Out On The Weekend Music Festival: Bigger Than Texas, Better Than Ever!

Get ready, music lovers, because on October 14th, 2023, Seaworks, Williamstown, Victoria, will be the epicenter of a Americana music and alt-country treats that’s set to be “Bigger than Texas.” The Out On The Weekend Music Festival is back with a bang, and this year, it’s bringing even more incredible acts to its line-up. From across the seas (naturally because we are SEA-works) and over the borders, artists are converging for a one-day-only event that’s sure to have you dancing and twostepping to your heart’s content.

A Global Line-Up of Musical Marvels

The festival promises a diverse array of musical talents, spanning genres and borders. Hailing all the way from the USA, the beloved JENNY DON’T AND THE SPURS are making a triumphant return, reigniting the red-hot buzz they generated during their tour last year. Get ready to keep that fire burning this October!
Adding a touch of Texan charm to the festival is the Texan schoolteacher-turned-troubadour, SUMMER DEAN. This will mark her first time on Australian soil, and we can’t wait to be enchanted by her soulful tunes. Another artist to watch out for is NAT MYERS, a rising star from Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye label stable, who will be bringing his blend of Kentucky roots ‘n’ blues to the stage.

Local Heroes and Intimate Stories

Out On The Weekend is all about celebrating the troubadours and traveling musicians of Australia. Nar Nar Goon’s very own PAULINE ‘BONES’ MACKINNON will grace the stage with her unique fusion of country, rock, and folk, showcasing songs and stories that resonate with audiences of all kinds. From the picturesque Sunshine Coast hinterland comes the enchanting BUD ROKESKY, whose heartfelt crooning will transport you to another world as he performs tracks from his acclaimed debut album.

A Melodic Melting Pot from Near and Far

Crossing the Yarra River is no obstacle for THE COLLINGWOOD CASANOVAS, who are bringing their irresistible bluegrass picking and harmonious melodies all the way from Melbourne. Hailing from Western Australia, we’re excited to introduce the spellbinding sounds of THE BURES BAND. Imagine
the sonic lovechild of Tame Impala and a country band, and you’ve got the idea!

The Ultimate Musical Line-Up

These incredible artists join an already star-studded ensemble including ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL, MELISSA CARPER, WILLIE WATSON, THE PINK STONES, CHARLOTTE LE LIEVRE, WATTY THOMPSON, and a special all-star tribute to the legendary LINDA RONSTADT, featuring the Violet Town country cowgirl ELLA HOOPER. And the best part? There are still more surprises in store!

Out On The Weekend offers more than just a sensational musical experience. Jump on the Cripple Creek Ferry, the journey to the festival is as much a part of the adventure as the event itself. And once you’re there, you’ll find an abundance of food and drink options to keep you energized throughout the day.
