HOT Dub Wine Machine will return for its second year in the Swan Valley next week, with the national tour kicking off at Oakover Grounds.

The inaugural music festival was a hit last year, attracting more than 12,000 people to the valley and making it the one of the largest and most vibrant events on the national tour.

As well as a new location for the event, this year’s event will also include The Cellar Door – a dedicated space boasting pop-up bars, lounges, giant garden games, photo swings and a new VIP two-storey Skydeck in the middle of the mosh pit.

Festival director Chris Murray said Wine Machine was unlike any other festival currently on offer.

“Wine Machine’s point of difference and largely its popularity lies in the event having captured the impossible to capture market – it’s opened the Pandora’s box audience-wise,” he said.

“It is hugely appealing to young professionals who are discerning with their tastes but that these days don’t get to music festivals.

“Wine Machine combines the more mature pastime of heading to a winery with the fun of a live concert experience, but unlike other winery concerns doesn’t have a grey-haired or baby boomer artist line up.

“Wine Machine’s performing artists are the creme de la crme of the current Australian contemporary music scene.”

As well as providing music, the event also provides wide open spaces, gourmet food and wine.

Mr Murray said he was looking forward to seeing the event at a new venue.

Hot Dub Wine Machine will kick off at Oakover Wines on February 17 from 1pm.
