Back for another year of “alt-country twang” Victoria’s Out On The Weekend festival has just dropped a stellar lineup of acoustic troubadours and boot-scootin’ country bands for its 2016 event.
Taking place once again at the stunning Seaworks site in seaside Williamstown only minutes from the CBD, Out On The Weekend 2016 boasts a lineup full of local and international talent who are eager to play to Melbourne’s famously friendly audience.
Headlining will be the New Zealand-born but now Melbourne-based Marlon Williams & The Yarra Benders (pictured) who’ll be playing their only Melbourne show for the year at the event.
Williams said of the show: “Out On The Weekend will be nearly a year since our last headline show in Melbourne, and it’s a huge honour returning to headline a festival that puts my style of music front and centre. Can’t wait to play for everyone again.”
Also gracing the bill will be Robert Ellis, Canadian songstress Lindi Ortega, Chicago’s Joe Pug, Joshua Hedley, The Cactus Blossoms, Cash Savage & The Last Drinks, All Our Exes Live In Texas and more.
Also, as a special event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Denise Hyland’s Twang program on beloved community radio station 3RRR, a special instalment of Grand Ole Twang will be broadcast live-to-air from the Out On The Weekend main stage.
Out On The Weekend 2016 is set to take place on Saturday, 15th October. Catch the full lineup and ticketing details below.
