As the sun set on Bendigo's Prince of Wales Showgrounds, the big music acts stepped up.
There was plenty of quality music being performed by Holy Holy and DMA's in the afternoon ahead Aussie acts Regurgitator and Hilltop Hoods.
In the Moolin Rouge, Aurora and Crooked Colour brightened the evening before US rapper Coolio hit the stage at 8.30pm.
Across the showgrounds at the same time, 17-year-old US performer Billie Eilish performed before Hermitude closed out the festival from 9.25pm.
GTM promoter Stephen Halpin said the organisers worked to create a line-up based on what was trending in the music world.
"We do a lot of research to fit within our budget and ticket prices," he said.
"But we also try to pick what bands are likely to be popular six months from when we book them. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
"Music trends change. When we started indie bands were really popular. Hip hops grown since then. It was always big but it has gone to another level."
Mr Halpin said Billie Eilish was one of the most popular performers on this year's tour.
"She's on a bit of a whirlwind. She's playing so many gigs," he said. "I think she having a good time. She has a really great relationship with her fans and identifies with them.
"I read she ran her own Justin Beiber fan club and because of that she understands fandom. And you can see that. She really cares about her fans and it shows in her set."
Over the years, Mr Halpin said GTM had grown a strong reputation among national bands.
"It's great to have Hilltop Hoods and Hermitude back again but we have Nick Murphy for the first time as well," he said.
"The line-up has shown it's really great right from the opening with Angie McMahon and G-Flip."
