Powderfinger may have called it a day, but Aussie rock legend Bernard Fanning is still dominating the music charts.

Bernard Fanning is set to headline A Day on the Green, a series of outdoor concerts held at selected wineries around Australia. His album Departures went straight to number one on the Aria Music Charts, with fans clearly embracing his new debut album.

It also looks like the former front man for Powderfinger is looking forward to performing at A Day on the Green, hoping to share a couple of wines with other acts The Cruel Sea, Sarah Blasko, Bob Evans and Band of Frequencies.

Iconic indie rock band The Cruel Sea don't perform together often, and with charismatic front man Tex Perkins, they're still going from strength to strength. With five ARIA awards to their credit, this is one performance you can't afford to miss.

ARIA award-winning Best Female Artist Sarah Blasko, returns home to Australia, coinciding with the release of the haunting new single 'All of Me'. Enchanting and undeniably brilliant, Sarah is set to thrill A Day on the Green audiences.

Bob Evans, the lovable alter-ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has been charming fans with his quirky solo projects for the past decade.

Band of Frequencies


Winners of the 2012 QMA Blues/Roots award for best new album, progressive surf roots rockers Band of Frequencies will also join the line up. They've played all over the world with the likes of Donovan Frankenreiter, John Butler, Angus Stone and Ash Grunwald.

A Day on the Green is like A Big Day Out for adults. You can pack a picnic basket with all your favourite food, however alcohol is not permitted. Make sure your glasses and cutlery are plastic, and bring cash as there are no EFTPOS facilities on the site. It's a bonus that kids under 12 are free, and if you're under 18, you must be accompanied by an adult.

Why not make a weekend of it, and book accommodation near the concert site.

A Day on The Green started with a show on Australia Day in Melbourne in 2001. Since then, it's grown to become established as one of Australia's most successful and respected outdoor concert events.

On a warm summer's night against the back-drop of Australia's beautiful vineyards, you can't get better than this during the Australian summer.
