Joining the already outstanding first round of artists, A Festival Called PANAMA has announced its second and final line up of acts set to make their way to Tasmania’s North East next March.
Today, the globe-trotting raconteur C.W. Stoneking and Grammy nominated neo-soul outfit Hiatus Kaiyote joined the bill. Victorian-based Stoneking will bring his unique blend of old timey jazz, calypso and hokum blues to Tassie, while world-dominating Kaiyote will bring their equally eclectic breed of R&B, soul, hip-hop funk to the table. Nigerian band leader Seun Kuti will front an all-star 14-piece big band to headline on the first night, and is sure to cast his afrobeat magic over the crowd for one night only.
Also, a bunch of Australian rising stars have been added to the line-up.
Brian Camp eau
Emma Anglesea & Tash Parker
Scott Carrier’s Home Of The Brave
& Tigerlil’s Cabaret Of Living Wonders
Seun Kuti & Egypt 80
Marlon Williams And The Yarra Benders
For three nights, the glades of the Lone Star Valley will once again transform into a world of stages, nightclubs, speakeasies and food markets. A carefully selected line up of rising stars and celebrated cult figures from around the world will take to the one and only main stage while smaller venues, set in old canvas tents and tiny candlelit bars, will host sideshows of wild jazz, world class cabarets, intimate acoustic sessions, unforgettable story telling and on-point Djs.
After selling out last year – tickets will be available to previous attendees and mailing list members before limited tickets for PANAMA 2016 go on sale December 1st.
