Lemonade Music Festival to be held at Stephenson Park, Sale, during the Labour Day long weekend next year

A HUGE music festival will be coming to Sale next March, with 12 Australian bands expected to grace a fully-fledged, festival-style stage at Stephenson Park.

Lemonade Music Festival, to be held March 8, 2020, will host a full day's program from noon until 11pm, and organisers say they are expecting the major festival to attract up to 10,000 revellers.

It will be a huge weekend for music in Sale, with a favourite annual fixture, the Sale Music Festival, being held the day prior in Sale Botanic Gardens.

From the same people that brought Live on the Hill (featuring huge Aussie acts John Butler Trio and Pete Murray) to Wy Yung Pub, the $1.2 million project has taken a solid four years to organise.

The anticipated lineup for the festival is expected to be released early next month, when ticketing information will also become available.

It will be a huge weekend for music in Sale, with a favourite annual fixture, the Sale Music Festival, being held the day prior in Sale Botanic Gardens.

Held from 11am until 7pm, the free community event provides revellers continuous music from a wide cross section of Gippsland musical talent.

The family-friendly day is a picnic event, where people are encouraged to take their own picnic, but food will also be available, provided by local service clubs.

Wellington Shire mayor Alan Hall said having the Sale Music Festival and the Lemonade Music Festival take place on consecutive days meant locals and tourists would be treated to a top weekend of live music.

"For those who don't live in Wellington, it's the perfect opportunity for them to visit, stay a few days, check out the festivals and see what else our region has to offer," he said.

"This is the best possible outcome for these two events, and we thank the organisers of both for being so accommodating and working together to make this weekend of live music in Wellington happen."

More information on the Sale Music Festival will be released closer to its date.
