Escape the big smoke to the Swan Valley, and come un-wine-d at a get-together in the grapevines with food, wine, beer, and Hot Dub performing live, alongside a huge personally curated lineup of Australian bands and DJs. We chianti think of a better way to spend a sunshine-soaked, late summers’ day! Hot Dub Wine Machine winds into W.A. as part of a national tour throughout the country’s best wineries this March, off the back of the inaugural sold-out event last year, where over 6,000 Adelaide wine and music lovers rosé to the occasion of welcoming Hot Dub Time Machine to a custom-built stage flanked by grapevines in the McLaren Vale. “The first Wine Machine at McLaren Vale was a fantastic vibe,” says Hot Dub’s Loud, “joyous, wild and really good fun”. Houghton Winery in the stunning Swan Valley is home for Perth Wine Machiners. Does dancing on the banks of the Swan River, surrounded by lush gardens – stately pines, verdant vines, and Jacaranda trees – sound OK to you? And only a brief, 30-minute drive from the CBD (but we’ll leave that to the chauffers of the classic Jag you’re rolling into the Valley in, like the suave hellcat you are!). Hot Dub Wine Machine is surely set to join the region’s signature events Spring In the Valley, Welcome to the Valley, and Electric Vines as an annual calendar highlight for music, wine and food lovers in W.A. Hot Dub Wine Machine is a civilised, boutique offering – a live concert experience that retains the intimacy of Hot Dub’s theatre shows, whilst taking on scale of a larger outdoor event. Be entertained by a line-up featuring the cream of Australia’s music scene, handpicked by Hot Dub (*full announcement of artists forthcoming very shortly*). Quaff your way through top-notch local vino that will dazzle the palette, as well as craft beer and cocktails. Also on offer – a decadent selection of gourmet chow – be swept up in a frenzy of flavours featuring local produce from the Swan Valley region.
