our Story so far…
On Saturday October 13th 2018, Hope Estate will host an All-Australian line up, bringing a new sound and music culture to the rolling hills and lush vines of the Hunter Valley.
FKA (Formerly Known As) Festival wasn’t just a catchy name, a few things led to the creation of the festival…
The history of Wine Country and Hope Estate
During the 1960’s The Hunter Valley Wine region was blooming, with Vineyards growing in numbers and wine lovers traveling from all over to get a taste of the Hunter Valley’s grapes!
In 2006 Rothbury Estate became Hope Estate and BAM! Hello live music and hello craft beer!
2. The Hunter Valley is NOT only for wine connoisseurs
The Hunter Valley will always been known for its beautiful wines. However, it’s not just about the wines anymore. Coming to the Hunter Valley has become an experience!
3. There is more to Wine Country than Jazz and Pub Rock!
Hope Estate is well known for hosting a large variety of artists. With a resume that holds names such as The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, and Midnight Oil (just to name a few).
So we thought… why not bring out some of our favourite Aussie artists to show off their talent at an all Aussie alt-rock festival! Let’s face it, it would be rude not to.
