Queenscliff Music Festival 2016 Lineup Expands Yet Again

The cats behind Queenscliff Music Festival are sparing no expensive for their big 20th birthday bash. Just when you thought this year’s lineup simply couldn’t fit anymore artists, they’ve gone and added another dose of international flavour to the event, which is now well and truly bursting at the seams.

The new batch of artists announced for the event include Eilen Jewell, the so called ‘Queen Of The Minor’; the hurricane of blues that is Canadian outfit Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer; and for the first time ever on our shores, Julien Baker, who’ll unravel dark and brooding indie folk stories right before your eyes.

More storytellers, troubadours and enchanters have also been confirmed including Matt Anderson and fellow Americans Son Little and Steve Poltz, who join the likes of Killing Heidi, Urthboy and Alpine.

The acts on this new lineup announcement join some of the biggest and most time-tested names to concern themselves with blues, folk or rock. Catch the full lineup, below.
