Without any doubt, one of Australia’s favourite live bands, Spiderbait was the first Australian band to top Triple J’s Hottest 100 with ’Buy Me A Pony’. They’ve collected numerous ARIAs and they have just completed the hardest rocking and most successful tours of their career. The set is packed with hits, many as you’ve never heard them before. One of the great live power trios of all time.
Joining Spiderbait will be special guests The Superjesus who are celebrating 20 years since the release of their platinum debut album Sumo. Sarah McLeod, one of the most dynamic and charismatic frontwomen in Australian rock and fellow founding band member Stuart Rudd on bass, have floored audiences coast to coast as they return to their raw roots performing their greatest hits during extraordinary live shows. This will be a show fans of The Superjesus should not miss.
A live show by Melbourne’s Modern Rock monsters Mammal is just pure energy from the gut. The MML enigma stems from four unique, driven and charismatic artists. Ezekiel Ox spits out heartfelt lyrics against Pete Williamson’s incendiary guitar riffs over the thunderous rhythms of bassist Nick Adams and drummer Zane Rosanoski. Mammal have slaughtered audiences across Australia, UK and Europe and are back to reclaim the crown of Australia’s most exciting live band - a must see!
Joining the lineup this year is Osaka Punch. Hailing from Brisbane, Osaka Punch are forging a reputation as one of Australia's most wildly entertaining live acts. The group's distinctive fusion of catchy grooves, jazz chops and a rock ethos sets them apart from most heavy bands, while introducing humour and satire in an otherwise very serious music scene.
Completing this year’s line-up is Sydney’s four piece RACKETT whose slamming loud experimental punk-pop has critics and fans raving - “Rackett brought the energy to the crowd and slayed it”. “High energy and addictive, I can’t wait to see these vivacious girls live again!” “Noise is their number one trade and they are very, very good at it.” They’re also great fun so be there early!.
