Start Making March Plans: Golden Plains Is Returning for 2023 and the Ballot Is Now Open
Mark your calendars: the Aunty team is finally bringing back Golden Plains, and you can enter the ballot now.
September 29, 2022
Music lovers, here's news you've been waiting for for quite some time: pilgrimages to the Supernatural Amphitheatre for Golden Plains are back on. Keen? Oh-so-eager to make the trip after a few Golden Plains-free years? Then mark Saturday, March 11–Monday, March 13, 2023 in your diaries and go enter the just-opened ticket ballot right this second.
"The space-time continuum wobbles our way once again. A panoramic long weekend in the greatest of outdoors. Afternoon all day, sun like honey on the trees, back in the Amphitheatre Supernaturale. Night falls, and giant spikes of excitement send everything everywhere," the Aunty team advised, announcing the news to its email list.
The online ballot for Golden Plains XV will remain open until 10.15pm AEDT on Monday, October 17, which means that clicking ASAP is recommended.
Catering to 12,000 punters each year across three days and two nights, the fest has long proven a favourite for its one-stage setup, which skips the need for frantic timetabling. And, like Meredith Music Festival, its sibling, Golden Plains is also known for the Aunty crew's star-studded bills.
There's no signs of that lineup just yet, but watch this space — in past years, it has been announced in October.
Back in 2021, Golden Plains revealed that it wouldn't return in 2022, shifting focus to 2023 instead; however, now those big comeback dates are locked in.
Meredith is also returning, as announced in August, with Caribou, Yothu Yindi and Courtney Barnett leading the lineup from Friday, December 9–Sunday, December 11, 2022.
Golden Plains will return to the Meredith Supernatural Ampitheatre from Saturday, March 11–Monday, March 13, 2023. Head to the festival's website for further details, or to enter the ballot before 10.15pm AEDT on Monday, October 17.
