Taking over the lush farmland hamlet of Bambra for three stacked days of live music over the ANZAC long weekend, Meadow’s all-Australian seventh instalment will be headlined by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Angie McMahon, promising to draw some of the festival’s most devoted and attentive crowds yet.

Offering something for everyone, this year’s program also features Close Counters, Surprise Chef, Elizabeth, Cool Sounds, Sweet Whirl, Darcy Justice, 3K, Mimi Gilbert, Romero, Emma Volard, HTRK and Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boys, many of who were originally billed for last year’s event.

To keep punters safe, Meadow will be implementing a number of COVID-safe measures including capacity limits, temperature checks and COVID screening upon arrival, three designated and rotating viewing zones in the amphitheatre, assigned coloured wristbands denoting each attendee’s designated ‘viewing zone’ and more. Don’t fret if the vibe was your favourite part about Meadow, this change in circumstance will not negate the Meadow experience, with standing, sitting, singing, dancing, BYO and good vibes both permitted and encouraged within your designated zone.

Plus, this year’s physical event will also be followed by an online festival in May, capturing 14 artists, 2 sunsets, 2 sunrises, dancing, cocktails, camping and more from the Bambra Bowl so anyone who can’t make it along in person doesn’t have to miss out.

Meadow has also joined forces with Humanitix for its 2021 event in order to give back to the community, with each ticket purchase contributing to funding to support educational scholarships for disadvantaged Indigenous students in Australia.

A super limited release of tickets are now on sale with teenagers accompanied by adults free to join in the festivities with a valid full-priced ticket, and children under 12 invited to attend for free. Oh and car passes won’t be required this year, how good’s that?

Meadow is happening from Friday, April 23 until Sunday, April 25 in Bambra, Victoria. Tickets are on sale now via the festival website.
