Floods, quagmires of muds, and heavy rains – this is how hundreds of music fans spent their weekend at A Day on the Green festival

Despite the weather forecasts of damaging winds and torrential rains for its Mt. Duneed Estate location, the music festival went ahead with its planned dates. The Saturday downpour didn’t stop ticket holders from enjoying the music or artists from performing.

Social media pictures depicted festival-goers watching energetic performances from music acts like Crowded House, Angus and Julia Stone, and The Waifs while donning raincoats, gumboots, and tarps. 

The aftermath of the wild weather left many stranded – slippery slopes and muddy fields were not the only obstacles attendees faced. Some revelers had to sleep in their cars and four-wheel vehicles were bogged in the parking area, leaving people with no way to exit the festival grounds. 

On Sunday, tractors were deployed to get the stranded festival-goers out of the muddy fields. 

Many attendees slammed A Day on the Green’s rain, asking why the festival wasn’t postponed for a sunnier occasion. Before the start of the music event, organizers said the festival was safe to launch, but advised attendees to wear storm-ready outfits. 

They further added that due to the weather conditions, on-site parking will be restricted to four-wheel vehicles. Shuttle buses from designated drop-off and parking spots were introduced to make sure that revelers arrive safely on festival grounds.
