You are invited to the inaugural Daintonfest at Dainton Brewery and Tap House at 560 Frankston-Dandenong Rd, Carrum Downs. This live music and craft beer festival is on Sunday, June 9, as part of the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. In fact, the Dainton crew are so excited that they have already announced their intention to make it an annual event. 

So gather together your fellow beer-lovers or those social butterflies who are keen to be immersed in the atmosphere as bands hit the outdoor festival stage complete with lights so the crowd can continue into the night. Dare we say it, but this could be Carrum Downs’ first music festival — and who wouldn’t want to be a part of history?  This is the real deal, folks, and get ready as Dainton Brewery is set to make some noise. 

From the image on this page, you might have already guessed that the headline act is none other than Melbourne’s own rock legends, Dallas Crane. Dainton Brewery describes Dallas Crane’s unique sound like this: if you created a hypothetical musical legend baby from Credence, Cold Chisel, The Kinks and You Am I, you’d get a sound almost as good as these guys. There, they said it.  

Supporting this, urgh, newborn offspring of the latter musical legends are many more favourite Melbourne bands and acoustic sets throughout the day on the tap house stage. It’ll be a day to remember with Echo Del Tusker, The Barebones, Ben Mastwyk, Ghost Towns of the Midwest and more. Food trucks will also be in attendance, with Mr Alex’s Low ‘N’ Slow Smoked Meats and — in true Dainton Brewery style – truckloads of beer. There will be 18 taps plus an additional ‘can’ bar featuring even more Dainton beers. 

With tickets going for only $35, why not get your Sunday session in full swing as you rest easy in the knowledge that there is a public holiday the next day. It makes sense to prepare for your Monday off at Daintonfest. 

This event is strictly 18-plus, and tickets are selling quicker than you can pour a beer so don't miss out — visit or purchase your tickets via
