Last chance to see Hot Dub at Wine Machine festival

His DJ moniker has become synonymous with popular music festival Wine Machine, but for Hot Dub, next weekend will be his last — for now.

Tom Lowndes, aka Hot Dub, is in South Australia quarantining ahead of the festival at Oakover Grounds in the Swan Valley on October 23.

Lowndes, pictured, is parting ways with the festival to focus on new creative projects, but hasn’t ruled out pulling a “John Farnham” down the track and making a return.

“Wine Machine was originally Hot Dub Wine Machine and was started by me and my former manager — we have since parted ways amicably and it’s his festival now … and I’m just a DJ,” he told PerthNow.


As far as what’s next for Lowndes, he hopes to play at festivals such as Groovin the Moo, and is also working on a history of dance and rave passion project.

And despite being locked down in Sydney on and off for most of the past 18 months, minus gigs, he says he’s maintained an “insanely positive outlook” throughout.

“I think people in the music industry have a tendency to whinge, when in fact it’s affected everybody in a lot of ways. It’s affected a lot of people really negatively,” he said.

“I don’t think there’s anything particularly special about my situation but it has been tough.”

Wine Machine will be Lowndes’ first live show in at least five months, after keeping busy by performing his live Hot Dub at Home sets to thousands of people around the world online.

“I didn’t become a DJ to DJ to a GoPro in a room — I’m pretty stoked to be coming to WA and stand on a stage in front of 10,000 people,” he said.

“Wine Machine in WA has been the saviour for me. Last year was just such a release, such a joy. It just feels like another world.

“In Sydney, you really do walk around in such a heightened state of anxiety — it’s warranted — but to come to Perth, just to be able to go into a shop, then go for run and then do a gig, it’s a delight.”
