Melbourne's Dog-Friendly Music Festival is Back

The music event of every pet-lover's dreams of is back.

It's the kind of music event every pet-lover dreams of, and it's back for another year of cute puppies and pumping sounds. That'd be Dogapalooza, of course. Yep, it does have a rather excellent name — and that merry moniker is just the beginning.

After wowing crowds with their first fest last year, the dog-friendly shenanigans are bound to get tales wagging again at Richmond's Burnley Park. Expect everything from ethical eating options (including Dogapalooza's own in-house vegan BBQ)  to boutique dog product vendors.

Even though the music lineup isn't announced until August 26, we're betting that won't find the likes of Bow Wow and Snoop Dog on the bill, as on-theme as they would've been. That said, we're sure that the roster of acts will get your toes tapping regardless — and the paws of your furry best friend, of course.

Dogapalooza isn't just about a day of music-oriented bliss in the sun with your pet pooch, though. All proceeds go raised will go towards helping canines in need via Oscar's Law and Melbourne's dog rescue groups Stafford Rescue Victoria, Melbourne Animal Rescue and Puppy Tails Rescue.

Dogapalooza takes place at 11am on October 9 at Burnley Park, Richmond. Tickets are on sale now, and check out the festival's Facebook page for more information.
