They join the previously announced crop of local power-artists Bad//Dreems, Ngaire, Tired Lion, The Belligerents, E^ST and tonnes more on the 2016 lineup, bringing the total number of acts performing at this year’s festival to a whopping 33.

Organisers have also announced that tickets are once again on track to sell out for the 8th year in a row.

The Hills Are Alive 2016 is set to go down on the rolling hills of Victoria’s South Gippsland over three days and two nights from the 25th to 27th March.
