What you need to know
Our favourite full-bodied summer festival is back in action in 2018, with Hot Dub Wine Machine announcing another round of shows across the country, featuring the likes of Hot Dub Time Machine, plus very special guests Sneaky Sound System, The Kite String Tangle, Touch Sensitive, Luke Million and Owl Eyes.
Making a very special appearance, from the studios of Triple J, the one and only Tom Tilley will also be behind the decks mixing some of his top-notch 80s Australiana-aesthetic loving synth-pop, too.
With the popularity growing year on year, this year Oakover Grounds will set the stage for Hot Dub Wine Machine on 17 February 2018. Complete with food, wine, beer, markets and picnic-ing, Oakover is a 165-year-old winery, that lies in the beating heart of the Swan Valley, and has something for everyone. An expansive vineyard edged with gorgeous green gardens, towering hundred-year-old trees, and a huge lake, the venues relaxed vibe will give you the option to take a time out under the trees or party on the main stage to your heart’s content.
