This event has passed and sales are now closed
It's the funk-off fabulous opening night of The Garden Party. Get here and get down with The Bamboos and more.
Axolotl create cinematic, lush and layered sounds. Paired with lyrical songwriting, Axolotl create sweeping yet delicate tunes that creep up on you.
Brous is defined by the extraordinarily expressive vocals of Sophia Brous and is supported by a band of formidable musicians. Equal part exotica diva and pop auteur, Brous weaves together a mesmerising palette of 60s soundtrack fetishism, shimmering psychedelia and industrial lounge, with nods to pop traditions stretching from Japan to Brazil to Eastern Europe - stunning melodies all crowned by Brous' extraordinarily powerful voice.
What better way to begin a month of Summer parties than with The Bamboos? Lance Ferguson and his nine piece outfit The Bamboos have come a long way since forming in 2001 with their own blend of raw funk born of the 60s and early 70s. Now toasted as one of the greatest funk and soul bands of our time, they are the perfect weekend kick-starter.
"They are about as good as it gets... " - Mark Lamarr BBC Radio 2 (U.K)

ABOUT THE GARDEN PARTY
This summer, a vacant lot in Southbank becomes your backyard - that is, if your backyard is home to some of the biggest names in Australian and international indie, electro and soul music. Astroturf and street art, deckchairs and DJs, flowers and funk. This is the place to spend warm summer evenings.
The Garden Party is the outdoor music festival with a difference. Join us in the Garden for drinks, great food and the simple pleasure of hearing and seeing your great acts on stage. It happens on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 25 January to 17 February.
