Music’s biggest names hit the slopes
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.

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.
