The announcement of the inaugural Out On The Weekend Festival, Australia’s new Americana-themed event, meant sweet music to the ears of country and Western music fans nationwide. Now, the organisers have revealed an array of food and drink options to appeal to anyone with a taste for great cuisine.
Kicking off the ‘lineup’ are Big Day Out‘s famous “culinary outlaws”, Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz from Sydney’s Porteño and Bodega. The duo will be serving up their trademark smoked meat dishes, cooked on their own customised smoker. Just wait until you try the Jack Daniel’s marinated beef brisket.
The reigning King of Melbourne Street Food, Raph Rashid, will also be there, offering punters three different menus to get their tastebuds buzzing. Raph’s revolutionary Beatbox Kitchen will be dispensing the burgers and fries alongside his famous Taco Truck and his all-new RB’s Fried Chicken menu.
For those with a bit of a sweet tooth, Out On The Weekend has you covered with its All Day Donuts Menu, which features a mouth-watering selection including a chocolate jaffa donut, a strawberry cheesecake donut, passionfruit coffee, raspberry rubble, and of course, the Original Gangsta donut.
After that sugar rush, you may need a stiff drink and organisers have that covered too. The Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey will be flowing, while a selection of wines will be brought to you by locals Dixon Creek Estate. There’ll also be an array of craft beer, tap beer, wine, spirits, cocktails, and non-alcoholic options.
In addition to the stellar lineup, featuring Justin Townes Earle, Henry Wagons, and more, further cultural distractions will be provided by Triple R, who’ll be broadcasting live on the ground, and Levi’s, whose travelling Tailor Shop will give you a chance to customise your denim any way you like it. Warwick Brown of Greville Records will also be there with a carefully curated selection of new and vintage vinyl for sale.
