Easter weekend is set to serve up much more than just chocolate and bellyaches this year — it also marks the return of much-loved music festival Boogie, which is headed back to Tallarook for its jam-packed 16th instalment.

Descending on its longtime rural home from Friday, April 7–Sunday, April 9, the annual celebration of tunes and good vibes is set to deliver as stacked a lineup as ever. Joining in the fun this time around are the likes of jazz-funk four-piece Surprise Chef, 'cosmic country' star Freya Josephine Hollick, Grinspoon's Phil Jamieson, punk legends Private Function, USA outfit The Pink Stones and Sugar D, plus stacks more.

Suprise Chef

Willie J and the Bad Books, Headspin, Queenie and Full Flower Moon Band will be coming to the party, as will Eils & The Drip, REB, Collingwood Cassanovas and Foggy Notion. There'll be multiple stages, serving a juicy blend of everything from blues and alt-country, to indie rock and electro.

What's more, the skilled selectors at 1800 Lasagne have curated a late-night lineup to have you dancing till the wee hours, featuring high-energy acts like Wax'o Paradiso, Andee Frost, David Smiley and Sophie McAlister. You'll even catch the 1800 Jazzagna band, joined by the likes of James Tom and Deadnecks firing up The Clubhouse. Stay tuned, because there's more to be announced, too.
