Grapevine Gathering announces WA expansion, plots 2019 dates
Organised by the crew behind Beyond The Valley, the festival will bring some of music's best to three locations this Summer.
Led by the crew behind Victorian mega-festival Beyond The Valley (and more, like dance event Pitch Festival and the Dylan Alcott-fronted Ability Fest), Grapevine Gathering is quickly blossoming into one of Australia's most exciting niche festivals, and it shows no sign of slowing down. Originally conceived in 2017 as a one-stop event at Victoria's Rochford Winery (headlined by The Preatures, Bag Raiders, Claptone and George Maple), the festival has evolved into a multi-state, multi-location celebration of great music and great wine, offering a look into some remarkably beautiful venues - wineries, to be exact - across Australia under-utilised for music events. In 2018, they expanded to New South Wales' Roche Estate with a lineup boasting The Wombats, The Jungle Giants and Client Liaison, further establishing themselves as a festival on the rise that in 2019, they're set to conquer on.
In 2019, the festival expands west to the Swan Valley, promising all those top-tier vibes - good music, good food and good wine (of course) - in their third location, Sandalford Wines. Additionally, there's also a change in the Victorian venue, with the Grapevine Gathering team announcing that it'll be held in their very own, all-new winery, aptly titled Grapevine. Considering the strength of their past lineups and the Untitled Group's ability to put together some of Australia's must-attend music events, Grapevine Gathering looks set to become one of WA's defining festivals over the next few years, occupying an otherwise relatively unexplored space with the potential to be big.
Keep an eye out for the 2019 lineup on Wednesday, June 5 at 12PM AEST/10AM AWST, and check the dates below:
