A CELEBRATION OF 1969, AND MORE ACTS ADDED.

It was 50 years ago. The Summer Of Love, Woodstock, Neil Armstrong sets foot on the moon, the 747 plane is introduced, the Easy Rider film is released, the Beatles perform on the roof of the Apple building, the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am muscle car is introduced, Richmond win the VFL Grand final.

OUT ON THE WEEKEND festival celebrates three of the finest of those albums with unique performances.

Bob Dylan’s reflective and countrified NASHVILLE SKYLINE and Dusty Springfield’s southern soul masterpiece DUSTY IN MEMPHIS will be performed by a soon-to-be-announced all-star cast with musical backing from Pete Luscombe, Dan Kelly, Bill McDonald and Clio Renner.

Neil says Time Fades Away and it sure is going quick. This day is so special to me. I started it to celebrate stuff I love, and hoped there were like-minded people out there that would be the same, and there were! We have built a solid community of good times folks at this event and the kind words, hugs and high fives I get at it and all year long make it a pleasure to create it every year. See you there.

BT, Love Police
