You’re kidding?!?!

Across two nights on Friday May 14 and Saturday May 15, the likes of Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Blake Scott, MOD CON, Floodlights and more will perform at the Charlton Hotel for the final instalment of OK Motels 2021 – a live music series in regional Victoria.

As part of the event, OK Motels asked respected Melbourne artist, designer and creative Callum Preston to fashion a replica of The Tote for a purpose-built mini golf course punters will be able to play at the event.

This is no drill, music lovers heading along to OK Motels will not only be able to dabble in a game of mini golf (a guilty pleasure for many of us), but on hole two, they will have to navigate The Tote in all its glorious obstacle form.


Those down for the challenge will have steer their shot past VB cans and through The Tote’s front door before carrying on their way to get the ball in the hole.

The Charlton shows will be the third and final instalment of OK Motels’ 2021 series, one which has already seen Tropical Fuck Storm, Smarts, Floodlights and more perform at the Charlton Hotel over the April 30, May 1 weekend.

Prior to that, the likes of The Murlocs, Parsnip, The Living Eyes and Green Blanket came to Geelong’s Corio Bay Motel on Saturday April 17.

Check out the madness below.
