Prepare for iconic indie rock anthems in the great outdoors when The Living End, Spiderbait, Veruca Salt, The Lemonheads, Tumbleweed and The Fauves combine for an almighty A Day On The Green national tour next February/March.

It’s a bill bursting with bands who were part of the alternative heyday of the 1990s, a period that has left a remarkable legacy on Australian music fans and continues to be held with muchos affection.

Between them, these six bands have notched up eight ARIA Awards, received more than 30 ARIA Award nominations, had 12 Top 10 albums and 19 Top 40 hit singles. They’ve played just about every major music festival in the world and worked with a wide range of collaborators.

In the live arena their reputations were made through performances marked by energy, passion and verve – qualities that will once again be on display during this tour.

If the resounding success of similar alt-jaunts with Hoodoo Gurus, Sunnyboys, Violent Femmes, Died Pretty and Ratcat in 2015 and last year’s You Am I, Something For Kate, Spiderbait, Jebediah and The Meanies run are anything to go by, this will be a tour to savour.

The Living End’s Chris Cheney said.

Check it out folks, grab the esky and your picnic blanket because we are excited to announce we’re playing a day on the green! After spending a huge chunk of this past year touring internationally we can’t wait to play shows in our own beautiful Australian backyard. As anyone who’s ever gone to a day on the green knows, they’re always unique gigs but this one is extra special. The line-up is killer! Hot damn! Get on it!

While Spiderbait’s Kram adds;

We’re all so stoked be playing a day on the green again next year all around Australia. The last time we did these shows the response was amazing and the gigs were so awesome. Thanks to the fans that came out and made these events so brilliant for us. We hope to see you all again with our mates, such a great line-up and we can’t wait for it all to start!

This Summer season marks the 17th year of A Day On The Green, which started in January 2001. After more than 425 shows and three million happy patrons, the experience of good food, good wine and great music is firmly established as one of Australia’s most popular concert events.

A Day On The Green is a fully licensed event. Strictly no BYO alcohol. Food will be available on site or BYO picnic. Camping chairs and picnic rugs are recommended. For all transport, accommodation and event information, go to www.adayonthegreen.com.au
