Summer is good for heaps of reasons: daylight savings, Christmas, the Myer Windows, beer gardens and music festivals. Often held in quaint country locales that allows you get out of Dodge while tapping those toes, next weekend’s Queenscliff Music Festival is a good introduction to the summer sound circuit.

In preparation for the ‘camping-in-a-field-with-a-thousand-people-and-one-loo’ experience at Meredith and Golden Plains, Queenscliff’s modest sized camping site overlooks Port Phillip Bay, has full amenities and is so close to town you can explore the architecture the place is renowned for. There’s also a some pretty decent fish and chippies and op-shops plus a steam train and a ferry.

This year’s line up is a mixed bag of mega music fruit, there’s Eskimo Joe, The Triffids and Friends, The Cruel Sea, The Herd, Kimbra, The Bamboos and a bunch more. All up there’s over 100 acts across five stages and three days, with markets and stuff too.

Another important figure. Three pubs, where you’ll avoid those festival booze prices. Good times,

Queenscliff Music Festival runs from Nov 25 – 27. For full listings and tickets visit: www.qmf.net.au
