From Düsseldorf to The Sup.

A transcendent and intangible experience that’s often referred to as the greatest music festival on the planet, the culture of the festival is a true testament to the strength of Melbourne’s own music scene. This year, German pioneers of electronic music as we know it Kraftwerk will be gracing the supernatural amphitheatre – and boy, we couldn’t be more stoked.

Heute angekündigt: formed in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider in Kling Klang, West Germany, they crafted a visionary and futuristic sound that would influence generations to come. Their discography – including Autobahn, Radio-Activity, Trans-Europe Express, The Man-Machine, and Computer World – are the reason that music sounds like it does today.

A self-funded and non-commercial event that’s been delighting festival goers since 1991 with a diverse selection of local and international acts. A festival like no other, it was the winner of the Licensee of the Year award at the APRA Music Awards of 2020.

Meredith Music Festival is held on the family property of one of the festival’s organisers, a farm complete with a Ferris wheel, an Ecoplex Cinema, the extremely popular Pink Flamingo Bar and famous nude running race, The Meredith Gift.

With only one stage, so no timetable clashes, Meredith Music Festival is known primarily for its great music and great culture – the reason that we love the Melbourne music scene so much in the first place.

It all goes down on December 8, 9 and 10. Try your luck at the ballot here. Viel Glück!
