Next March 2014 over the Labour Day Long Weekend, Geelong will rock out to the inaugural Motor City Music Festival.
We’re proud of our community, our icons past and present – from Ford cars to International Harvester tractors and trucks; our agricultural
past and our food and wine will all be showcased at the fantastic Geelong
We think Geelong needs to rock! So we’ve created a new three-day festival on the March long weekend to celebrate our place, our people and our icons with an awesome soundtrack.
The Motor City Music Festival will have something for everyone.
Adults will rock out on the fully licensed, over-18s only Friday night and Saturday (day and night).
On Sunday, patrons can bring the whole
family and enjoy a wider musical spectrum.
The event will wrap up with a huge
fireworks display on Sunday night.
We are presenting a range of rock, blues and roots music on five great stages on all three days, including some local legends and fun cover bands.
The stages will include one open-air and four undercover areas of varying sizes, including a beer hall, so we are providing a range of musical experiences and are prepared for all weather conditions.
There will also be gourmet food vans and carnival rides and on the Sunday many local community groups will showcase their activities.
