2014 Motor City Music Festival – Geelong

Geelong is going to be the place to be this March long weekend when the Motor City Music Festival comes to the Geelong Showgrounds for three jam packed days of family fun and great music.


We’ve got all the greatest hits:
• THE MUSIC – you’ll know the words to every song at our main stage where you’ll see Daryl Braithwaite, Rick Price, Boom Crash Opera and The Chantoozies and many more; plus we’ve four other stages
• THE RIDES – try not to “chunder “on 80s-favourite THE ZIPPER, ram your mates on the DODGEMS, and take a spin on the CHA CHA – and more
• THE FOOD – of course we’ve got fairy floss, snow cones and twisty taters just like the show, but you can also treat your tastebuds with tacos, pork sliders, wok-fried noodles, calamari and more
• THE DRINKS – icy cold beers on tap from Geelong’s Little Creatures brewery, as well as cider, local wines and spirits to quench that hard earned thirst
• THE KIDS ZONE – stage shows and roving performers, workshops, face painting, a colouring competition and craft activities for the rug rats
• THE SPECTACULAR FIREWORKS FINALE – a massive fireworks display with a 200-shell finale, the biggest ever seen at the showgrounds!
What a way to spend Labour Day Sunday with Monday off to recover! The action runs from 10.30am and culminates with the 15-minute fireworks finale at 8.45pm.
Bring your deck chairs. Bring your mates, your neighbours, your friends and relatives. You’ll be dancing to some of Australia’s best musical talent, a taco in one hand, a refreshing drink in the other. Come share some good times and great tunes with your kids.
The centre of the festival action is on the lawns of Southern Cross Stage, complete with picnic tables and gum trees for shade, flanked by food vans and designated bar areas for the adults. Bring your picnic rugs and chairs and relax!
We’ve also got four undercover stages in showground pavilions where you can check out the legends of Queenscliff’s legendary Blues Train for The Blues Train’s 20th Birthday celebrations. These include the cosy Showmans Bar and a beer hall in the Motor Pavillion. Whatever the weather and whatever your musical taste, this fantastic event has got it covered.


Festival Director Hugo T Armstrong said, “Sunday is Family Day at Motor City Music Festival. You’ve rocked out all weekend, why not bring the kids on Sunday and have some good old-fashioned fun!”
