No one celebrates the nostalgic, old-school cool of regional Australia quite like the crew at OK Motels. The group not only captures the essence of Victoria's classic motels through its dreamy Instagram shots, it's also known for transforming these oft-forgotten spaces into unlikely party destinations. And you'll catch the next of these when OK Motels returns to the Charlton Motel — about a three-hour drive northwest of Melbourne's CBD — on Saturday, November 23.

The rural town, which usually has a population of around 1000, will again play host to a lively night of tunes and dancing, as the likes of Amyl and the Sniffers, Batpiss, Moaning Lisa, Moody Beaches, Pinch Points and DJ Hot Wheels descend on the Charlton's 70s-era function room. Don your finest op-shop threads, nab a primo spot beneath the disco ball and get ready to tear the town's roof off.

If you're quick, you can score a stay on-site in one of the Charlton's own rooms; otherwise, there'll be a handy shuttle bus servicing nearby camping, caravan park, hotel and motel options.
