Boogie 6 Release Set Times, Offer Alternative Travel After Trains Cancelled
Boogie 6 kicks off in just a few days over the Easter weekend that will see the likes of Justin Townes Earle, Jim James from My Morning Jacket, Dead Meadow, Snakadaktal, and Lanie Lane decend upon the sleepy town of Tallarook for one hell of a rock n roll party.
Organisers have just released set times for the festival, which we can safely say, due to the fact there is only one stage, has no clashes. You can have a look and download the timetable sheet below.
There’s also some important info that anyone planning on travelling by train this year needs the read. The most important thing to note about train travel is that there is none this year. Ticket holders should have received this info already, but here it is again.
Most unfortunately V/Line have decided that Easter is a good time to do track work on the Seymour line that takes you to and from Tallarook station. Fear not though Boogie lovers! We have worked it out that they will run a series of coaches from Southern Cross station to Tallarook station on Friday, and from Tallarook station to Southern Cross on Monday.
Times are not quite as flexible as they were when trains were running ever hour, but you do have some choice.
The times for Friday April 6 are:
1.53pm depart Southern Cross bus terminal
3.13pm depart Southern Cross bus terminal
The times for Monday April 9 are:
10.30am depart Tallarook station
11.36am depart Tallarook station
The shuttle bus will take you form Tallarook station to Boogie on Friday and back again on Monday.
You can still use your bus ticket you will receive with your Boogie ticket, if you checked train travel when buying tickets, on any form of public transport in Zone 1 to get you to and from Southern Cross station.
Look for the Boogie volunteers at Southern Cross station on Friday to direct you to the right bus bay at the Southern Cross Bus Terminal.
There’s a hell of a lot at stake when performing at a festival – potentially the biggest crowd of an artist’s career, being pitted against nature’s elements, sound and lighting that could go wrong at any moment. There’s the pressure to blow the act after you off stage, there’s the pressure to live up to hype and show that you are capable of pulling off a show on a massive stage. Mnay acts have come a cropper when trying to do this but many have risen to the occasion; the adrenaline and the massive crowds either overcoming them or proving that they are capable of being one of the best bands in the world. Join us as we count down some of the best festival performances ever. Watch this slideshow »
