Headlined by Xavier Rudd, The Waifs, The Beautiful Girls and Busby Marou, the event runs from November 28-29 at Serafino Winery.
Festival Director, Alistair Cranney, says that while music will remain at the heart of the festival, this year will see added focus on the region’s food and wine.
For the first time ever, the festival will host a long table dinner called the Gorgeous Table event, which will take place on the Friday night. The dinner will have a City vs Country theme, and will be home to some of Adelaide and McLaren Vale’s best chefs.
“We’ll have four courses of banquet style shared platters, fine wine and theatrical entertainment in a gorgeously decorated setting,” says Alistair. It’ll also have “live music from ex-Powderfinger guitarist Darren Middleton, The Timbers and Working Dog Union”.
On Saturday, the acts include Little May, The Cairos, Elliot Brood, Kim Wempe, Tim Chaisson, and local artists Timberwolf, Echo & Empress and Run McArdle.
Xavier Rudd said he is excited to be a part of the festival: “I’m looking forward to getting out into the beautiful SA wine country – I haven’t been out there before and I love the name of the festival, because Australia is gorgeous! …I can’t wait to shake some South Australian booty with Uncle Tio and Bobby Alu”.
