Icehouse, James Reyne, Pete Murray, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Motor Ace have been revealed as the line-up for By The C 2021 in Sydney and Melbourne.

By The C 2021 will be by the sea in Cronulla, Sydney and St Kilda, Melbourne in March 2021.

Australian Crawl, led by James Reyne and Icehouse overlapped most of the 1980s

Icehouse and Australian Crawl kicked off roughly at the same time. Australian Crawl’s first single ‘Beautiful People’ was released in August 1979. The second single ‘The Boys Light Up’ came out in May, 1980, the same month as Icehouse’s first single ‘Can’t Help Myself’ was released.

Every act on By The C has had a no one album or single. Icehouse’s biggest hit was ‘Electric Blue’ in 1987.

James Reyne hit number one Australian Crawl and ‘Reckless’ in 1983.

Since 2003’s ‘Feeler’ Pete Murray has delivered five Top 10 albums, including three number ones. His most recent ‘Camacho’ peaked at no 3 on the ARIA chart.

Baby Animals self-titled album in 1991 was a number one record. The second album ‘Shaved and Dangerous’ reached number two.

Killing Heidi had their first number one with ‘Mascara’ in 1999.

Melbourne’s Motor Ace reached no 1 with their second album ‘Shoot This’ in 2002.
