Featuring Boy & Bear, San Cisco & Amy Shark Saturday 11 March 2017

Melbourne’s iconic Royal Botanic Gardens is set to come alive with music with the announcement today of a brand new concert event beginning next year - A WEEKEND In The Gardens.

Developed by the team behind the highly successful A Day On The Green winery series, A WEEKEND In The Gardens’ inaugural event will take place on the March Long Weekend with three amazing concerts on Friday March 10, Saturday March 11 and Sunday March 12.

A WEEKEND In The Gardens is all about bringing music lovers to the Gardens to enjoy the beautiful environment on a summer’s night while experiencing great live entertainment.

On Saturday March 11 indie-rock faves Boy & Bear will head up a must-see line-up with San Cisco and Amy Shark. Currently on a huge tour around Australia, Boy & Bear continue to thrill their huge fan base with unforgettable live shows. Under the stars in the Botanic Garden is a venue match made in heaven!

If their irresistible new single SloMo is any indication, San Cisco will be providing more than a little bit of perfect pop in their set, while Amy Shark’s Adore signals her arrival as an amazing singer/songwriter on the rise.

That’s your live music sorted, but here’s the other good bit!

A WEEKEND In the Gardens is far more than just the music. To enjoy this special location, a major feature of the event will be “The Eatery” – an area adjoining the site with a variety of high quality food and drink stalls for chilling out in a relaxed and

vibrant space. Foodies will be tantalised with offerings from Ladro, Burn City Smokers, The Royale Brothers and Pommery Champagne & Oyster Bar to name a few!

A WEEKEND In The Gardens is also pleased to have the Gardens’ acclaimed Jardin Tan restaurant join this special event. Located immediately behind the concert area, Jardin Tan will offer a VIP Canapes package.

Roundhouse Entertainment Director Michael Newton said: “Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens is world renowned and we are thrilled to produce what we hope will be some very special concerts for the inaugural event in March and beyond.”

Robin Penty, Executive Director Public Engagement and Business Development at Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria says: “A WEEKEND In The Gardens is a wonderful new event for our Melbourne Gardens. This concert series is a perfect fit for our new programming focus, welcoming new and diverse audiences to our site at the heart of the city.”

With its central location, A WEEKEND In The Gardens is sure to be a warmly welcomed by music lovers and to become a highly-anticipated event on the Melbourne concert calendar.
