Live Music at our Wine & Food Festival in the Grampians

Grampians Grape Escape is not just a celebration of wine and food talent, but also of national and local musical talent.

This year’s music stage will feature everything from rockgrass and Americana blues to heavy flamenco and trop-pop and these good vibes will make the perfect accompaniment to a fun festival weekend.

ANDY NELSON

Andy Nelson hit the local scene in 2017, and it didn’t take long before the troubadour decided he would enter the realm of song writing – and he has never looked back. Performing his debut album, Man on the Mountain, we are now counting down the days until we’re listening to his stunning vocals and captivating lyrics, accompanied by the mesmerising Amy Viola on violin.

ZOË FOX AND THE ROCKET CLOCKS

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…a band opened up the ancient bag of long forgotten secrets of the cosmos.
That band, was “Zoë Fox and the Rocket Clocks” and we are most excited to see this 4-piece Timeless Space Pop band launch into a mixed salad of psychedelic pop, enter time warps of soft lullabies and then blast into the future with classic disco pop.

MALCURA

FLAMENCO MEETS ROCK!

That’s what will greet your ears when Malcura hits the GGE stage. You may have already seen the boys in action when Malcura attracted worldwide attention with renditions of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” in the Bourke Street Mall. These guys are also giggin’ at Paper, Scissors Rock Brew Co on the Friday so don’t miss them.

GEOFF ACHISON & THE SOUL DIGGERS

From Melbourne to Memphis, Aussie guitarist-songwriter Geoff Achison has been entertaining audiences around the world playing electrifying blues-rock with his band The Souldiggers for years. Touring solo and bringing together the best musicians available to form his band, you’ll see exactly why Geoff has successfully established himself in the UK, US and Australia.

19-TWENTY

Prepare for a high-energy Saturday afternoon as our country’s most electric blues & roots band, 19-Twenty, will whip up a frenzy again at this year’s Grampians Grape Escape. With infectious riffs and groove, these lads have been starting parties on Australian and International festival circuits for years and we can’t wait to have them back.

VONDA BOUYS & THE FALSETTOS

When Vonda Bouys first met the Falsettos, there was an explosion of false eyelashes, spectacles & skivvies…and we loved it!! We know these guys will get your booty-shaking with 60s dance classics played on double bass, trombone, sax, keys, drums and of course, Vonda Bouys on vocals.  So get yourself ready for some hip-twisting tunes!

ASH & JAS

Grampians Grape Escape is not just about supporting regional producers, but also regional artists. On top of the acclaimed Neil Murray, our line up also includes the delightful Ash & Jas to welcome Sunday festival goers with a mix of covers.

With such gorgeous vocals, we are thrilled to be able to bring homegrown Grampians talent to the GGE stage.

GRETTA ZILLER

Ziller’s sound may bear the hallmarks of classic Americana music but its essence is far more diverse. The Melbourne songstress’ roots span jazz, blues, rock, pop and classical. You’ll get a taste of that eclectic musical upbringing with songs from her new album, Queen of Boomtown,’ which has already has garnered recognition with industry & fans alike.

NEIL MURRAY

An hour’s drive south east of Halls Gap in Lake Bolac resides one of Australia’s most respected singer songwriters – Neil Murray. Neil first emerged in the early 1980’s as a founding member of the pioneering Warumpi Band that helped make contemporary Indigenous music heard in mainstream Australia. Neil is well known for penning “ My Island Home” which was later recorded by Christine Anu.

QUARRY MOUNTAIN DEAD RATS

Taking it back to a simpler time, where the pickin’ was fast and the banjo was king, the Quarry Mountain Dead Rats tear into their songs setting the tone for a foot-stomping good time. Mandolin – Banjo – Guitar – Bass + Washboard…this is a set you don’t want to miss on the Sunday of  GGE.

MIGHTY DUKES & THE LORDS

This horn-blaring, junk-percussion-smashing ‘trop-pop’ quintet have been labelled many things since they kicked off their tropical party revolution. Knights in white linen. Seamen without a cause. Adorned by stage-décor of flamingos, rum-bottles and beach balls, and a wardrobe of crisp pink & white, it won’t be hard to see their mainstay appeal as a bona fide festival favourite.

LADIES OF THE 80’s

Walkmans, Neon, Mullets, Spandex, Mixed Tapes and truck loads of make up…there isn’t a part of the 80s that we don’t want to do again! Everything was a little louder back then and so will be The Ladies of the 80s when they take the festival out on the Sunday.

Think Paradise City, Walk Like An Egyptian and who could forget Boom Boom Boom?!
