Sunbury Pop Festival, Victoria, 1972-1975

Sunbury Pop Festival, Victoria, 1972-1975

The Sunbury Pop Festival was held over the Australia Day long weekend from 1972 to 1975 at a private farm near Sunbury, Victoria. Although it was billed as the Australian version of Woodstock, its line-up of bands and artists represented a clear transition from the hippie movement to Australian pub rock. Bands included Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs, Max Merritt and the Meteors, Skyhooks, Sherbet, ACDC and Daddy Cool.

Around 35,000 people attended the first Sunbury Pop Festival in 1972 but by 1975, attendance rates had dropped to around 16,000 owing to bad weather and increased ticket prices. Festival organisers not only suffered severe financial losses in that year but also enraged many of the acts when they paid $60,000 to British band, Deep Purple, but paid local artists nothing. This would be the last Sunbury Pop Festival.
