‘The Long Weekender’ live stream announced featuring Alex Lahey, Alice Skye, Courtney Barnett + more
Hallmarking its continuing support for the live arts sector, the Victorian Government this afternoon announced ‘The Long Weekender’ and a $360 000 injection of additional funding towards artists and festival organisers via the delivery of six hours of Victorian music from 12pm on the 14th of June.
The stream consists of curated sets from Victorian music festivals including Falls Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Yirramboi Festival, SummerSalt, Brunswick Music Festival, Meredith Music Festival, Golden Plains, Share The Spirit and A Day On The Green. The lineup is massive, including fan favourites Courtney Barnett, Alice Skye, Alex Lahey and Sleep D.
It’s going to be hosted by Myf Wahurst. On its curation, she stated, “I’m so chuffed to be involved in the Long Weekender as it’s the festival we can all enjoy from home, at a time when we literally can’t go to a festival, Not only is this the perfect way to support our much loved local musicians when they need it the most, Victorians will get a necessary dose of live music recorded at some of the biggest and best festivals in this state. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the immense talent we have here in Victoria AND get primed for a time when live music will once again be accessible to all, artist and fans alike.”
It’s all going down next Monday on the 14th of June. All event info is HERE as well as a spot to RSVP.
