EVENT INFORMATION

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, Kitty and The HeartBeats and Brodie Rainbird, along with some stellar interstate artists including Andrew Swift, Darlinghurst, Taylor Moss and Tori Darke.

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, Festival 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 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.

The gates will open at 1:00pm. The entertainment begins at 2:30pm through to 10.40pm.

All services close at 11.30pm

Bring your favourite ground-rugs and folding chairs.

No alcohol or food will be allowed to be brought on site.

Mount Gnomon Farm is located at 886 Ironcliffe Road, Penguin TAS 7316

The Wolfe Brothers

The Wolfe Brothers are heading into 2022 on a high and full of optimism after almost 2 years away from doing what they love most about being musicians – playing their songs live for the fans. The popular duo has earned themselves a solid reputation for their catchy singles and dynamic live shows.

The Bad Dad Orchestra

Part soul rock juggernaut, part support group. The basic premise: a big band, big grooves, big boots… oh and it helps if you’re a dad to join.

Andrew Swift

Embraced whole-heartedly by Australia’s country music scene, Swift’s musical background speaks to an unexpectedly diverse journey. A shuffle played, genre defying, jukebox of wild assortment – Swift’s creative resume covers not only alt-country sub-genre staples such as Americana and bluegrass; but also power-pop, punk-rock and indie.

Darlinghurst

Darlinghurst is a new Melbourne based four-piece Australian Country-Pop group. Their debut self-titled album debuted at #1 on the ARIA Country Album chart. Darlinghurst have just been nominated for three awards at the 2022 50th Anniversary Golden Guitar Awards – New Talent of the Year, Capital News Group or Duo of the Year and Contemporary Country Album of the Year. 

Taylor Moss

She’s a 25 year old country pop artist, born in Ulladulla NSW, lives in Sunshine Coast QLD. She made her first recording at age 15 in AC/DC`s Sydney studio. Taylor didn’t so much choose the Country Genre as it chose her, a guitar gifted from her late uncle guided her towards songs with stories performed by musicians with heart.

 

Tori Darke

Singer/songwriter Tori Darke Is the Full Package. This Golden Guitar ‘Female Artist of the Year’ finalist, Sports Model and all round down to earth Aussie chick has shared her music not only Australia wide but has toured as far as the Middle East several times playing for our Aussie troops. Tori has spent the last 12 months writing and developing new music that she is excited to share this year. With the release of Tori’s first single of 2021 set to drop early September. 

Brodie Rainbird

Professional musician and guitarist for the successful Australian country music band The Wolfe Brothers, Brodie Rainbird now debuted his solo artist side, stepping out from country rock and into rocking the world of acoustic pop with original songs and an ultimately captivating original sound.

Kitty & The HeartBeats

Prepare yourself for the overwhelming vintage beat power of Kitty & The HeartBeats. Hailing from the NW of Tasmania, this kitten & three cats have become crowd favourites with their vintage style and fun stage show. Kitty Martini has become well known for her rock and roll and rockabilly tunes, gracing stages across the country and supporting some of Australia’s biggest names, while The HeartBeats have become well known across Tasmania for their authentic vintage sound & sing for your supper harmonies. Excited to share some original tunes and some old favourites, Kitty & The Heartbeats are guaranteed to get those toes tapping, rocking and rolling!
