“Wow, it’s been 5 years? Here we go again with another extravaganza down by the water in the awesomely refurbished Seaworks at Williamstown. Welcome to new and old musical friends and legends, plus we have a few surprises down the line. It’s been fifty years since The Byrds with Gram Parsons in the line up gave us the genre creating “Sweetheart Of The Rodeo” so we have to celebrate that. We’re going to step up the food and booze offerings this year to even higher standards and varied options. Hot chicken and vegan food anyone? BBQ, burgers, tacos and more of course. Got some real experience type happenings and exhibition stuff to further enhance the almighty vibe too. We want everyone to know about our special day and we’re gonna say it loud and proud. Come back and join us for the good times.”

Tony Joe White cancellation:
It is with great regret we need to advice you that the forthcoming tour by the great Tony Joe White this October has been cancelled, Tony Joe is not a young man, and the years of rockin’ appear to be taking their toll. After a recent show at Nashville’s legendary Ryman, the great man was almost unable to walk after suffering severe pain in his calfs and had to be helped off the stage while in extreme pain. Since then the discovery of a bulging disk in his back has meant an immediate end to future engagements that involve significant travel until physical therapy can hopefully reinstate him to a healthy state for travel.
Tony Joe was to perform at the Out On The Weekend festival, as well as headline shows in Auckland, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney. Full refunds for the festival will be available for a week only until midnight on Tuesday, September 11. Ticket holders for all other shows will be contacted by the relevant ticketing agencies and receive a full refund.
