About the acts:
ELIZABETH ROSE is an electronic pop producer from Sydney that has been taking the world by storm with her latest single “The Good Life” one of the most played songs on Triple J. Much loved at home and abroad she is gaining the reputation of one of the most engaging new artists on the planet.
THE TROUBLE WITH TEMPLETON recently released their Triple J feature album “Rookie” to rave reviews globally. Thomas Calder and his band mates have been steadily building over the last couple of years into one of the most loved new Australian artists and most sought after Internationally.
HEY GERONIMO are sure to get the party started with their up-tempo indie pop party. They have recently released their “Erring On The Side Of Awesome” EP which only solidifies their reputation for bringing the fun.
The following Friday March 14th we are working on emulating one of our highlights from 2013. VIOLENT SOHO were so good last year that we have invited them back. They headlined our rock n roll party and completely deserve the honours again this year. Their achievements in the last 12 months have been astonishing with their new album “Hungry Ghost” debuting at #6 on the ARIA charts. They have also been selling out venues all over the country and confirming their place as one of the most exciting guitar bands ever to come out of Australia.
BAD//DREEMS are an incredibly exciting new rock n roll band straight outta Adelaide. Their new single “Hoping For” is one of the most played songs on Triple J and their stunning live show is proving to be one of the most in demand this summer.
THE SINKING TEETH are a three piece rock n roll band from Melbourne that are straight out of the mould of a proper hard working rock n roll band. Seemingly on the road since they started, they could well be your new favourite band.
Last but not least is the true collision of music and surf culture on Friday March 21st with BAND OF FREQUENCIES presenting the Queensland premiere screening of ‘The Transparentsea Voyage – A Modern Voyage with Ancient Creatures’ featuring a live performance of songs from the film by Band of Frequencies + special guests, and artwork displayed by Howie Cooke (S4C).
