Margo Price has been announced as the first act for this year’s out On The Weekend Festival at Seaworks in Williamstown, Melbourne on Saturday October 13.
Leading the charge of artists as they roll out over the next few weeks, Love Police has announced the very first appearance Down Under for Americana breakout star PRICE and her band. Price has worked in a non-conventional record label in Jack White’s Third Man Records, championing her own marijuana strain with smoking buddy Willire Nelson and bringing some good old-fashioned fashion outlaw country swag to major festivals like Glastonbury, Bonnaroo and more. Price’s two critically acclaimed studio releases in Midwest Farmers Daughter and All American Made crash landed the Billboard chart and found the Americana singer/songwriter invited to television programs ranging from Saturday Night Live to the late and great Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown.
Out On The Weekend will be rolling out the other acts and activities for the great day over the next few weeks. Early bird TICKETS and CRIPPLE CREEK FERRY packages are available right now, right HERE.
“Wow, it’s been 5 years? Here we go again with another extravaganza down by the water in the awesomely refurbished Seaworks at Williamstown,” said Festival Director Brian taranto. “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.”
