Delivering the Best. Chardy. Ever. across Australia

Wine Machine has announced its 2023 East Coast lineup, bringing some incredible names to the stage across three stunning sun-soaked soirées.

In March and April next year, Hunter Valley NSW, Canberra ACT and Yarra Valley VIC will play host to a decadent day of picnics and parties headed up by the likes of Hot Dub Time Machine, Lime Cordiale (excluding Vic), Bliss N Eso, Vera Blue (excluding NSW), Northeast Party House and more.

These East Coast dates join the already announced festivities in Swan Valley WA, McLaren Vale SA and Huon Valley TAS providing the perfect backdrop to create memorable moments at six remarkable regions across the country from November to April. With La Niña due to make a swift departure by the end of the year, the forecast is for clear skies, fun in the sun and good times ahead.

Alongside the live music, the spectacular Poof Doof Drag Jamboree will serve up a stack of fierce drag madness. Led by your hostess with the mostest Jimi the Kween, the festive and fabulous Jamboree will deliver mesmerising moments, interactive games and queer performance art so magical you’ll start to believe that unicorns exist. The best part is that the single stage format ensures you won’t miss a thing.

This year, Wine Machine will bring the party to a new home in the Hunter Valley, the stunning Dalwood Estate on the Saturday 18 March. Established on the beautiful Hunter River in 1828, Dalwood Estate is regarded as the birthplace of Hunter Valley wine. With carefully curated lawns to create a natural amphitheatre, you’ll feel right at home.

The festival will return to its home with views across Lake George at Commonwealth Park in Canberra on Saturday 25 March, then soak up the atmosphere and natural amphitheatre at Rochford Estate in Yarra Valley on Saturday 1 April.

Indulge in some of the finest locally sourced produce as you enjoy everything Wine Machine has to offer. It’s intimate, yet spacious. It’s a garden party by day and fun fiesta by night. Taking place in the heartland of Australia’s finest wineries, you can enjoy spacious surroundings to both laze and picnic and dance and mingle.

There’s a treasure trove of art installations, garden games, pop-up bars, gourmet delights and long table lunches at Wine Machine’s Cellar Door – a playground for all to enjoy.
