There is little doubt that One Electric Day is one of Melbourne’s favourite one-day music festivals. Every year, the festival which proudly touts an all-Australian line-up, sells out in minutes and has become a highlight on the entertainment calendar for music-lovers. While COVID-19 meant there was no event in 2020, the festival triumphantly returns for its eighth year in 2021 sporting an impressive line-up headlined by Jimmy Barnes, with The Living End, Jon Stevens, The Black Sorrows, Killing Heidi and Chocolate Starfish. It is fitting that Jimmy Barnes headlines the coveted event as it returns, considering that he was on its first ever bill back in 2013 and continues to be a strong supporter of One Electric Day.
For organiser Duane McDonald, announcing the return of One Electric Day is an exciting prospect. “Audiences have always been so supportive of One Electric Day,” he says. “It has become a really special event where we see many fans return year after year, it is like catching up with friends and family. After the curveball that COVID-19 threw at us, we are looking forward to catching up with those friends and family this year for a very overdue celebration of great Australian music. One Electric Day 2021 will create some great memories for us all.”
