More than 1,000 guests attended the event, with the MC, Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson, entertaining the crowd with his witty banter and his engaging disposition. Melbourne band Kingswood performed an electric set, fresh from their Big Day Out tour and Sydney all-star cover band Furnace & The Fundamentals kept the party going long into the night, keeping guests on their feet with their fun and dynamic performance.

Patrón Tequila has been the key sponsor of the Rolling Stone Awards for the last four years, offering guests elaborate tequila cocktails using a variety of Patrón products. Their number one party trick last year was in the form of an ice sculpture – the ever-popular Patrón Tequila ice luge. This was continued this year, expanding to two Patrón luges featuring Patrón XO Café and the brand new Patrón XO Café Dark Cocoa Tequila. Cocktails were created specifically for this event, served in distinctive branded Patrón jam jars. The incredible cocktails included the Patrón Paloma, Patrón Mule, Passionfruit Margarita, and the crowd favourite was undeniably the Patrón XO Dark Espresso Martini.

Bluesfest director Peter Noble was presented with the Rolling Stone Award, which recognises an outstanding career-long contribution to popular culture. Other big winners on the night were Tame Impala (Live Act of the Year), Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds (Best Independent Release) and The Jezabels (Single of the Year for “The End”), as voted for by the readers of Rolling Stone and sponsored by Patrón).
