Tex Perkins and Magic Dirt locked in for A Hitch to the Sticks music festival

Magic Dirt

The regional festival makes a return.

Wangaratta music festival A Hitch to the Sticks has announced its return in 2019, bringing with it a ripper lineup of homegrown acts. Taking place over the Melbourne Cup weekend, the three-day festival is family friendly and shines a spotlight on Wangaratta’s spectacular landscape and regional culture.

Headlining this year’s festival are none other than Tex Perkins and The Fat Rubber Band, with Aussie rockers Magic Dirt also making an appearance on the bill. Acts rounding off the lineup include Ella Hooper, Stonefield, Dallas Crane, Cookin’ On 3 Burners and Emilee South.

A Hitch To The Sticks was born in 2018 and ran two events across north-east Victoria last year, bringing with it 4,600 punters and $392,000 for the local economy.
