Turn Up The Dial
January 14, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 11:30 pm
We’re super excited to announce that a new annual festival TURN UP THE DIAL is coming to Mount Gnomon Farm. To launch the festival in style we have engaged one of Tasmania’s finest exports, and arguably the most successful country rock duo that Australia has produced, THE WOLFE BROTHERS. The multi-award winning group will headline an amazing and diverse line up of artists to entertain the crowd all afternoon and into the night.
The Wolfe Brothers will be joined by local artists The Bad Dad Orchestra and Kitty and The HeartBeats, along with some stellar interstate artists including Andrew Swift, Darlinghurst, Taylor Moss, Tori Darke and Brodie Rainbird.
It’s going to be a fun afternoon and evening of great music, games and delicious paddock to plate food and beverages. We will be serving our orchard cider, launching our new rhubarb champagne, Rhubarb Champenguin, along with some great local wine, craft beers and spirits and cocktails. There will be local makers and growers having stalls in our barn, an opportunity to wander our garden and sunflower fields or chill out and have a picnic under an apple tree in our cider orchard.
A return bus fare provided from Burnie, Penguin, Ulverstone and Devonport will allow you to relax and take the pressure off driving. Excitingly for the first time we’re providing an option to camp at the farm or book a motorhome or caravan site. On Sunday there will be a big recovery Sunday breakfast featuring farm produce and our home-made free-range bacon and sausages.
The launch of this festival although many years in the making has been fast tracked after the repeated cancellation of so many festival and events. The loss of events such as the Tulip Festival, Fesitvale and The Unconformity, has not only hurt those in the event sector it’s taken away so many opportunities for us to come together as a community and celebrate. We want to literally turn up the dial after such a period of non-events. We would love you to venture to our region to turn up at the Dial and launch our festival in style!
Set against the beautiful back drop of the Dial Range and just minutes out of Penguin, the TURN UP THE DIAL FESTIVAL promises to be a farm festival with a difference.
Originally set for the 29th of January this event has been postponed due to covid implications until January 14 2023. We will use this time to add new elements to this event to make it bigger and better.
The gates will open at 1:00pm. The entertainment begins at 2:30 pm through to 10.40 pm.
All services close at 11.30pm
