Mt Hotham Falls Creek - - FRONT PAGE -

ONCE again there are plenty of big mu­sic acts play­ing at Mt Hotham and Falls Creek in Au­gust and to make sure you don’t miss out here are the big­gest names to hit the stages on both moun­tains this month.

Fes­ti­val favourite Hot Dub Time Ma­chine, the world’s first time-trav­el­ling party, is set to take crowds on a tran­scen­dent dance through pop mu­sic history at Hotham’s Swindlers Bar on Au­gust 6 be­fore a show the fol­low­ing night The Man in Falls Creek.

Mashing up tunes from 1954 to 2015 on vinyl turnta­bles with awe­some vis­ual ef­fects, Hot Dub Time Ma­chine aka DJ Tom Loud has quickly be­come one of the big­gest ticket selling elec­tronic acts in Aus­tralia, smash­ing main stages at ev­ery mar­quee fes­ti­val in­clud­ing Splen­dour In The Grass, Falls Fes­ti­val, Stere­o­son- ic, and Groovin The Moo.

DJ Tom has also just re­turned to the coun­try from per­form­ing con­sec­u­tive sell-out shows across Europe in­clud­ing head­lin­ing the 100,000 strong Hog­manay NYE in Ed­in­burgh while also mak­ing his US de­but at Coachella.

Tick­ets are $20 and can be pur­chased through Moshtix.

On Au­gust 21, Mel­bourne three piece rock band Dal­las Frasca will play a free show at Falls Creek’s The Man.

Hav­ing won Triple J’s ‘Light Your Fuse’ com­pe­ti­tion back in 2006, the same year in which they formed, Dal­las Frasca is now a sea­soned vet­eran on the Aus­tralian fes­ti­val scene.

The 2010 Mu­sicoz Awards Artist Of The Year re­cently re­leased their third stu­dio al­bum, Love Army - which hit the Top 20 ARIA Charts and Top 10 Aus­tralian Al­bum Charts in its first week of re­lease - and will be play­ing all their new­est songs for you.

Aus­tralia’s favourite hip hop snow friends Bliss n Eso are back tour­ing the Vic­to­rian Alps once again.

Af­ter the suc­cess of last year’s tour MC Bliss, MC Eso and DJ Izm are on their way back to do what they do best, cause havoc on the moun­tain and blow the roof off ev­ery venue they play - with two decks, a mixer and a pair of mics.

Their 2015 snow tour will start at Mt Buller be­fore they hit Mt Hotham on Au­gust 20 at Swindlers and then Falls Creek six days later at The Man on the Au­gust 26.

City­Wide Krew will be the sup­port act for the Buller and Hotham shows and Mind Over Mat­ter will kick things off at Falls Creek.

Tick­ets are $50 and

ex- tremely lim­ited so get in quick be­fore shows are sold out.

Few 90s kids won’t re­mem­ber lis­ten­ing to Mel­bourne punk rock­ers 28 Days and fans can re­live all their favourite child­hood and teenage tracks when they step on to the stage at The Man on Au­gust 29.

Hav­ing re­leased five stu­dio al­bums three of which de­buted in the ARIA top 40, 28 Days saw plenty of suc­cess in their hay day.

Their sec­ond al­bum Up­style­down which de­buted at num­ber 1 in July 2000 went cer­ti­fied plat­inum while also see­ing com­mer­cial suc­cess on the Aus­tralian sin­gles charts with songs like ‘Rip It Up’, ‘Good­bye’ and ‘What’s the Deal.

Af­ter call­ing it quits in 2007 the band got back to­gether in 2009 and over the past few years have re­turned to play­ing shows.

PARTY TIME: Fes­ti­val favourite Hot Dub Time Ma­chine will hit stages at Mt Hotham and Falls Creek early in Au­gust.
