If you're keen to spend three days in March dancing in the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre, get clicking now.
September 28, 2023
Each summer, the Aunty team unleashes the Meredith Music Festival, with 2023's fest on its way in December with Kraftwerk, Caroline Polachek, Alvvays, Alex G and more. Each autumn, it's Golden Plains time at the same Victorian spot — and while the lineup isn't here yet, the ballot for tickets has just opened.
Music lovers, 2024's pilgrimage to the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre to dance among the autumn leaves will take place from Saturday, March 9–Monday, March 11, 2024. So, mark those dates in your diaries ASAP. Then, go enter the just-launched ticket ballot right this second.
This round of Golden Plains will mark the fest's sweet 16th — and if you're wondering what's in store, the Aunty team has provided an evocative description, as usual. "A sublime time in the greatest of outdoors. All singing, all dancing, all afloat in the primordial Sup'. Come as you fancy," the team advised.
"Still waters run deep. Enhancement over advancement. Same size, same shape with no commercial sponsors, free range camping, BYO, the No D‑‑‑head Policy, and One Stage Fits All The Golden Treasures," the Aunty gang continued.
The online ballot for Golden Plains 2024 will remain open until 10.16pm AEDT on Monday, October 16, which means that clicking ASAP is recommended.
Catering to 12,000 punters each year across three days and two nights, the fest has long proven a favourite for its one-stage setup, which skips the need for frantic timetabling. And, like Meredith Music Festival, its sibling, Golden Plains is also known for the Aunty crew's star-studded bills.
There's no signs of that lineup just yet, but watch this space — in past years, including in 2023 when Bikini Kill, Carly Rae Jepsen, Soul II Soul and Four Tet led the bill, it has been announced in October.
Golden Plains will return to the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre from Saturday, March 9–Monday, March 11, 2024. Head to the festival's website for further details, or to enter the ballot before 10.16pm AEDT on Monday, October 16.
