Red Hot Chili Peppers’ A Day On The Green show at Mt Dundeed near Geelong has gone on record as the fastest selling A Day On The Green show ever.
Geelong was also big for Florence + The Machine. Florence Welch told Triple J, “Geelong was crazy – there were just so many people. I couldn’t believe it, I was really moved by it. It was a really beautiful thing. There were people as far as I could see, it [Geelong] kind of had like a Woodstock feeling to it, it was outdoors and it was a really incredible show.”
A Day On The Green has completed its 2018/19 season with a line-up across the season including Florence + The Machine, Kylie Minogue, Bryan Ferry, Bryan Adams and John Butler Trio & Missy Higgins, Richard Marx, Jake Shears, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and Marlon Williams.
“We’re proud to consistently deliver premium outdoor concert experiences to the high standard a day on the green has become renowned for,” says A Day On The Green co-founder Mick Newton. “It’s a tough, competitive marketplace and to remain viable, it’s essential to grow the brand to reach new audiences. Securing diverse and high-profile acts such as Florence + The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kylie Minogue and Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road world tour is testament to our fantastic team who work hard to provide the best possible experience we can, as well as our loyal patrons and stakeholders who continue to support us and the artists we present.”
Australian acts in the just gone season included Daryl Braithwaite, Russell Morris, Mark Seymour & The Undertow, Dan Sultan, Busby Marou, Mahalia Barnes, Stephen Cummings, Models, as well as many “first-timers”, I’m Talking, Bachelor Girl, Pierce Brothers, Stella Donnelly, Hatchie, Slowly Slowly, Jack River and Client Liaison.
