This Isolated Victorian Country Motel Is Holding Another Massive Gig In April

Early last year we got word of a great gig happening in country Victoria at the Charlton Motel, well, the good news is that round two is not far away.

If you’re anything like me, you love heading out and checking out the best parts of Victoria. While we’ve been exploring the best that the regions have to offer, Kate Berry has been travelling around the state visiting classic motels that still exist off the side of the highway and has been telling their stories over at OK Motels—and now, she’s putting on the gig of all gigs again at the Charlton Motel.

OK Motels will be running Charlton Motel 2 on April 6, and will feature the likes of:

  • Cash Savage & The Last Drinks
  • Laura Jean
  • Harmony
  • Terry
  • The Living Eyes
  • Palm Springs
  • DJ Eric Strykert
  • DJ Lucky Star

Check out the below video for a feel of what you're going to get, and what you missed last time.

Alongside the tunes there will be 70s cocktails, "shitloads of curly parsley", and they'll also set you up with some breakfast the day after to help you recover. Profits from the event will go toward Charlton's beautification project.

Free camping is available at the Charlton Football Club, and there's a free shuttle bus running from the camp site as well as all other Charlton accommodation. Tickets are available here.
