Harley-Davidson Australia is set to stage an epic event in Williamstown, Victoria this April as part of the brand’s global 110th Anniversary celebrations. Taking place from Friday 12th – Sunday 14th April at the Seaworks Maritime Precinct, the event honours 110 years of freedom, classic motorcycles and good times, and features a huge range of entertainment and activities for Harley-Davidson owners and enthusiasts.
Rock music icon Jimmy Barnes will headline the entertainment with an exclusive performance on Saturday. Supporting acts will be announced in the lead up to the event.
In addition to live music, this one-off Australian celebration offers 2013 motorcycle demos, a vintage motorcycle museum, the Harley-Davidson Dyno drag race simulator, limited edition merchandise and access to the HD-1 Custom Shop – a mobile showroom with over 300 unpackaged Parts & Accessories products and interactive customisation features to help riders envisage their dream machines.
Attendees will have the chance to immerse themselves in the Harley-Davidson culture with a visit to the H-D Experience Tent to get a quick beard trim or boot shine at the Chop Shop and have their photo taken on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
Harley Owners Group (H.O.G) activities during the celebration include a special members-only event Friday night and the much-anticipated Thunder Run on Sunday 14th April, when thousands of riders rumble through the streets of Williamstown in unison.
“An event like this only comes along every 110 years, so we anticipate that thousands of our fans will join us for this milestone occasion”, said Marketing Director for Harley-Davidson Australia, Adam Wright. “Jimmy Barnes embodies the independent spirit of Harley-Davidson. We look forward to what will no doubt be a spectacular performance as he helps us celebrate 110 years of freedom.”
The general public are invited to be part of the action all day Saturday and Sunday. General admission ticket prices as follow:
Weekend ticket (Saturday + Sunday): $75
Saturday only: $65
Sunday only: $30
H.O.G Members are able to purchase three day VIP passes for $110, which includes a 30th Anniversary H.O.G pin, 110th Anniversary Australia patch, cap, bandana and pin. Under 18s will not be admitted into the event on Friday or Saturday, however they will gain free entry on Sunday 14th April if accompanied by a ticketed guest.
The Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary is a year-long, global celebration connecting millions of fans across the globe by fulfilling dreams of personal freedom, self-expression and epic adventure. The events span 11 countries on six continents and will culminate in two major events in Rome and Milwaukee later this year.
