beyond the Valley, Ability Fest, For The Love, Pitch Music & Arts, Wildlands, and more), Grapevine Gathering will be offering up a myriad of the ripest local talent as it takes to three of the best wine regions around Australia this October.
Leading the lineup is none other than party-starters Peking Duk, a duo renowned for giving you high energy dancefloor anthems for the good times. While we have always loved them as a loose-unit electronic act, the moment Adam and Reuben emerged from behind the decks and channelled their antics into the glorious shitstorm of energy that is a Peking Duk live show, they became legend.
Joining Peking Duk on this year’s program is a slab of homegrown talent including The Jungle Giants, Vera Blue, The Veronicas, San Cisco, CC:Disco!, King Stingray and Rest For The Wicked, with even more to be announced.
Alongsdie the juicy lineup, ex-tradies turned Instagram celebrities ‘The Uninspired Unemployed’ will be hosting Grapevine Gathering and performing changeover DJ sets around the country. The duo started their Instagram account during COVID out of boredom sharing hilarious skits and videos. They now have almost a million followers, have quit their day jobs as tradies, and have collaborated with the likes of Vogue, GQ and Louis Vuitton. 100% worth a look if you’re not all over it.
If that’s not a good enough Riesling to head along (oh yes we did), the festival will also host a huge selection of wine, craft beer, cocktails and an array of eats including woodfired pizzas, gourmet burgers, and smoked treats from their respective regions.
For Victorians, the festival will make its way back to Rochford Wines in the Yarra Valley on Saturday, October 16, following previous weekends at Sandalford Estate in the Swan Valley on October 2 and Roche Estate in the Hunter Valley on October 9.
You can register for presale here, which goes on sale Wednesday, February 24 at 3pm. General public tickets will go on sale Thursday 25th February, 12pm.
