Queenscliff Music Festival Expands 2023 Lineup

Victoria’s Queenscliff Music Festival has added a fistful of more artists to its 2023 lineup, led by UK folk-punk favourite Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls. Turner announced a wider Australian tour at the start of July, which effectively outed him as an additional headliner of the Queenscliff festival as the announcement included the event date.

Elsewhere, Perth singer Katy Steele will be bringing her latest album Big Star to the stage, and First Nations pop outfit The Merindas will also be heading along. Other additions include Melbourne’s Danika, country act Georgia State Line, indie rock crew Mood Spill, and Frank Sultanas Blues Band.
