Old Mate’s Block Party might be the only music festival in the world that does oranges at half time.” – Daily Telegraph
A festival started to unite music fans and showcase a collection of local and interstate talent hand picked by The Lockhearts. A festival to get people involved in the local music scene and help them discover their new favourite band.
With newer up and coming bands like Pan Pacific Grand Prix and Johnny Hunter playing along side newly added veterans Neon Heart (playing their reunion show) there truly will be something for everyone.
The festival has successfully sold out before doors two years in a row and the third installment is looking no different with first release tickets well and truly sold out.
Old Mate’s Block Party will be the start of a massive year for The Lockhearts who are slated to release their debut album this coming April. Their first single ‘Ride Home’ was released late in 2017 to rave reviews.
“Ride Home marks a ragged forerunner to one whopping album from The Lockhearts.” – Hhhhappy
The Lockhearts are also very proud to welcome aboard Monkey Shoulder Whiskey as festival sponsors and stoked to announce that thanks to co-sponsors Young Henrys, there will also be $6 YH tinnies before 6pm!
And as always, a huge thanks to Lachlan Bruce and the team at Our Friends Electric for making this possible.
Old Mates Block Party is proud to be an LGBTQIA Safe Space and welcomes all Men, Women and Non-binary friends.
