Kicking off in Scarborough on August 12, the run of shows will continue on to Fremantle, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Bellingen, Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne and Adelaide, before wrapping up in Hobart on September 10.



HOLE

I discovered Hole at the same time as Nirvana, when I was 13-14. I had the necessary grunge phase that everybody should experience, but I never truly got out of this one. Hole are one of the most underrated bands ever and deserve way more credit as pioneers of the grunge scene. Their 1998 album “Celebrity Skin” is one of my favourite albums, it reminds me of 10 Things I Hate About You and being an angsty teenager.

ARCTIC MONKEYS

Arctic Monkeys are my favourite band of all time - I would genuinely give my life for those boys and their music has changed my life in more ways than I can ever know. Their first two albums are my favourites and I think every single song on them is flawless - I could listen to them every day and never get bored. Brit rock is alive and thriving.

WAAX

WAAX are one of those bands that you really can’t help but love - I remember hearing them in high school and being instantly obsessed. We played with them for the first time in 2019 and were blown away by how lovely and welcoming they were. Since then we have seen them all over the country including one boozy airport lounge New Years Eve experience in Tasmania. We are constantly inspired by them and are so lucky to call them friends.

VIAGRA BOYS

These Swedish kings are so epic I can hardly believe it. I’ve never heard anything quite like them, and I was surprised at how quickly I was down the rabbit hole. Their first album “Street Worms” was played almost daily by me in 2019, and it always makes me so happy when I hear any of their music. Even their live sessions and music videos bring a particular energy that I haven’t seen from any other bands, I love it so much.

WET LEG

Wet Leg have burst into the music scene like a bomb of fun and we couldn’t be happier about it. I only heard of them recently but there isn’t one song that I don’t adore. Their debut self-titled album is absolutely perfect, every song is amazing and they’re really killing it. We’re praying to the rock gods that we’ll be able to share a stage with them one of these days.
