The organisers of Hot Dub Wine Machine have announced the event will return to the Hunter Valley in 2018.

The winery event is the brainchild of audiovisual artist Hot Dub Time Machine (Tom Loud) –  a “time travelling DJ”, who has broken dance floors at sold-out shows all over the globe.

This year’s Hot Dub Wine Machine tour was a smashing success, with shows taking place at wineries all around the country. 

More than 10,000 wine and music lovers enjoyed the Hunter Valley party with the likes of PNAU, Miami Horror, Crooked Colours and more on stage back in March.

Next year’s event will take place at Hope Estate on March 10.

It’s all part of a stellar summer concert season in the Hunter Valley, which has already included shows by Midnight Oil, Stevie Nicks and the Pretenders, Live, The Cat Empire and Xavier Rudd and Yusuf (Cat Stevens).

In the new year Bimbadgen will host RNB Vine Days featuring TLC, Boyz II Men and Shaggy on February 3; a ‘90s alt-rock feast featuring the Living End, Spiderbait and Veruca Salt on February 24 and James Blunt’s The Afterlove Tour on March 10.

Roche Estate has announced two dates for its new festival series, with its Crossroads Blues in the Vines happening February 10 and Crossroads Country in the Vines on March 24, while Neil Diamond will also play at the venue on April 7.
