Oscars Law, Black Hawk & One Little Indian Enterprises are very proud to present, Dogapalooza, Melbourne’s first dog-friendly (and hands down most adorable) music festival, is back for its trilogy edition on Sunday November 12th on the grassy noles of Richmond’s Burnley Park.
For those who are tighter than a Maltese top knot, sadly our Early Dog Tickets (the dirt cheap ones) have sold out. Our Second Release tickets are now officially ON SALE. (We note, we do not sell tickets to dogs. Dogs are free, because they don’t have jobs or credit cards).

This adorable boutique festival is a quintessential ‘love fest’ of dogs (for dog owners and their dog coveting friends). After last years sold out attendances, increased production along with a bigger, better and faster stage fronted by RTR, more dog washing stations provided by Blue Wheelers and a Moon Dog Brewery Bar.
We are very pleased to announce our first fine artists to the line up:
Lanks is the moniker of Australian songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Will Cuming.
Although drawing influences from artists such as MØ, Mura Masa, The xx, Justin Vernon and Radiohead, LANKS doesn’t imitate.
His songs are adventurous and exploratory while still earworms - boasting strong hooks, melodies, and danceable beats.
LANKS’ live show is dynamic. Max Quinn from triple j said, “I was expecting serene prettiness, and I got SUPREME ENERGY.” He plays with a three piece band with live and electronic instrumentation including guitar, synths, piano/keyboard, drums, backing vocals, laptop, and the occasional flute cameo. LANKS has recently supported the likes of Glass Animals, Toro Y Moi, RUFUS and Ry X, and has played at Groovin’ the Moo and The Plot festivals.
Hayden’s music explores the realms of everything from folk through to downbeat electro, drawing comparisons to artists such as M83, Bon Iver and James Blake. Driven by his knack for heartfelt storytelling and impressive vocal range, Hayden’s sound remains faithful to that ‘late night’ vibe, while bringing forward his melodic side.
Since the release of his early work, right through to his most recent releases, Hayden has received significant attention across major international blogs and radio, played sold out shows in Australia and the UK and toured with the likes of Matt Corby, Tom Odell and The Antlers. Furthermore, Hayden has received continued international attention with songs being placed on popular TV shows such as Suits and the Oscar nominated film ‘Room’.
““His yearning vocals are very much in the Bon Iver mould amid the subtle meeting of folk and electronica….’Cut Love’ had me so immersed in all its intricacies that it was over before I knew it, leaving me wanting more.” – Indie Shuffle
