Since they first blessed our summers with 2009’s irrepressibly catchy singalong anthem, Home, California’s Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros have managed to chart a somewhat unexpected trajectory for themselves, crafting a unique indie folk niche that only they can fill.
In addition to consistently unveiling sonically inventive and musically one-of-a-kind full-length efforts, the band have also developed a reputation as a must-see live act, with their songs of love and spirituality manifesting themselves in elaborate and highly communal stage performances.
The band made a lot of Aussie fans very happy when they were announced as one of the acts set for the incredible lineup of Byron Bay Bluesfest 2014, sending them further into a tailspin with the news that they will play headline shows at The Palace in Melbourne and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre.

Entries close 5:00pm AEDT this Sunday, 23rd March 2014. Please note, the Melbourne show on Tuesday, 15th April at the Palace Theatre is an 18+ event, and best of luck!
