Tell us all a story about the thief in the night. We’ve heard enough about the goddamn joker.

Why: If you’ve never heard of them before…of course you haven’t.
9) Third Space ‘Pattern of Spring’ EP Launch
What: Pure Space is proud to be transmitting a special night of twisted electronics and pure sensory discovery to celebrate the release of Third Space’s new EP ‘Pattern of Spring’.

7) Morten Granau Warehouse Party
What: Morten is more then just an artist, his music goes through the heart and gives a sense of hope, belonging & love. His journey is very special in the music industry as his music talks to you with the 432 tones. Releasing some incredible new music since he last played in Australia nearly 2 years ago!
Why: You will not be offended. Nor inspired.
6) Young Franco: Late Show
What: Brisbane’s number one charmer Young Franco will be bringing his infectious grooves across Australia this July in headline format for the first time since 2018. Astral People and Handsome Tours are thrilled to welcome one of Australia’s most exciting producers back to the stage for some dance-inducing beats set to keep you warm this winter.
Why: “Infectious grooves”? This promo material must’ve been written in early 2020.
5) Hiatus Kaiyote: Live
What: Melbourne-based, worldwide-beloved, twice-Grammy-nominated Hiatus Kaiyote returns in 2021 with their new album Mood Valiant and to celebrate, the band are going on tour. Their music defies categorization. Some called it “neo-soul,” others “future soul”; the band calls it, simply, wondercore. Their music found fans in hip-hop, sampled on songs by The Carters (Beyonce & Jay-Z), Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, Chance The Rapper, and Drake—with whom Nai Palm collaborated on his Scorpion album; and in jazz, when Robert Glasper invited the band to appear on his album of Miles Davis remakes, Everything’s Beautiful.
Why: Others call it “inoffensive filler”.
4) Witchskull, Holy Serpent and ISUA: Live
What: Witchskull, Holy Serpent and ISUA invite you to an evening of aural brutality. Experience Australia’s finest exponents of Doom and Metal. If you missed them on their previous visits, now is the time to catch what has been described as ‘a blistering, visceral, aural assault, that simply needs to be seen LIVE to be truly appreciated’.
Why: For those who’ve somehow not experienced enough aural brutality in the last eighteen months of ScoMo’s government.
3) PRIVATE FUNCTION: Live
What: Finally back on the road for a full-scale national tour, Melbourne punk-rockers Private Function are returning to your town for a night of mayhem and chaos. Coming hot off the back of last year’s ARIA top 10 album Whose Line Is It Anyway, Private Function are back in full-force with unrelenting rock ’n roll power.
Why: Punk is not dead, but it is contextually irrelevant. And 2021 what is contextually irrelevant may never die.
2) Wolfmother: Live
What: Having spent the majority of their career touring & selling out theatres, stadiums & festivals throughout the world including North & South America, Europe, the UK & Scandinavia, hard rock band Wolfmother announce a return to live stages this June – their first major headline shows since being grounded by the curse of Covid!
Why: They are…still alive.
1) Full Tilt
What: Uniting from across the nation is a who’s who of the Australian Metal, Punk and Rock spectrums, spearheaded by ever evolving metalcore luminaries and Aria Award winners Northlane. Joining them is a cavalcade of the best hard hitters in the land including Hands Like Houses, In Hearts Wake, Frenzal Rhomb, Thy Art Is Murder, Luca Brasi, Slowly Slowly, Make Them Suffer, Press Club, Alpha Wolf, Thornhill, Yours Truly, The Bennies and Drown This City. Along with market stalls, there will be a huge variety of vegetarian, vegan and meat food trucks and Kickass DJ’s spinning tunes between the best live bands in the Nation. This is going to be one epic day under the big tops.
Why: CRASH THE SYSTEM MOTHERF****ER with some playfully zesty gourmet tofu.
