This one isn't for you if you tend to lose track of space and time at a festival and end up on the back of a lorry because you've lost all your mates and can't remember where you live. And consider that to be the time of your life.
Stanthorpe Rocks certainly rocks, but more in a 70s-bands-and-a-nice-glass-of-red type of way than two-litres-of-cider-and-regrettable-decisions type of way.
Stanthorpe Rocks knows how to enjoy the finer things in life. It takes place at a wine estate which says it all really; you can reserve seats in front of the stage - so no back ache - there's an international food market, and even a fully seated restaurant for those who couldn't possible stomach a greasy burger from a van.
It's a pretty classy affair, featuring some rock n' roll bands that you'll know and some that you won't, as between the headliners there are acoustic performances from local acts.
Day 2 is Rock n Recovery which will incorporate a market day showcasing locals wares and budding young artists entertaining the crowd. Buy a Reserved Seat or Corporate ticket and receive FREE admission to Rock n Recovery on Sunday.
We never thought we'd say this, but why not enjoy the festival from the sky?
Helicopter rides over the Ballandean Estate are available for up to 3 people at a time - one way to make it an unforgettable festival but one you'll actually remember.
How do I get there?
- From Stanthorpe join the New England Highway and continue for approx 17 kms until you arrive in the little town of Ballandean.
