Ever dreamt of playing alongside Hiatus Kaiyote, Methyl Ethel, Tropical Fuck Storm and heaps more in the epic surrounds of Bambra in Regional Victoria?

Taking over the lush farmland hamlet of Bambra for three stacked days of live music from March 25-27, 2022, Meadow Festival is returning with a 100% homegrown bill of diverse and genre-expanding acts – and they’ve got just one more slot of fill on their lineup. 

Continually evolving and now in its eighth year, this festival is at the peak of its game and it’s offering the opportunity of a lifetime for emerging artists from Geelong, Surf Coast or the Otways to score themselves the opening slot on the lineup alongside this year’s eclectic menagerie of artists.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Yes, that’s right… you, your band or one of your favourite local acts could be joining the 2022 lineup, sharing the stage with the likes of this year’s headliners Hiatus Kaiyote, Methyl Ethel, Tropical Fuck Storm, Maple Glider, MOD CON, Gabriella Cohen, Youth Group, Emma Russack & Lachlan Denton, Izy, Cookii, Middle Name Dance Band, Mess Esque and Teether & Kuya Neil, and more. 

Previous years have seen victors in local dirty blues outfit Matt Bourke & The Delusional Drunks, and local modern rock folk outfit Grand Pine (with roots in Ocean Grove) who had the task of knocking punters straight into festival-mode when the stage powers up on day one.

The best part about the competition is that it’s not one of those excruciatingly long applications processes with 101 ridiculous questions. Keeping it simple, all you have to do is fill in your main details (name, email, phone number) and then explain how you or your band are connected to the local area (Geelong/Surf Coast/Otways) in 40 words or less. Finish it up with a link to your music and voilà, you might have just earned your place on the 2022 lineup!

Applications are open now until midnight on January 23 2022 and you can enter here.  

With the backdrop of a rugged edge-of-the-world type beauty found only in the Otway Hinterlands, a unique vibe, a killer lineup and BYO, Meadow Music Festival offers uniquely intimate performances with no overlapping set times, perfectly curated for the audiences who attend each year and for artists who want to be heard.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.

Meadow is happening from Friday, March 25 until Sunday, March 27 2022 in Bambra, Victoria. Find out more here
