Excusez-Moi, Wine Machine’s Chucking A Festival At A French Chateau

After a couple of very successful festival runs around Australia‘s wine country, Hot Dub Time Machine is taking the Wine Machine tour global, to a very fitting region of the world – France.

Machine du Vin is a three-day vino and good vibes bonanza, and as the name suggests, it’s being held in a fuckin’ CHATEAU (extremely old castle) in the south of France. Wrap your mind around that one for a hot minute.

More specifically, Machine du Vin is happening from August 31 to September 2 at the L’Abbaye Château de Camon – an ancient Benedictine monastery that dates back to the 10th Century – just outside of Toulouse, in the south-west of the country. It’s stunning, like…really gorgeous.


Hot Dub is bringing a serious party with him too, with a smorgasbord of AussieEuropean, and American party people invited along to make some serious noise in the wine region.

Alongside Hot Dub Time Machine, you’ll be treated to a DJ set from Bonobo and 2ManyDJs, and full sets from Booka Shade, CC Disco, Claptone, Erol Alkan, Hercules & Love Affair, Human Movement, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Roosevelt, Tensnake, The Magician, Tourist, What So Not, Young Franco, Yuksek, and a whole bunch more to be announced.

Now it’s not just a big festival full of music, cos you’ll be in the thick of the most famous wine country in the world, of course, you’ll be able to do some fancy French shit to look ~cultured~ on Insta. Think long table lunches in a sea of sunflowers, grape stomping, floating down the nearby river with a cocktail in hand, a late-night rave cave in a fucking tunnel, as well as watching the perfect sunset smearing a gorgeous blush light over the rolling hills. Ugh, I already feel so blissed out.

Punters are welcomed to camp or glamp on the castle’s grounds, and be treated to hot coffee and pastries (yes, croissants) every morning, book your own little slice of the French countryside in nearby Toulouse and Camon OR stay in Château de Camon itself (but you gotta sing out to the accommodation angels for that one)

Pre-sale tickets can be snapped up over on the Machine du Vin site from 6pm AEST on Tuesday, June 5, and keep your eye out for more info as the whole chardy party draws nearer.
