Music and wine come together for a party in the vines.
September 25, 2019
UPDATE: MARCH 15, 2020 — Organisers have announced that Wine Machine is rescheduling its 2020 Melbourne event "due to global coronavirus concerns". Originally scheduled for Saturday, March 28, it will now take place on Saturday, October 31. All tickets will be honoured for the rescheduled dates.

Since 2011, DJ Tom Loud's travelling dance party Hot Dub Time Machine has ripped up stages the world over, offering a rolling crossfade of the last six decades of pop-music. And three years ago he launched Wine Machine, a series of al fresco get-togethers on some of the country's most-loved wine regions.
The Wine Machine events were a success and the tour will be returning to Yarra Valley's Rochford Wines for a fourth year on on Saturday, October 31. The boutique event will run from early afternoon through to after dark. Leading the music will be one of Hot Dub's signature sets, which will see audiences dancing their way from 1954 to today, as the DJ mixes best-known songs from each year.
He'll be joined on stage by NZ alt-rockers The Naked & Famous, indie four-piece The Jungle Giants, Aussie dance legends Bag Raiders and Brisbane DJ Young Franco. You can check out the full lineup below.
Backing up the tunes, there'll be a tasty lineup of eats, craft beer and, of course, some sensational vino from these Australian wine regions. Safe to say, it's probably the rowdiest event these wineries will host all year.
