One Electric Day expands nationally in 2019 | John Farnham headlines across VIC, TAS, SA, NSW & QLD

Tickets on sale 10am AEST Thursday 6th June 2019

As it heads into its seventh year, one of Melbourne’s favourite one-day festivals, ONE ELECTRIC DAY, is going national. In an exciting coup for music-lovers, the all-Aussie rock festival, which has sold out annually since its inception, will be also heading to Launceston, Sydney, Brisbane and the Barossa in November and December this year. Headlined by the incomparable John Farnham with special guests James Reyne, Jon Stevens, Vanessa Amorosi, The Black Sorrows, and a special reformation by Southern Sons, these are shows that no music fan should miss.

ONE ELECTRIC DAY launched in Melbourne in 2013 and was a sell-out. In recent years, tickets have been snapped up within minutes of the show going on sale, making it one of the most highly anticipated music events on the Victorian calendar. Each year the 10,000-plus crowd rock out to some of the biggest names on the touring circuit today. Organised by the promoters who bring Australian audiences the revered Red Hot Summer Tour annually, ONE ELECTRIC DAY always bills the best of the best.

Promoter Duane McDonald says he is excited to expand ONE ELECTRIC DAY nationally in 2019. “There is always such a buzz around the Melbourne show,” he says. “It sells out very quickly in Werribee, and every year we get requests from interstate on when we will be bringing ONE ELECTRIC DAY further afield. This is such an exciting opportunity for us to share some of Australia’s best talent with audiences around Australia, and we are stoked to be launching the national ONE ELECTRIC DAY series with John Farnham. We expect audiences in Launceston, Sydney, Brisbane and the Barossa will embrace ONE ELECTRIC DAY the same way Victorian music-lovers have and help us make this an annual event in their towns! Let’s get rockin’.”

Considered one of the best male vocalists of all time – by both fans and fellow musicians – John Farnham has had an incredibly versatile career. His 1986 album Whispering Jack was the first record to sell over a million copies in Australia and its chart topping single You’re The Voice cemented the honey toned solo artist as ‘the voice’ of the country. Over the next several years he released hit after hit, including Pressure Down, Reasons, A Touch of Paradise, Age of Reason, Two Strong Hearts, Angels, Talk of The Town, Chain Reaction, Burn for You, Have A Little Faith (In Us) and That’s Freedom to name a few.

James Reyne has been treading the boards in the rock halls of Australian music for decades. From his time fronting the legendary Australian Crawl through to his successful solo career, James’ music is part of Australian history. As a prolific songwriter and strong vocalist, it’s no surprise that James has won accolade after accolade for his contribution to music. When Australian Crawl split in the mid-1980s, James embarked on a successful solo career. James Reye stands alone within an elite cluster of exclusive Australian performers. James will be performing Sydney, Werribee and Brisbane.

For lovers of great music, a concert experience with Jon Stevens is up there with the very best. From his Noiseworks days – and hits such as Welcome To The World, No Lies, Touch and Hot Chilli Woman – to fronting The Dead Daisies and INXS, he has made an indelible impact with his amazing vocals. Jon also has an incredible solo catalogue, his live shows are dynamic, high energy and will keep audiences on their feet. Jon’s current live show is packed full of hits and we are thrilled to have him return

Vanessa Amorosi’s recent return to the Australian stage has been embraced by audiences. Her debut album The Power (2000) demonstrated Vanessa was a force to reckon with – it notched up six nominations at the ARIA awards and saw her sing at the Sydney Olympics. It was the breakthrough Top 10 hit Absolutely Everybody that made her a household name, it stayed in the charts for six months, went certified double platinum and charted in Europe. In recent times Vanessa has returned to Australia with brand new music and is ready to unleash a full album of extraordinary material in late 2019. She has sold over two million records and is a force to be reckoned with!

