Dress up attack is back for 2014, bringing you a day jam packed full of entertainment for the big and little kids inside us all.
Dress-up attack combines the works of local and international musicians with the fun of dressing up and is only two weeks away, tickets selling fast to be part of this mixed music come fun-family-day.
The days festivities are presented by multiple well-known and accomplished artists and musicians, all hosting one or more of the stands for the day.
MINOR WORKS, a new project directed by Percussionist by Bree van Reyk (Synergy Percussion, Ensemble Offspring) sees bands from Stanmore Public and Newtown Public schools combine to form the MINOR WORKS BAND. The talented bunch will perform new compositions from the likes of Jodi Phillis (The Clouds), Marcus Whale (Collarbones), singer/songwriter Elana Stone and composer/sound artist Julian Day.
Dress Up Attack! is proud to promote and foster creative play.
The day also hosts famous bands such as the quintessential 90’s band The Clouds who are returning their awesome harmonies to the live stage for longtime fans and their families. The large hall stage will also host Phil Jamieson’s Woodenspoon rocking out a selection of G-rated Grinspoon classics and newer works; Rufino and the Coconuts, (featuring Sidewinder’s Pip Branson) playing their unique blend of Euro melodies and Jamaican beats to get all ages dancing; and Zoo Boyz, a merry band of very clever animals, will delight the youngest punters of Dress Up Attack! with their fun musical appreciation for nature and our animal friends.
It’s not a music festival without a good bar, so in the afternoon you can mosey on over to the Dad Joke bar, featuring hilarious one liners and those terrible dad jokes from funny guy, dad, musician and local noise legend Matt Downey, as well as local talent with dads invited to get up on stage and showcase their talents.
