Love heading to a scenic spot to dance to live tunes? Adore sipping wine, too? Music and vino festival Grapevine Gathering understands. That pairing is this annual event's entire setup, with the fest bringing a heap of bands to vineyards around Australia each year. And for 2023, it has just locked in its October dates and venues.
If you live in Queensland or South Australia, get ready to experience Grapevine Gathering on your home turf for a second time. After debuting in both states in 2022, the festival will return to Sirromet Wines at Mount Cotton and Serafino Wines in McLaren Vale.
On a five-state tour, the rest of fest will also once again hit up Western Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. Its destinations: Sandalford Wines in Swan Valley, Rochford Estate in the Yarra Valley and Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley, respectively.
Victoria will play host to the first gig of the tour on Saturday, October 7, with Grapevine Gathering then pinballing up to Queensland on Sunday, October 8. The next weekend, it heads west on Saturday, October 14, then does NSW on Saturday, October 21 and SA on Sunday, October 22.
At the moment, it's too early for the event's lineup, so watch this space. 2022's fests featured The Kooks, Peking Duk, The Veronicas, Ball Park Music, Confidence Man, Jack River and more. Before that, Two Door Cinema Club, Flight Facilities, The Wombats and Tkay Maidza have also graced Grapevine Gathering's stages.
Naturally, sipping wine is a huge part of the attraction. As always, attendees will have access to a heap of vino given the fest's locations, as well as an array of yet-to-be-announced food options.
