Cherry Rock Reveals 2015 Lineup, New CBD Neighbours Told “Suck It Up”

Melbourne venue Cherry Bar – the one still kicking ass in AC/DC Lane – have announced the ninth annual Cherry Rock event, with American rock outfit Red Fang (pictured) set to headline the festival, which will take place on Sunday, 10th May.

Also named in the Cherry Rock’s sludgey 2015 lineup are New Zealand band Beastwars, Brisbane rockers HITS, Child – the Cherry Awards’ 2014 Act Of The Year, F*ck The Fitzroy Doom Scene, The Simpsons-inspired doom rockers Dr. Colossus, My Left Boot and Sydney’s Los Hombres Del Diablo. Five more acts are still to be announced.

Cherry Bar’s annual November event CherryFest was cancelled last year, but owner James Young has explained via Facebook (full post below) that Cherry Rock is going to go ahead.

“The new residents can just suck it up,” Young said, before citing concerns over nearby Peruvian restaurant Pastuso. Thankfully, the two establishments have come to an amicable agreement, as Young explained – “They host their annual staff party on Sunday 10 May and Cherry gives them all free tickets to come to CherryRock015”. Brilliant.

Cherry Bar are promising “two stages, 13 acts and no clashes” at Cherry Rock 2015. View the full lineup alongside ticket details, below.
