A Day On The Green Milestone
After 16 years in operation and ticket sales of 3 million, Australia’s A Day On The Green winery series celebrates a milestone Nov 19, which its 400th show in two states. Singer-songwriters Rodriguez, Xavier Rudd, Russell Morris and Archie Roach are at the Bimbadgen Estate in the Hunter Valley, NSW. Over at Peter Lehmann Wines in South Australia’s Barossa Valley are rock bands You Am I, Something For Kate, Spiderbait, Jebediah and the Meanies. “The idea of getting together with some friends to enjoy good food and wine with great music in a picturesque location is as appealing now as ever,” said Mick Newton, co-director of Roundhouse Entertainment. From a single show outside Melbourne on Jan. 26 (Australia Day) 2001, it’s expanded to each state in Australia, and across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand.