The Black Sorrows are another legendary band on the 2019 line-up. With unforgettable hits such as Harley & Rose, Dear Children, The Chosen Ones, Never Let Me Go and Chained to the Wheel to Hold On To Me and New Craze, The Black Sorrows have sold more than a million albums worldwide, toured Europe (to sell-out shows) and won an ARIA for Best Band. Joe and his fantastic band will have audiences on their feet as he performs the hits that defined a generation. The Black Sorrows perform in Launceton and Barossa.

Reforming after 22-years, Southern Sons are back together for ONE ELECTRIC DAY. In the 1990s their ARIA-nominated debut self-titled album hit #5 on the charts and spawned smash hits Heart In Danger, Hold Me In Your Arms, Always & Forever and Waiting For That Train. They were one of the most loved bands of the 90s and all four members – Jack Jones, Virgil Donati, Geoff Cain and Peter Bowman – have banded back together for these special events.

Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers @ Mornington Racecourse, MORNINGTON VIC
Dec 15 @ 12:30 pm – 7:15 pm
Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers @ Mornington Racecourse, MORNINGTON VIC

Featuring John Farnham with Jon Stevens, Daryl Braithwaite, Vanessa Amorosi, John Williamson, The Black Sorrows with Vika & Linda, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Tim Wheatley and Little Georgia

Banding together this festive season, John Farnham will lead a cast of Aussie entertainers to raise important funds for Rural Aid with the Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal for Our Aussie Farmers. Joining John for this all-star line-up is a list of Aussie music royalty including Jon Stevens, Daryl Braithwaite, Vanessa Amorosi, John Williamson, The Black Sorrows with Vika & Linda, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Tim Wheatley and Little Georgia. What a Christmas get together!

For John Farnham, being part of the Hay Mate concert in Mornington on December 15 – an event that has been made possible by the generosity of partners Woolworths and the Nine Network – was an important thing to do. “Farmers are the backbone of this country,” he says. “I understand what they are going through. They are doing it tough through this drought. Not only do we want to help out, we want to show them that they have our support.”

All profits raised from the massive Sunday event will go to Rural Aid’s Buy A Bale campaign. Rural Aid is one of the leading rural charities in Australia and have been championing the cause to farmers doing it tough. The Buy A Bale program supports farmers and rural communities throughout Australia, delivering hay and other essential items for those who have no feed left for their livestock. One of the key supporters of the Hay Mate event, Woolworths, has a long and strong history of supporting Australians in need, particularly in times of drought and disaster. Their continued support with Hay Mate will keep championing the cause for funds for drought-affected families.

Rural Aid chief executive officer Charles Adler said everyone behind the Hay Mate concerts were to be commended for coming together to put on the event. “They have recognised a need and are committed to supporting our farmers and families,” he says. “I cannot say enough in terms of their generosity to this cause. The Hay Mate Buy A Bale program has so far distributed over $3-million worth of fodder to farmers around Australia. But, with the worsening drought and the need for a lot more, the commitment has been made to distribute more through the funds that will be raised at the Hay Mate concert.”

The Nine Network will be broadcasting the Hay Mate concert from 8pm on December 15 on Channel 9, continuing its ongoing support of Australian farmers. Head of content, production and development Adrian Swift says the network is committed to helping farmers who are suffering through the worst drought in 100 years. “The job isn’t over yet,” he says. “Working with Rural Aid and Aussie music legends like John Farnham represents another massive opportunity to show support and raise more funds,” he says. “Hay Mate will be a major television event featuring some of Australia’s biggest musical acts.”

Organiser Glenn Wheatley, who is one of the driving forces behind the Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers says the success of the event is about everyone coming together for a united cause. “There are times when we need to stand together to support those in need, and our farmers are doing it tough,” he says. “I can’t thank the performers enough for agreeing to participate. Their support to this cause is enormous. It is a credit to them, and I do hope Australians get behind this bush Christmas appeal to support our farmers. December is the perfect time to get together – celebrate Christmas early and help out our fellow mates – come and join us for this very special event in Mornington on December 15.”

Tickets for Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers go on sale at 9am AEST on Friday 1st November 2019. To donate to the appeal, visit the Hay Mate website.
