Calling all true rock ‘n’ roll lovers: don’t miss The Animals’ last ever Australian performance next month.

The Animals were perform for the very last time on these shores at Wanstock 2024, a proper rock ‘n’ roll festival that heads to Doncaster’s Shoppingtown Hotel on Saturday, March 2nd (see full dates below).

Wanstock has been going since 2018, born out of organiser Geoff Wan’s love of legendary Australian pub rock from the 80s and 90s.

The 2024 lineup is led by The Animals, the hugely influential British Invasion band from the 60s. The Animals have spent many years since touring the world with their blues-rock and psych-rock classics, and it’s a good time to catch them in Australia this year: arguably their greatest song, “The House of the Rising Sun”, celebrates its 60th birthday in 2024.


If The Animals landmark performance wasn’t somehow enticing enough, there’s plenty more sounds to satisfy music fans at Wanstock 2024.

New Zealand cult icons Dragon will perform at the festival, well-known to locals thanks to their induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2008 and their many recent headline and festival appearances round the country. Dragon already impressed Wanstock in 2023 and are already coming back for more.

Also returning to the festival following their 2020 slot are Ted Mulry Gang, best known for their hit 1975 single, “Jump in My Car”. which helped the Gang become the first Australian act to knock the one and only ABBA off the top of the Australian charts.
