V.I.P. passes to Falls, rare Adele Merchandise, Gibson home audio pack, Fall Out Boy passes and V.I.P. tickets to Beyond the Valley are just some of the items on offer as this year’s Dogapalooza Event Launch and Silent Auction. Off the back of a successful two years of the festival in Melbourne, Dogapalooza has now announced the official launch for its trilogy event, a not for profit initiative where music and dog lovers unite to raise money for Oscar’s Law. The official launch (and its infamous auction) will take place at the Grace Darling Hotel in Collingwood on Tuesday the 17th of October, kicking off at 7:30pm.
A donation on entry is all you need to have a chance to bid on these awesome auction items. The event will be MC’d by none other than Channel 10’s Animal Extra Walt Collins with tinnies by Moon Dog Brewery on offer all night. Up for auction is a tonne of music rarities ranging from merch packs from Milk! Records, Jarrah Records and Eleven Music to tickets for Foo Fighters, Fuel, Pitch Festival, Katy Perry and Rockwiz as well as vouchers for outdoor adventures with your pooch with Gourmet Pawprints and a professional photography session with Frog Dog Studios, amongst much, much more.
Abby Gee, Dogapalooza Melbourne’s Event Director, said “the amount of love Dogapalooza receives in the form of festival ticket donations for the auction is astounding, Falls Festival, A Weekened In the Garden and Beyond the Valley in particular give us as much as we need. The industry has consistently been so generous since we began 3 years ago. It’s clear everyone respects Oscar’s Law and well, everyone loves dogs, and we raise a lot of money to save a lot of dogs.”
In addition to the incredible auction items up for grabs, there will be limited tickets available to Dogapalooza 2017 for a special ‘Friends of Dogapalooza’ price, for those who missed out on Early Dog tickets.
The festival will be held at Richmond’s Burnley Park on Sunday the 12th of November, featuring artists LANKS, Evangeline, Deborah Conway, Abby Cardwell and DJ Mac Fleetwood as well as delicious ethical food offerings from Rice N’ Dice and Jerry’s Vegiburgers, sweet treats from Let’s Waffle ‘n’ Shake and ‘Beer Can’ brew from Moon Dog Brewery. There will also be celebrity appearances, dog washing stations provided by Blue Wheelers and limited edition official Dogpalooza merch.
