Just as the festival season heats up with some big events, so too are some more local events announced, with local roots/rock festival ‘Shed Rock’ now entering it’s fifth year with a February 7, 2015 date confirmed.

The event is the brainchild of Turk Tresize (aka. Mr Shed Rock), starting as a small event for fellow musicians and friends at his farm, 50kms south east of Melbourne in Cannons Creek. After two tumultuous festivals in 2011 battling the weather, the last two events have been all about “keeping it real and raw, and rockin’ out in the sun,” according to organisers.

Gates are set to open at 9am for campers, with bands starting from midday in a line-up including headliners Phil Manning and Eric Lee Beddingfield (USA), as well as Electric Mary, Dirt River Radio , King of the North and more. You can kick back and enjoy the countryside, fresh air, great tunes and a few cool drinks before sleeping under the stars.

Shed Rock #5 is set for February 7, 2015, with early bird tickets available for $40 and a discount available for bookings of 10+.
