Thousands of people filled the Bendigo Racecourse to enjoy Aussie music under the warm summer sun.
In its 10th year, the Red Hot Summer Tour returned to Bendigo with an impressive line-up that was welcomed by music lovers.
Hunters and Collectors, James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Boom Crash Opera and Killing Heidi all performed stellar sets on Saturday.
Regional Touring owner Duane McDonald said the day went very well.
"It was all good, the weather was fine, we got the cool change and it was a full house," he said. "James Reyne and Hunters and Collectors were popular but all of the acts were great."
Earlier in the week organisers source three giant misting fans to help keep the crowd cool during the show.
A number of meetings were held between organisers, stakeholders and emergency services with temperatures initially tipped to exceed 40 degrees before a cool change was forecast.
"We used the misting fans early on, in the first couple of hours," Mr McDonald said.
"But it wasn't scorching hot, the top was just over 35 degrees and there was a fair bit of cloud cover."
Mr McDonald said the tour was set to return again next year.
"Bendigo has such a strong music scene," he said. "Groovin the Moo is here for the younger demographic and there is things happening in pubs and clubs. Bendigo people love their music."
Bendigo Jockey Club chief executive Aaron Hearps said about 6000 people attended the event.
"It sold out some months ago and the crowd was very well behaved," he said.
"The weather was hot at the start of the day and cool by the end of it. people were looking for jackets and jumpers when it got dark.
"It is always a great line up and is about the fifth year we have had (the Red Hot Summer Tour) at the racecourse.
"I like seeing James Reyne. He always turns up and never puts in a bad performance."
Mr Hearps said Mr McDonald and his team was very well organised in setting up for the show as well as packing it away.
"They have got some great event planners," he said. "It all ran really smoothly and they'll be out by early next week. We won't find one empty can, you wouldn't know they had been here.
"They're a pleasure to work with and were pretty confident we will see in them in 2021."
