Event:
Who are the legends? Iconic Australians Vika & Linda Bull, Daryl Braithwaite, Ross Wilson and Mark Seymour, and their bands. Where's the lawn? Werribee Park, with the magnificent Werribee Mansion as a backdrop.

These Australian music legends are set to entertain from 12.30pm, though gates open at 10.30. It's worth getting there early to secure a good possie and check out the mansion and surrounding gardens. Check out these handy FAQs so you can plan for the best possible day.

Some of you will be very familiar with the artists, particularly X-gens. Others won't necessarily, particularly Y-gens. Either way, I recommend making sure the speakers are on and sitting on the home page for a bit. Y-gens will no doubt recognise some of the songs that helped define Australian music over the years, while X-gens will take a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Not only that, these artists' music, like fine wine, has matured with age. They rock! I saw Daryl Braithwaite not so long ago and was blown away. As for Mark Seymour (former Hunters and Collectors lead), whom I've been blessed enough to see a few times, his Holy Grail and Throw Your Arms Around Me have me enraptured. As for Ross Wilson's Eagle Rock (number one on the home page), it's a timeless classic that gets any party started.
