And We Mean Everything
You've gotta love summer in Victoria, especially when it comes with music festivals, warm community spirit in a gorgeous town, markets, and a stunning seaside location that beats, hands down, anything I've seen in those glossy tourist brochures. Try this sunset for starters.

The Anglesea Music Festival, held on the ideal date of Saturday 23 January (the Saturday of the Australia Day long weekend), combines all this - and more, including some pretty colourful characters.

The line-up is a summer knockout. Some of my favourites include: Chris Wilson for some get down and boogie blues; 19 Twenty for a high-energy mix of blues, folk and rock (stay still if you can - I can't); Andrea Marr Band for some soulful, sassy blues; and Dale Ryder (from Boom Crash Opera) teaming up with Jason Singh (from Taxi Ride).

Get dancing to Jimi Hocking, Geoff Acheson, Wayne Jury, Kelly Auty, and Cleveland Blues (pictured top right), a long-time favourite dynamic duo from the Sunshine Coast, whose rocked up dirty blues remind you how good it is to alive. Again, stay still if you can, especially with a pumped up Cleveland on guitar and vocals one of Australia's best female drummers, Bam Bam, on the drums.

And that's just for starters. As a self-confessed music fest junkie, in my view, between the live music line-up and the Great Ocean Road location, this one's got summer music all wrapped up - especially at the almost ridiculously low-price of $90. {break]You'd be hard pressed to see even one of these bands for under $20 - and you'd be just nuts not to take up the Early Bird Offer (of $74.60) before December 31st. Here are all the ticketing options.

See you there - and don't forget your bathers. Oh yeah, and maybe a surfboard or boogie board. And your sunscreen. And a carefree summer-fun-in-the-sun vibe. See you there! On the dance floor.
