Calling all cowboys: Boogie is back with a country weekender


From April 7 to 9, Boogie is taking over Our Friend's Farm for a rockabilly event like no other.

In just under ten weeks from now, Boogie will be back, just up the Hume in Tallarook. In its sweet 16th year, you can expect the same ol’ magic, shenanigans, masterpiece moments and colourful vibrations that has made it an essential part of the country’s party and festival scene.

Today, the festival announced a smashing lineup of bands and entertainment. Spend Easter weekend getting jiggy at Our Friend’s Farm on the lands of the Taungurung to the best of blues, Americana, country and roots.
