music festival dates & first band announced…



By The Meadow, the much loved boutique music festival, is back for its fifth year in 2018. Set to take place on 6th to 8th of April it returns to the lush farmland hamlet of Bambra (Victoria’s enchanting Otway Surf Coast region), with the eleven piece Melbourne soul juggernaut Billy Davis And The Good Lords as the first act to be announced.

Billy Davis And The Good Lords mark the beginning of a carefully curated lineup set to be announced in January. The complete bill will soundtrack an immersive three day journey through the current Australian music scene.

But that’s not the only treat the Festival Directors have in store – as a goodwill gesture to those punters who have previously been through the By The Meadow  gates, presale tickets exclusive to them will be offered via an access code and link direct to their email inboxes on Wednesday 13 December. This special offer allows these return customers to purchase a full festival ticket for just $105 each. Welcome back frequent flyers!

There are only 200 presale tickets available.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on January 11 and are offered as a one night only experience or the complete three day pass limited to a total of 900 tickets.

Grab your mates, grab your tents and escape the rat race to the picturesque Otway Hinterlands (a scenic 90 minute drive from Melbourne, 45 minutes from Geelong, and just over an hour from Ballarat).

Stay tuned for more information in the new year.
