We are thrilled to have Australia’s iconic entertainment presenter Dylan Lewis back as our live music stage emcee to head our incredible musical line-up. 

Dylan has been on our televisions for decades on shows including Recovery, Video Hits and Pepsi Live. However, he has also played in his own bands and is a passionate supporter of mental health and children’s charities – truly an incredible human worth coming out to see.  

So make sure you head to the main stage for a boogie and to catch Dylan doing his thing.


You probably know Merrick Watts as the Australian comedian who has been making us all laugh for more than 25 years, but did you know he is also a legit wine expert?

Merrick has completed advanced wine qualifications and is passionate about Australian wines of all types. So essentially, Merrick is the ideal dinner guest. He can bring the perfect drop and make you laugh.

Merrick is the Demonstration Marquee emcee and will host his comedy show, An Idiot’s Guide To Wine, on Sunday where he will take the crowd on a hilarious journey during this show as they try six wines from the Grampians and Pyrenees regions together.
