Music returns to Hanging Rock

Popular Stories

MUSIC is set to return to Hanging Rock this month with a weekend of concerts planned from November 25 to 27.

Opening the concert season are Nick Cave and Warren Ellis who will perform to a limited seating audience on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 of November – both events quickly sold out.

The Cave and Ellis shows comes off the back of the duo’s acclaimed 2021 album Carnage.

While both are long-term members of The Bad Seeds, they have composed and recorded scores and worked on many other projects together. This is the first time the pair have toured Australia as a duo.

The show is part of Always Live, a new state-wide celebration of contemporary live music supported by the Victorian Government through Visit Victoria.

Always Live brings to life a long-held dream of late Australian music icon Michael Gudinski, who owned a holiday house in Macedon, and had staged concerts at Hanging Rock for many years.

Then on Sunday November 27, commencing at 2pm, the Mushroom Group, the Victorian Government, and Bad Apples Music will present First and Forever – a new, day-long festival celebrating First Nations inspired music.

Artists from multiple nations will converge on Victoria’s most spectacular stage, The Gathering Place, Hanging Rock for this landmark music event.

Gates to the picnic-style event will open from 1pm, with music running into the night. Artists will showcase a set on one main stage, located at the foot of Hanging Rock.

Over the years Hanging Rock has provided a spectacular backdrop to a range of performers including Rod Stewart, Foo Fighters, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen and Cold Chisel – to mention but a few.
