A Day on the Green is back at Sirromet Winery on Sunday 9 November 2014, and this year looks like being bigger and better than ever.

To celebrate his 30th anniversary as a solo artist, Jimmy Barnes has announced a special a day on the green national tour. He will be working his way around the country at various A Day on the Green venues, and is the headline act at the Sirromet Winery on 9 November. Besides Jimmy Barnes, the stella line up includes;

The Living End
Ian Moss
Mahalia Barnes and the Soulmates
Nick Barker

A Day on the Green is not just about the music, it's about the whole experience. The atmosphere, the scenery, and oh...the wine. Wine, wine and more wine. A Day on the Green is a music festival for adults and families. Set in the beautiful surrounds of Sirromet Winery, with the picture perfect vineyard as a backdrop, enjoy a relatively sophisticated day out. Although, be warned, you might not end up looking so sophisticated after a day of dancing and fun.



Those who have been to A Day on the Green before, and those veterans who go every year, know that this is always an awesome day out. And in this, its 14th year, Jimmy Barnes is really excited to be on board too.

"This year is so important for me, so I wanted this tour handled by people who love music and who care about the tour and a day on the green do it the best," Jimmy says. "They run it really well and they know how to look after an audience. I've done a lot of them over the years and Cold Chisel has done them too. It's such a great way to get to play to the public.

"Also I'm so excited about working with The Living End because they're just so bloody good. They're so ferocious as a band. They're friends, they're not really a support act it's a bill to make it the best show. So I'm going to have to work really hard, and I love that. We're going to have a great time."

Tickets are available as general admission $106 or reserved seating (up to $183), and upgrades are available with food and wine packages, or marquees. Go to Ticketmaster to purchase your tickets.
