Our indoor main stage is once again set to host a local lineup of bands for your enjoyment through out the day, and keep you entertained with a host of other activities.
2016 was been a pivotal year for Bec Sandridge, earning to accolade of being one of the most played artists on Triple J Unearthed. The past six months in particular have seen a signing to Wollongong label Farmer and the Owl, heavy airplay on triple j and community radio, a myriad of shows including main support for Montaigne and Cub Sport on their national tours and a standout appearance at BIGSOUND.
Barely Standing are an emerging Melbourne based duo that have been packing out venues with high octane performances up and down the east coast over the last 12 months. The band are already a well known local act from their residencies and gigs at various venues including the iconic Vineyard in St Kilda.
Our infamous Bingo will be returning for the third year running, only this time a very special secret guest will be hosting. Just who? You'll find out closer to the date but prepare yourself for bad jokes, innuendo, and a whole lot of fun with heaps of swag for us to giveaway.

Know a mate that's in desperate need of a makeover of the follicle kind? Here's your chance to dob him or her in for a makeover with a rock n roll twist.
One of the most iconic and luscious greens in Melbourne, the bowling club serves as the major anchor for the whole day.
A new addition to the event, the Stone & Wood Bowling Club will be an oasis built alongside the bowling green offering you the perfect view of all the action. Visit one of our dedicated Stone &Amp; Wood bars to fetch yourself a cold brew, and then sit back with your mates and soak in the atmosphere.
Proceeds raised will be donated to Orange Sky Laundry who provide mobile laundry and shower facilities for Australiaâ€™s homeless.
For those of you who donâ€™t feel up to the task, or just want something a bit more casual, our friendly lawn bowls experts will be on hand to help you out with our free-play bowling lanes all day. Spots are limited, so you must visit the Stone & Wood Bowling Club on the day to secure a lane and time for you and your mates.
Against the backdrop of triple jâ€™s Hottest 100, punters again can be treated to their very own private oasis at the Secret Garden, fitted with deckchairs, bean bags, and umbrellas.
Triple Jâ€™s Hottest 100 has become an annual institution, and Bowled Over has become one of the biggest celebrations around the country to embrace it.
Speakers placed in every area of the venue will be blasting the Hottest 100 all day to the public, providing excitement and a talking point as we all countdown to see who will be crowned in 2017.
Try your hand at the ancient Roman sport of Bocce on our brand new purpose built court in the heart of the Secret Garden. Challenge your mates to master the game and you could be going home with a ton of prizes and goodies.
Direct from the Caribbean to St Kilda, the Sailor Jerry experience is coming to Bowled Over with its own dedicated bar and some of Melblourne's best mixologists making the best rum cocktails under the sun.
Sailor Jerry's recipe is based on the tradition of sailors improving the flavour of their on-board rum rations. Every year, a team of William Grant & Sons blending specialists travel to the Caribbean to inspect distilleries and identify the finest rums.
Need an afternoon pick me up? Look no further than our dedicated Red Bull cocktail bar where our mixologists will be on hand all day to make you drinks that are sure to put that spring back into your step and those wings back on your back.
2016 sees the addition of our new Picnic Park, a great place to stop and grab a bite to eat with plenty of picnic tables, shade, and of course food.
After the first and only pop-up by Sweetwater Inn, Guy Bentley and Mark Catsburg are back with ex-Sweetwater bar manager Jonathan Harper and chef Nick Stanton (Longhorn Saloon, Nieuw Amsterdam), with their new restaurant Leonardâ€™s House of Love bringing their much loved tasty dishes to Bowled Over 2016.
With classics that redefine the concept of fast food (wings, burgers; hello Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!), this is fun and unpretentious fare. You haven't tasted chicken until you've tasted Leonard's chicken.
There's nothing more Australian than a good old-fashioned barbeque, and what better day to celebrate our national pastime than by throwing a snag on the barbie at Bowled Over.
That's right, our traditional Aussie BBQ is making a return and will feature all your favourites. We'll also have a bunch of salads and other snacks to choose from to keep the munchies away through out the day.
