Stars & Bars Festival Heathcote

The Trail Blazin', Star Gazin', Hell Raisin' Countrified Music Festival Concept, part magical mystery music bus tour part winery/brewery tour is expanding across Space & Time returning with a 2 day festival event schedule across Friday 26th & Saturday 27th April, 2024.

Make a Real Long Weekend of it in 2024 with Stars & Bars Festival Heathcote! To coincide with the Anzac Day Public Holiday (Thursday 25th April) We've cooked up a new Friday Night Family Dinner with great mates at The Union Hotel Heathcote where you'll enjoy Dinner & A Show Stars & Bars style on the Friday night before the main event kicks off on Saturday.

On Saturday jump aboard The Heathcote Express our Epic Multi Locale Magical Mystery Musical Bus Tour culminating in the traditional Palling Bros Brewery Evening Session.

The Heathcote Express Bus Tour rolls out Saturday 27th April from 10:30am where you'll enjoy sweeping vistas at Red Edge Winery for Morning Tea, lunch at the historic Tooborac Hotel & Brewery then onwards to Lady’s Pass to settle in at Munari Wine for the afternoon with the final destination on this whistle stop tour Palling Bros Brewery’s Beer Garden the perfect place for the climactic Evening Session.

Having won some very loyal fans with 2023’s outing, this year’s expanded edition returns with some fresh new locales as well as a cracking handpicked unit of Mavericks, Maestros & Misfits..

The Seven Ups, Nathan Seeckts, Riley Catherall, Luke Sinclair, The Drunken Poachers (Trio), Grim Fawkner, Jungle Jim Smith, Bill Barber + special guest DJ Chunky Love

Soundtrack your sonic sojourn in Central Victoria with everything from Alt Country & Americana to Heavy Groove, Funk & Cinematic Soul to Deep Delta Blues and Electric Jungle Boogaloo and a heavy dosage of Old Time Rock’n’Roll for good measure.

Going Up The Country ... Stars & Bars Festival Heathcote brings together a combination of amazingly talented artists, an exploration of the finest wine, beer, spirits, food & hospitality the Heathcote region is quickly becoming known for & some truly unique locales as the backdrops for the event.

Our Locales are much more than just pubs and wineries; they are immersive spaces with stories to tell, ideally suited for musical performances boasting indoor/outdoor stages with stunningly serene vistas.

What better way could you spend the (Almost) Anzac Day Long weekend than to Leave The City behind & get On The Road Again. The Friday night & Saturday Festival program  leaves ample time to Explore Heathcote on Friday & Sunday as you make your way to & from your Central Victoria Long Weekend Stay-Cation. Relax with friends old & new, take some time to tune in, drop out & breathe in some of that rarefied country air.

Alright Ramblers, Let's Get Rambling...
