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. And if that isn’t enough, the Flying Burrito Brothers’ country rock cornerstone THE GILDED PALACE OF SIN will be performed by Lost Ragas and Australian music icon Brian Cadd who was part of a previous incarnation of the Burrito’s.

LOST RAGAS, RUBY BOOTS, SEAN McMAHON & THE OWLS and LITTLE GEORGIA also join the all-star lineup for Out On The Weekend 2019.

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.

You want some of the finest alt-country/Americana artists on the planet? Established names plus emerging talents guaranteed to blow your mind? Some truly first-rate food, fine alcohol, record shops, two step dancing, barber and beauty saloon, vintage clothing stores, spontaneous good times and random friend finding? It’s all here. And this year there’s a new stage that promises even more mind bending good times.

OUT ON THE WEEKEND is all about music – and a whole lot more. It’s a full family-orientated, kid friendly afternoon/evening down by the water, with all stages, food and activities in one area. This isn’t Luna Park – it’s Cosmic Americana Park.

And yes, it’s 50 years since 1969, the glorious Summer Of Love which was a ground-breaking year in music. Just stop and think how many great records came out that year. And OUT ON THE WEEKEND will celebrate that with a number of full album recreations by a diverse array of artists.

Look at the initial array of talent coming to OUT ON THE WEEKEND. Just savor this.
