Good food, fine wine and great music in magnificent locations... welcome to a day on the green!
The 2016/2017 summer season was our sixteenth, a significant milestone of which we are very proud. This season we also celebrated our 400th show!
Promoters Michael and Anthea Newton of Roundhouse Entertainment began a day on the green in Victoria with the first show on Australia Day 2001. Since then it has grown to become firmly established as one of Australia’s most successful and respected outdoor concert events.
A glittering array of International and Australian stars have performed during the past 16 years providing unforgettable musical memories. a day on the green is far more than a concert event, it is an “experience” and that is what sets it apart from other winery concerts.
Being able to bring your own food, the popular ‘picnic of the day’ prize, our resident DJ and party master Grand Master Baitz spinning the tunes between bands, the chance to meet artists at the signing desk and our hugely popular merchandise range are some of the little extras that go into making a day on the green such a great day.
A Sydney newspaper coined the phrase which still remains true – it is “the Big Day Out for grown-ups”.
a day on the green runs in the summer months from October – March with around 30 concerts per season in the all major wine-growing regions around Australia.
a day on the green has spawned four albums and three TV specials, and our live events are a highlight of the summer concert calendar.
So get a group of friends together, pack your picnic baskets and let us welcome you to a day on the green!
