Setting up in one of Australia’s most picturesque national parks next February, the Grampians Music Festival (GMF) is bringing the Valley Stage back to the stunning paddock location in Halls Gap in 2020 on February 28 & 29 in what will be a display of outstanding Australian up and coming musical talent, boutique beer, wine and spirits, global cuisine and dancing in the dirt.
Last year saw some of Australia’s most impressive new artists grace the Grampians stage for its third edition, including the likes of Sampa The Great, Wafia, Slum Sociable and Angie McMahon, highlighting the festival’s strong focus on up-and-coming Australian artists who are distinctive, exciting and above all, supremely talented.
Now the GMF team is thrilled to finally lift the veil on its anticipated 2020 lineup, serving up some of Australia’s best names to ensure that the next installment is going to be unforgettable.
Leading the charge on the 2020 bill will be one of Australia’s brightest exports and songwriters, Julia Jacklin. Having just made global headlines for her recent live duet with Lana Del Rey, Jacklin’s 2019 has gone from strength to strength as she’s continued to establish herself as a world-class performer.
Joining Jacklin at the Grampians Music Festival this year, a variety of artists who are all killing it in their own lanes come together to shape what is looking to be easily the biggest year of the festival yet, including Ecca Vandal, These New South Whales, DRMNGNOW and Maddy Jane. That’s barely scraping the surface of the announcement, but it sure is a fiery example of the representation of star talent on this year’ Grampians Festival lineup. Peep the full lineup below!
“I’m very proud of this lineup and what it says about the Grampians Music Festival,” says festival director Carly Flecknoe. “We are blessed to have this much talent on our bill! Julia Jacklin has hit her straps both here and overseas, and her from-the-heart songwriting style is pure magic. Alongside Ecca Vandal and These New South Whales rounding out the top of the bill is a blend of an incredible mix of the artists that are making waves in Australia at the moment. It’s going to make for a very special weekend.”
It’s clear they’ve got the love of discovering music at the heart of GMF. Differing to the standard festival program which has multiple bands across multiple stages at the same time, The Grampians Music Festival sets itself apart with only one stage, allowing punters to enjoy all the genre-spanning up-and-coming musicians who take to the stage. So all those acts we’ve just mentioned… you will be able to see EVERY SINGLE one of them. There’s no trying to work out a schedule and compromise who you see – and that’s why we absolutely adore it.
It sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? A sunny weekend away with mates and music. A showcase of the best new bands making music all over the country. Local produce, beer, and wine. Big mountains, huge sounds, and a beautiful, chilled-out vibe. What’s not to love? All that’s left to do now is to round up the crew and secure your tickets!
Tickets are available now, including camping and shuttle options for punters who want to enjoy the full Grampians experience. Packages include 2 Day and Single Day Festival passes, included in the variety of options on offer for those who want to kick on and camp out under the stars.
