ALWAYS LIVE, Chapter Music and Triple R present

Chapterfest 30

Saturday November 5, 3pm

Northcote Theatre

Since 1992, Chapter Music has championed adventurous and intelligent Australian music, making it one of the longest running independent record labels in the nation. To celebrate their 30th birthday, Always Live, Chapter Music and Triple R are presenting Chapterfest 30, a huge all day party featuring artists from across the label's three decade lifespan.
 The lineup is of course wide, varied and sensational. Melbourne's Heat Beat icons NO ZU return to live performance for the first time since the passing of cherished vocalist Daphne Camf. Revered Sydney songwriter Laura Jean plays an intimate solo set, the day after releasing her brand new album Amateurs. Eccentric pop auteur Gregor and band plays their first Melbourne show since the release of 2020 album Destiny. Assured noir pop auteur Sweet Whirl plays a rare full band set featuring songs from her 2020 modern classic How Much Works. Future rap duo Teether & Kuya Neil play tracks from their celebrated 2021 mixtape GLYPH. Renowned 80s post-punk heroes Essendon Airport make a long awaited return to live performance, with some special guests including the Triffids' "Evil" Graham Lee. Sydney DIY pop icons The Cannanes present songs spanning their near-40 year career. And Hobart's much-loved The Native Cats (featuring Chapter solo artist Chloe Alison Escott and Julian Teakle of 90s Chapter artists The Frustrations) take us into the future with songs from their forthcoming album.

This show is part of ALWAYS LIVE, a new state-wide celebration of contemporary live music supported by the Victorian Government through Visit Victoria.
