"This years' A Day on the Green was a fantastic event". Gaye Pattison of ABC Online said.
 

"The eighth annual Day on the Green was held at All Saints Estate in Wahgunyah at the weekend.

The Model's Sean Kelly, Richard Clapton, Baby Animals and INXS entertained the 4000 plus crowd.

There were some minor issues, not enough portaloos for the ladies, too few food vendors, and it was JD Fortune and not Micheal Hutchence rocking the stage.

Hutchence's was the founding lead singer-songwriter of INXS from 1977 until his death in a Sydney Hotel room in November 1997.

J D Fortune has fronted INXS since he won the right to do so in the Rockstar contest of June 2006.

But as the sun set on Day on the Green in Wahgunyah on Saturday and INXS took to the stage in suits, fans were on their feet.

From the classics, to some new arrangements, INXS took their audience on a musical journey.

In amongst the crowd was former world surfing champion Layne Beachley who took photos from the pit in front of the stage, of husband Kurt Pengilly and the rest of the band.

A poignant moment came when the original band members formed a semi circle for a rendition of Don't Change.

The Farriss' brothers also paid homage to the farming community, saying they understand and respect anything and everything people are going through at the moment.

Another crowd favourite was Baby Animal's lead singer, Suze DeMarchi.

When she called for some baby birds to feed, several fans rushed to the stage.

DeMarchi then took a swig from a wine bottle and re-poured the contents from her mouth into the mouths of two fans remarking "what, I've got to feed my baby birds".

The rain free Day on the Green left fans saying it was "fantastic, great, and absolutely fabulous". One commented "it's unreal for Rutherglen, a small community to put on something so sensational"."
