To date, The Preatures have performed at many of the world’s most respected music festivals including Coachella, Glastonbury, Bonarroo, Splendour in The Grass and Pentaport in Korea. Now, they are playing both the Adelaide and Sydney Beer & BBQ Festival!
HOLY HOLY just wrapped up their biggest year to date after the release of their critically acclaimed, ARIA #7 sophomore record “PAINT”. A daring and diverse album brimming with ideas, PAINT is proof of a fearless approach from one of Australia’s most revered voices. It followed their #11 ARIA charting debut record of 2015, “When the Storms Would Come”.
Jen Cloher is the culmination of a period of artistic and personal growth in which the artist took her rightful place as the punk-rock figurehead of Melbourne’s famous DIY music scene. The NIDA Graduate is an outspoken advocate for artist rights and the co-founder of the incredible Milk! Records label. Cloher’s fascinating life-story and compelling political voice is enough justification to pay her attention, but it’s the music that will have you returning again and again.
Bob Evans, the ARIA winning alter ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has graced the Australian music scene for more than two decades and has written some of the country’s most beloved songs.
Maddy is a talented young artist from Tasmania, writing songs far beyond her years on a beat-up guitar her mum gave her in high school. The independent artist grew up on Bruny Island where she developed a love of music and songwriting.
Australia’s ‘King and Queen of shit-pop’ or ‘favourite punk sweethearts’ are joining the BBF line-up to showcase ‘their mad dashes of lunatic Aussie charms and pop rock anthems’.
Formidable. Enigmatic. Genre-defying. Fragile. Ballsy. Ambiguous. Raw.
Mojo Juju has been called many things and yet she is forever hard to define. By her own explanation, Mojo has never felt comfortable with being categorised and is increasingly deliberate in avoiding labels and defying genres. As a result, it is only in experiencing her live shows that one can begin to understand the full breadth of this dynamic artist.
