In a statement, organisers said that when choosing a lineup to send off “the dumbest year we have lived through”, they picked acts from around Australia who had, against all odds, killed it this year.
That’s certainly quite true – Lahey made it on to the bloody THPS soundtrack, released surprise EP Between the Kitchen and the Living Room, and shared Christmas single ‘Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)’ late last month. Beddy Rays also had a pretty good one despite everything, releasing the excellent singles ‘Better Weather’ and ‘Sobercoaster’.
Meanwhile, Newcastle’s RAAVE TAPES shared a pair of bangers themselves – ‘Red Flag’ and ‘Habitual’ – and Cry Club released their much-anticipated debut album God I’m Such a Mess.
If you’re keen to see out this year with a stellar lineup of artists from around the country, first release tickets for the show are available now.
