ARTISTS & PERFORMERS
Saturday April 24th
Acoustic duo, starting 2pm. Indie-folk pop duo Ailish and Natalie; original music plus their own twists on timeless classics and mainstream popular songs.
Seamlessly flow between folk, pop, reggae, and country rock. The band creates playful and positive vibes through clever lyrics, upbeat tempos, and the use of a wide range of instruments.
Brisbane-based four-piece that blends genres of stoner rock, psych, and grunge, with a hint of punk sass. Renowned for their high-energy live shows, and led by frontwoman Roxanne Jeynes, you can expect loud, fuzzed riffs mixed with slabs of groove. ELLA VICE has released a mixed bag of singles, with QOTSA-inspired “Motor Running” coming in at #37 in the 4ZZZ Hottest 100 of 2019. They also recently took out the Mojo Burning band competition to land a coveted slot on the 2022 festival bill. With a new EP soon to be released in early 2021, ELLA VICE is set to bring riffs to a stage near you.
Deaf Poet Society
Hard rock’n’roll for insomniacs that don’t respond to hard drugs. DEAF POET SOCIETY is a Brisbane-based band for people that like their songs catchy as hell, and guitars distorted and loud. Crank it to 11 and show it to Nanna.
Hit N Mizz
Aussie female-fronted rock/punk band for the Mizzconstrued.
Brisbane's next generation of hard rock/metal
A band that excels at live performances. Their brand of original, dirty Aus rock has been rolling audiences since 2003.
Heavy riffs, soaring vocals, and relentless grooves rain over you as Brisbane four-piece band STREET PIECES deliver a hard-hitting rock overload infused with blues and charisma.
Zed Charles and The Royal Artillery
THE ROYAL ARTILLERY shell out a unique brand of heavy psych-blues like no other; ’60s and ’70s guitar fuzz tuned to C-Sharp, with the aggression of ’90s riff-rock and metal. Led by Zed Charles since the band's inception in 2006, Elijah Lee and Storm Mahan of Chassm have recently teamed up, bringing back TRA as a trio. The band has supported the likes of Nick Oliveri (Queens of the Stone Age), John Garcia (Kyuss), Samsara Blues Experiment (GER), Red Fang (USA), Sasquatch (USA), DZ Deathrays, Drunk Mums, Child, Grim Rhythm, The Dead Love, Goon on the Rocks, and Dallas Frasca. Picking up Triple J’s Play for Singles with “Rollin & Tumblin”, “Johnny Cash Invents the Blues”, and, “I Don't Need to Know Your Name”, and appearing at a number of festivals including Agnes Blues and Roots, Devil’s Kitchen, Mojo Burning (7/7!), Wollombi, Dead of Winter, and Mudgee Meltdown. THE ROYAL ARTILLERY is something of a dark horse; expect a full-length album in 2021.
Sunday April 25th
Beats ‘N’ Peaces
BEATS ‘N’ PEACES are a two-piece acoustic act hailing from the Gold Coast. Consisting of two brothers (different mothers, same father) Nathan and Jay, their sound is raw, bluesy, funky, and soulful, like the boys themselves. With a consciously-driven message to the world, the boys think deep and love hard. A blend of skill, power, and grace, BEATS ‘N’ PEACES’ shows are a toe-tapping, head-bopping good time, with a splash of tongue-in-cheek thrown in for good measure. The lads are looking to carve out their own path on the scene with their inspired passion for the arts. Currently working on their debut EP at Greenroom Studios in Mt Tamborine, 2021 is looking to be a big kick-off for them.
Rhys Lee Music
Brisbane-based songwriter/performer/busker, also known as a session musician, who started his musical career at 15. Influenced by the stylistic hallmarks of the blues.
A band of four freaky friends making mystical music in the hills of the Sunshine Coast, in the name of good times and easy living. Ooeee, this is livin’.
Three-piece sonic storm, stricken by blues and grooves, driven by soul-enduring jams and explosive rhythms.
Hailing from sunny Brisbane, SHORES are a feel-good mix of beachy surf-rock with a dose of millennial anxiety churned in. They’ll be kicking off with some gigs in the near future, and touring early next year; keep your ears peeled for their debut single, “Peach Street”.
Home-grown Brisbane rock band, in favour of love.
Indie-rock reggae band, established 2017. As winners of Passport to Airlie (Sunshine Coast), MANTIS EMPIRE blasted their way through high-energy sets across the Airlie Beach Festival of Music. The coastal juggernauts captured punters’ interests in no time at all, with their “Shadows”-style guitar work and more than a hint of Santana thrown in; their music made for perfect festival vibes. Their single, “Summertime”, followed on from their debut album, “Spread the Word”, featuring popular tracks, “Tell Me the Truth”, and, “Red Alert”.
Nick Tart Band
Groundbreaking sound, with a timelessness that gives the illusion of being plucked from any decade. There's exquisite beauty in Nick's voice; wrenching and powerful in full flight, never losing sensitivity and longing. NICK TART BAND exhibits soul rock at its best.
Hailing from Toowoomba, GOLDIE HORN are a heavy rock trio with Jediah Boase on guitar and vocals, igniting audiences with their signature sound and infectious rhythms.
Heavy blues-rock; a hidden treasure in the Australian rock scene. Over the past 15 years, ZED CHARLES has been supplying his vibe across Australia, namely the southeast. His release of acclaimed EPs and radio play has seen him support some of the world's biggest acts, and playing equally large festival stages. His hard-rocking riffs and grasp on the genre make him an act not to miss.
The Wayward Suns
Blues-funk hip-hop fusion. AUS Battle of the Bands winners, 2017 GC Album of the Year nominees (2018), and Coffs Harbour’s Rolling Sets Festival main stage winners (2020). THE WAYWARD SUNS weave together raw, earthy instrumentation, with spirited vocal delivery and a “textured, rhythmic blend of genres” (Happy Magazine, 2018), creating a collage of sounds that'll leave you hanging on every note. Their deep-funk rhythm section is peppered with the melodic counterpoint of sizzling guitar lines and powerful turntable samples, complimented by a rootsy growl that juxtaposes the DJ/MC’s conscious hip-hop lyricism.
