Saturday March 2 2019, McCabe Park Wollongong
The Farmer & The Owl Festival debuts this March, at its new home among the steel-lined laneways and lush urban parklands of McCabe Park in the heart of Wollongong, lined with spacious lots and secluded post-industrial alcoves for music consumption and discovery!
Lovingly curated by the Farmer and The Owl label family of Hockey Dad, Totally Unicorn, The Pinheads, TEES and Tropical Strength, it was always going to dish up an eclectic line up of insanely talented artists.
These New South Whales bring a crisp brand of power and songwriting to post-punk that pools a good dose of punk, garage, metal, new wave and goth in one mangled brand of punk. The combination of their signature nipple tape, obscene strobes lights, smoke machine and deeply pitch bent vocals, create sonic hell-scapes!
A sonic partnering of saxophonist Kirsty Tickle and percussionist Jonathan Boulet, Party Dozen is a project loosely based around improvisation. Conceived in Berlin, the two Sydneysiders, deliver a set of musical art with a taste that endures.
Clea is a true artisan who strives for control and ownership in all aspects of her art, be it photography, film, fashion, graphic design, art directors or her stunning alternative ethereal pop-folk songs. Music is the Brisbane local’s deepest passion, and thanks to her velvet voice, what has helped her make her mark over the past three years.
Unabashed dorks Sweater Curse started captivating Brisbane’s local scene with their charm and evocative, jangly melodies. Writing songs that have been described as ‘slightly depressing but still groovy’ and ‘introspective, slightly sparkly indie-rock’ the band carved out a niche for themselves with a throwback feel.
Sydney siders Sunscreen are ready to deliver ultimate UV protection for the emotions and soul. Spearheaded by Alex’s instantly catchy guitar riffs, Sunscreen's guitar-pop places dreamy Cocteau Twins-esque vocal melodies over driving post-punk-inspired beats.
Farmer & The Owl is the perfect way to usher in the cool change of Autumn, with 3500 other music fans, some of your favourite artists, and a bunch you are about to discover who will become just that!
Stay tuned for more acts to be announce in the coming months.
