Ever wanted to hitch a ride onboard your favourite band’s tour bus? Fantasised about starring in the next Almost Famous film? Well listen up, because Dallas Frasca is about to give you precisely that chance with what is guaranteed to be one of the musical highlights of the year.
The powerhouse Aussie frontwoman and rock and roll icon is throwing a world-first music festival set to take punters on the road this March. Taking place over three days, A Hitch To The Sticks Music Festival is a unique band-tour-meets-VIP-experience that gives audiences a glimpse at a touring musician’s lifestyle in a three day regional bus tour of hand-curated music events, gigs and festivals. With Frasca as your guide, passengers will navigate some of North-East Victoria’s hidden musical gems and undiscovered live music venues and events all from the comfort of your own rowdy, airconditioned tour bus.
For 50 lucky ticket holders, the adventure begins in Melbourne’s CBD on Friday where the Hitch To The Sticks bus will commence boarding. From there the tour heads North to six secret locations and four public events across North East Victoria until the musical safari touches back down in concrete town on Sunday.
Transporting passengers direct to the cream of the crop of Regional Victorian music and culture, Dallas will pack a massive lineup of local gigs, events, experiences and one BIG festival into the three day tour, to shine an unforgettable light on the immense musical talent hidden in the quiet corners of our land. Some of the exclusive experiences along the way will include a hedgemaze “artist hunt” where punters must follow the music to discover live local artists playing throughout the maze; a rock & roll slumber party in cabin style accomodation (limited VIP upgrades available); celebrity hitchhikers and an intimate live performance by a very special guest.

A HITCH TO THE STICKS FESTIVAL

16-18th March 2018
3 days | 10 events | 20+ acts | 710kms | 1 bus.

Australian rock legend Dallas Frasca is throwing a world-first music festival launching in North-East Victoria, 16-18 March, 2018. Unlike any music festival before it, A Hitch To The Sticks takes the audience on the road, with the festival playing out around it. It’s like a reverse band tour – instead of the audience coming to the gig, the music comes to them. Think of it like a VIP ticket, a backstage pass and your own personal festival to the power of ‘’OMG I’m on tour!’’.

Ticket holders will board the bus in Melbourne and travel north to 10 events over three whole days of music infused madness – with Dallas hosting the entire show on the bus with YOU for the whole weekend. Attendees will eat, snore, drink and party together over the three days, with the first night setting the tempo of the weekend with a rock-n-roll slumber party.

For punters who miss out on a ticket – fear not – you can meet the VIP bus-riders events that will be open to the public in Tatong Tavern (hosted by The Musical Garden), Down By The River Festival in Wangaratta and Moyhu Hotel (hosted by King Valley presents).

The program line up features celebrity hitch-hikers, hedge-maze artist hunts, rock n roll breakfast jams, campfire sessions, and of course intimate bus gigs which take place while the wheels on the bus go round and round. There are secret locations to be unveiled only to the bus ticket holders.

The music line up has been curated by Dallas, and features 85% North-East Victorian musicians and one very special international guest.
