GMF offers top-notch food and bev for 2018 fest

Gozleme, wood-fired pizza, gin cocktails, Indian food, beer and cider on tap, ice-cream sundaes and local wine will all be on offer to complement the awesome Australian music at Grampians Music Festival 2018.

Festival Director Carly Flecknoe said the committee were rapt to have secured some great food and beverage partners and vendors for the 2018 fest, including Patient Wolf Gin for the VIP cocktail bar, Blue Pyrenees for the boutique wine garden, and Prickly Moses, which will once again bring its popular Beer Bus.

Carly said food vendors would aim to please all palates with offerings such as South African street food, pulled pork and beef, curry, coffee, wood-fired pizza, Turkish gozleme and a bright-pink ice-cream van serving soft serves, ice-cream sundaes and other icy treats.

There will also be a fundraising barbecue run by the Halls Gap Primary School, and the town’s cricket and golf clubs.

“We think our 2018 food and beverage partners are really going to add to the festival’s colour and excitement,” she said.

“Sipping a gin cocktail while eating wood-fired pizza, watching the sun set behind the Grampians ranges and listening to some of the country’s best up-and-coming artists – what’s not to love about that?”

Patient Wolf Distilling Co. was founded by two mates, Matt and Dave. Their boutique distillery is based in Brunswick, and they will supply the VIP Tent with delicious gin cocktails, which are under wraps for now!

Prickly Moses’ mobile brewery made an appearance at GMF’s debut performance in February 2017 and was an instant hit with everyone – attendees, artists and crew alike. The beer bus and its passionate staff return in 2018 for another outing on the Valley Floor, offering a range of hand-crafted beers and ciders on tap.

Local winery Blue Pyrenees Estate, will provide an inviting and intimate atmosphere for GMF’s wine garden, which is sure to add to the atmosphere and complement the amazing new Australian music playing on the Valley Floor Stage.

GMF’s 2018 line-up was announced in October, attracting the attention of some of the industry’s hard hitters, including Triple J, for the fantastic range of up-and-coming talent it has secured.
