A Day on the Green and CAP Security Services

October 31, 2018

To celebrate John Farnham’s sold-out A Day on the Green concert at Sirromet Wines on December 2, CAP Security Services will be looking back at our 11-year partnership with the event.

A Day on the Green is a concert tour that runs during the Australian summer. Incredible local and international artists perform at each A Day on the Green event throughout the season, making it one of the most beloved music events on the annual tour calendar.

Self-described as ‘Big Day Out for grown-ups,’ A Day on The Green tours throughout Australia to beautiful outdoor spaces, where you can bring your own picnic basket and enjoy the fine wine served at Australia’s best wineries. The Queensland venue is Sirromet Wines at Mount Cotton, and our team has been providing security services for the event since 2010.


A Day on the Green History

A Day on the Green was started by husband and wife duo, Michael and Anthea Newton. They wanted to create a music event at a big outdoor space where people could come together and listen to their favourite artists in the sun, with good food and good drinks. They held the very first A Day on the Green at Morning Star Estate in Mount Eliza, Victoria on January 26, 2001.

The first show was a resounding success, and the event has been expanding ever since. They now hold contracts with 18 wineries and other outdoor venues across Australia. A Day on The Green expanded internationally this year to New Zealand.

Over the past 17 years, the Newton’s have built a unique music event that’s accessible to many Australians across the country. The concert tour is constantly innovating to keep up with demand and adding venues every year.

A Day on The Green has been experienced by 3.2 million people at over 450 concerts to date. Concert-goers have had the pleasure of seeing international legends such as Elton John, Bryan Adams, James Blunt, Stevie Nicks, Cyndi Lauper, and newcomer this year, Florence and the Machine. The event also supports local, emerging talent and of course, Aussie legends such as Jimmy Barnes, Daryl Braithwaite and John Farnham.
