Out On The Weekend To Return In 2018

Saturday October 13

Margo Price To Be Headliner

 

Love Police has announced that its Out On The Weekend Americana one-day extravaganza will return for year number five.

Again, this special event will be held at the Seaworks facility at Williamstown VIC which will be refurbished.

Here’s BT from Love Police:

“Welcome to new and old musical friends and legends, plus we have a few surprises down the line.  It’s been fifty years since The Byrds with Gram Parsons in the line up gave us the genre creating “Sweetheart Of The Rodeo” so we have to celebrate that.  We’re going to step up the food and booze offerings this year to even higher standards and varied options.  Hot chicken and vegan food anyone?  BBQ, burgers, tacos and more of course.  Got some real experience type happenings and exhibition stuff to further enhance the almighty vibe too.  We want everyone to know about our special day and we’re gonna say it loud and proud.  Come back and join us for the good times.”

 

Leading the charge of artists will be Americana/alt. country break-out Margo Price and her band in what will be her first appearance Down Under.  It’s been a well-deserved rise for an artist who is forging her own career path by doing it her way.  She and her partner had to sell their car in order to contribute to the recording costs of her debut release Midwest Farmers Daughter.  It was worth the gamble as that release attracted critical acclaim and placed her well and truly in the roots music spotlight.

She has always continued to do things her own way – signed with non conventional record label (Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville), championing her own marijuana strain with smoking buddy (and musical guest) Willie Nelson and bringing some outlaw country swag to major festivals like Glastonbury, Bonnaroo and more.  Her follow-up release All American Made upped the ante with some withering insights, has seen her make the Billboard chart and invited to television programs ranging from Saturday Night Live to the late Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown.

All American Made made a prominent spot in the Listening Through The Lens Top Twenty Albums 2017.  We also caught her live with the full band on the Cayamo music cruise and she shone like a diamond.  It is quite a coup to get her here as she is in much demand in the USA.

Here’s an intimate version of the title track of here latest release:

 

 

 

Other acts will be rolled out over the next few weeks.

Early bird TICKETS and CRIPPLE CREEK FERRY packages are available right now, right HERE.
