Welcoming Special Guests:
- Mere Women
Hypnotic, unsettling, intense, angular and dark. Mere Women's brand of unique post punk makes them one of the most exciting acts currently releasing music in Australia. The Sydney-based four piece have taken to the stage with a huge range of International and local pop, rock and punk acts and are well known for their fierce live show. The group have now released three full length LP's and are set to release their fourth album in March 2020.
Their 2017 LP Big Skies explored themes of women's experiences over generations and the simultaneous isolation and confinement felt by many women living in regional communities. The release expresses feelings of being penned in, chained to family responsibilities and unable to break away from tradition. The tracks are haunting, restless and impeccably composed - a claustrophobic journey through wide open spaces.
The album gained national and international accolades and saw the band alter their foundations sonically and emotionally. With strong media support across Australia, Mere Women received Best Record nominations for Sydney Music Arts and Culture (Fbi Radio) and an Australian Music Prize. Amongst a long list of radio stations nationwide it was also played on Triple J, added to rotation on Double J and made album of the week on Fbi Radio. The album was followed by two successful tours of Australia and New Zealand.
- Gravel Pit
Gravel Pit are a Sydney based experimental and electronic music group that combine manipulated live instrumentation with layered samples, synths and glitched vocals. Gravel Pit's sound is a convergence of their love for 80's sci-fi movie scores, punk rock and electronica.
- Enfant Terrible
Enfant Terrible is a collective of friends who began creating art music in Wollongong's northern suburbs. They've since played a bunch of shows around their hometown including the 2017 Yours & Owls Festival and 2019's Farmer & The Owl Festival
- Year6DiscoUp and coming goth rock hailing from Wollongong. Year6Disco, a 5 piece eclectic Goth Disco group formed late 2018 early 2019. Y6D in there short period of time have played more then there fair share of shows and early January 2019 they released there Debut Album "Goth Disco" followed by there soft, delicate single "Dream" released a few months later. "B/W", EP, which is a new exposure into the world of which Y6D live in, exploring new kinds of sounds and emotions within the music and lyrics exploring subjects of drug control, rejections, kinks and the twisted ideals of the music systems. Year6Disco's most recent single "Coming In Hot", which is a much more different approach to song writing then they normally would explore takes place in a real life situation where "Coco" was rejected with the following message, " Message received, the mood is there, But your coming in hot".
"Its like Devo meets... NIN... kinda? But then you have Year6Disco, I don't know" - "6.66 - Local Band Smoke-out"
