The world-first of its kind festival A Hitch To The Sticks returns in 2019, bringing Tex Perkins & His Fat Rubber Band, Magic Dirt, Stonefield, Ella Hooper, Dallas Crane and more to stages across the Wangaratta region.
Bachelor Girl, Cookin' On 3 Burners, Davidson Brothers, Emilee South and much more will also lend their considerable talents to the third iteration of the regional festival on November1-3 (Melbourne Cup Weekend).
A Hitch To The Sticks was born when Wangaratta-bred Australian rock legend/co-festival director Dallas Frasca joined forces with her business partner in crime Renee Delahunty. The pair's mission? To bring city and regional punters together for a celebration of live music that embraces regional history, local artists and produce, indigenous culture and unique event spaces while utilising Wangaratta's spectacular country landscape as its backdrop.
A Hitch To The Sticks captured the imagination of the Australian music industry when it launched the out of the box concept of offering 50 lucky punters a once in a lifetime experience to travel from Melbourne's CBD, three hours North-East on a three-day musical bus safari, to discover the hidden gems of the Wangaratta region. AHTTS provides an action-packed weekend with 9 events, 6 VIP events exclusive to the bus ticket holders. With Dallas as your host, VIP passengers will have exclusive access to secret locations, celebrity hitchhikers, singalongs and maybe even the adventure of your life. 50% of the Bus tickets to the 2019 Hitch To The Sticks Festival have sold so you best get in quick to secure "Not so much a ticket, but a portal to the greatest weekend of my life!" - Punter
