Melbournians – have any plans for the March Long Weekend next year? You do now. In yet another addition to the million reasons Melbourne is the world’s most livable city, a new concert event is set to come alive next year at the Royal Botanical Gardens. Organised by the team behind A Day On The Green, you know you’re in good hands experiencing incredible live entertainment in a beautiful environment.

Taking place on the 10th, 11th, and 12th of March 2017, A Weekend In The Gardens has something for everyone. Headlining the first night will be the one and only John Farnham to make a noise and make it clear that the Royal Botanical Gardens are the place to be. As if that isn’t enough, he’ll be supported by legends Daryl Braithwaite and Ross Wilson. If these acts aren’t to your liking, you darn youngsters, you’re sure to be keen on day two, headlined by Boy & Bear with support from San Cisco and Amy Shark. And finally – surely something for everyone – Icehouse will be raging on with their 40th-anniversary celebrations, supported by James Reyne and Clare Bowditch.

To keep you going over the weekend will be a major feature, “The Eatery,” which has all the food and drink you can get your hands on as well as a place to chill out. There’ll be offerings from Ladro, Burn City Smokers, The Royale Brothers, and Pommery Champagne & Oyster Bar, just to name a delicious few. And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy pop out back to Jardin Tan restaurant for a VIP Canapes package.

We mentioned it took place over the long weekend, yeah? The event organisers put it best that “Monday, March 13 is a Public Holiday in Melbourne – hello recovery day!” You bloody ripper.

Each night runs from 4:00pm to 11:00pm, with reserved seats available for Friday and Sunday (remember to BYO deck chairs and picnic rugs!) and general admission all weekend. Check out the FAQ for all the nitty gritty.
