Building on the display of already impressive local talent, Queenscliff Music Festival, which will be celebrating its 21st birthday this year, has just dropped its third line-up, which is sure to sweeten the deal for anyone still contemplating buying a ticket.
Joining Australian music legends Bernard Fanning, The Temper Trap, Xavier Rudd and indigenous veteran music troupe Yothu Yindi is a wide array of artists across multiple genres.
NYC native Gabriel Garzon-Montano of Drake-sampling fame will display his funky laidback tunes on the big stage, which straddle the border between soul, roots, and loungey folk. Also hailing from New York are the subway buskers turned viral street jazz group Too Many Zooz, whose energetic live shows will get you dancing.
Irish Mythen is a Canadian based Irish singer-songwriter whose acoustic sounds are embellished with good humour and a clever ear for a good melody. Joining is fellow Canadian artist Lindi Ortega, a country music enterprise whose solid brand of country twang will be one to watch following a fresh support slot on Carrie Underwood‘s latest tour.
The East Pointers are an ensemble of string players and singers whose Roots music earned them the famous Juno Prize. Ron Artis is bringing his band The Truth along with him to perform a show that will include some improvised songs right on the spot. Finally featuring is the smokey voiced American Travis Bowlin, perfect for the seaside vibe with his own brand of Roots Music.
The festival kicks off over the weekend commencing on the 24th of November.
