Check out these Meredith Music Festival photos of the past

It’s that time of year again when thousands of Ballarat people pack up their camping gear and hit the road for the Meredith Music Festival.

In what has become an annual pilgrimage for thousands of Ballarat people, the cars are packed and the countdown is on.

Some people will have been up before light on Friday morning to secure the best possible camping spot, while others will still be stuck at work, counting down the hours until 5pm.

Are you wondering what it is all about?

Are you feeling nostalgic?

Are you waiting for work to finish so you can hit the road?

Wind the clock back and cast your eye over Meredith Music Festival over the years with our mega-gallery (above), dating back to 2005.
