It caps off a huge start to 2016 for Lahey, who has already won a triple j unearthed spot on the Splendour In The Grass lineup for this year and has also taken out the Josh Pyke partnership.

Adelaide-hailing Rin McArdle is fresh from playing at Canadian Music Week – and will bring her globe-trotting set to Sad Grrrls Fest.
