Meredith Music FestivalTwenty-six years ago, the Meredith Music Festival began as a party for roughly 200 people in the country. Since then, it has grown into a celebration of music, hosting 17000 people over the three days.
Previous acts have included Neil Finn, Hilltop Hoods and Gotye, drawing patrons from all over the country to spend the weekend among the gum trees with good music and a great environment. The festival is held at the Meredith supernatural amphitheatre, which is found on the edge of a farm, roughly 90 km west of Melbourne. The combination of good music, a beautifully natural site and relaxed crowd produces a truly unique festival for those who love music and the outdoors.
Tickets are highly coveted to this event, with the best way to buy them through a ballot. There are two rounds of the ballot, where majority of the tickets are distributed, and then a final online sale. All details can be found on the website.
