Making music and memories on one weekend in March

Melbourne Gardens will come alive with music on one weekend in March next year, memories will be made – and some revisited – with the inaugural A WEEKEND In The Gardens event.

Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria is delighted to welcome this wonderful new music event, which will cap another season of outdoor entertainment at Melbourne Gardens.

Staged over three days, A WEEKEND In The Gardens has been developed by the team behind the ‘A Day On The Green’ winery series, and will bring three concerts to the Observatory Precinct on Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 March.

Baby-boomers can take a trip down memory lane and revisit their youth on the Friday night with the opening concert headlined by John Farnham. He’ll be joined by two of Melbourne’s favourite sons, Daryl Braithwaite and Ross Wilson.

On Saturday night, Boy & Bear, San Cisco and Amy Shark will be the line-up for a younger audience. On what promises to be a wonderful weekend of music, Icehouse will headline the final concert on Sunday night with supporting acts James Reyne and Clare Bowditch.

More than just a music event, concert-goers can dine out in the foodie zone “The Eatery” showcasing Melbourne’s high quality food and drink offerings. For those looking for a premium evening Jardin Tan will offer the ‘Jardin Tan Experience’ including platinum concert seating, cocktail on arrival, substantial canapes, private bar and deluxe amenities.

The concert series is being developed by Roundhouse Entertainment, who are working together with Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria to deliver new experiences for our existing patrons and attract new audiences to our iconic Melbourne Gardens.

Full details about A WEEKEND In The Gardens are available on the official website

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 9 December and are available online from Ticketmaster or by calling 136 100.
