ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
NOISEWORKS - For nearly a decade Noiseworks reigned as one of Australia's most popular and most acclaimed rock bands. Led by the charismatic Jon Stevens, the band sold in excess of 1.2 million albums that spawned 15 hit singles including 'No Lies', 'Take Me Back', 'Hot Chilli Woman' and 'Love Somebody' resulting in a domination of charts and radio airwaves. Since reforming, Noiseworks have retained their brilliant live reputation and are working on their first new album since 1991.

IAN MOSS - 'Mossy' holds a revered place in Australian music. His soulful vocals and incredible guitar playing ensure his live sets are always amazing. Fresh from the extraordinary Cold Chisel reunion tour which included a killer Wodonga show last week, and performing songs covering both his Chisel and solo careers, this master musician will be in red hot form.

DRAGON - With an unforgettable run of chart-toppers like 'Are You Old Enough', 'April Sun In Cuba', 'Still In Love With You', 'Rain' and many others, Dragon's legacy is of one of Australasia's most successful pop bands. Joined several years ago by veteran vocalist Mark Williams as front man, a revitalised Dragon release a new EP 'Chase The Sun' in November and are thrilled to be back on stage again.

MI-SEX - New Zealand new wave rockers Mi-Sex enjoyed massive hits like 'But You Don't Care', 'Graffiti Crimes' and the unforgettable 'Computer Games' but lead singer Steve Gilpin's tragic death forced the band into hiatus. The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal concert saw former Noiseworks bass player and Electric Hippies vocalist Steve Balbi front and centre for a one-off reunion show. The chemistry was undeniable and the band are now back in action.

1927 - Fronted by singer Eric Weideman, 1927's classic album "...ISH" remains one of the highest selling debut albums ever by an Australian artist with songs like 'That's When I Think Of You', 'If I Could', 'You'll Never Know' and 'Compulsory Hero' dominating charts and to this day, remaining radio favourites. The band's well-crafted songs and videos and a relentless touring schedule propelled them to become of the country's most popular classic rock bands.

CHOIRBOYS - 'Run to Paradise', 'Boys Will Be Boys' and 'Never Gonna Die' are some of the rock classics that helped put the Choirboys distinctive stamp on Aussie rock'n'roll. Headed by rock belter Mark Gable, they charted a course from pubs to the charts with unflagging energy and commitment. The Choirboys will kick off the day in great style.

This summer marks the 11th year of a day on the green events. After nearly 300 shows and more than two million happy patrons, the a day on the green experience of good food, good wine and great music is firmly established as one of Australia's most popular concert events.
