6 Pack Radio
It doesn’t get more local to Culburra Beach than 6 Pack Radio. Belting out originals, these guys have a 90’s rock vibe and that give Soundgarden, Nirvana and Pearl Jam a run for their money.

Swing Booty
Swing Booty has been described as The Funky Blues Conglomerate! The Booty is much more than that! Swing Booty is a 7 piece genre mash-up of funk, soul and blues complete with afrobeat and latin undertones. The Booty has been around in various forms for a number of years, united by a shared love of music. Their combined love of all things music can be summed up in their song “(Music) Food of the Soul” so pack your dancing shoes and see you on the dance floor! The Booty.

Hat Fitz and Cara
Hat Fitz and Cara can in no way be mistaken for a dainty duo. They are festival favourites throughout Canada, Australia, Europe, and the UK and it has been said they pack more energy into one song than most have in an entire career. A unique combination of hill-style Gospel blues with old timey flavourings and stripped down to just voices, guitar and vintage drums, Hat Fitz & Cara embellish impeccable rootsy originals with soulful vocals reminiscent of a time once forgotten.

Benji and the Saltwater Sound System
The coconut wireless has relayed the message that Ben Fowler has just returned to his mother country Australia to kick start a new musical project, Benji and the Saltwater Sound System. After a year of village living in remote Solomon Islands this musical excursionist has some new material for Australian audiences, as well as his newly acquired village nickname, Benji.

Claude Hay
Claude Hay has become a permanent fixture on the live circuit and rightly so. He has clocked up four albums since hitting the scene a decade ago and his music has taken him across the country and the world. After coming home after a sold-out UK tour late last year, Claude hunkered down with his new band to put together fresh album for 2018, and first single Still Want More is the first track to see the light of day.

From the raw, roots-driven frequencies of Aotearoa (New Zealand) comes SUB-TRIBE. A six piiece electronic dub-fusion outfit with more groove than your vintage vinyl collection. From chunky skank reggae to blues drenched glitch hop, SUB-TRIBE keeps it heavy on the bass and keeps you light on your feet. SUB-TRIBE exploded onto the Sydney music scene in 2016, supporting NZ dub pioneers Salmonella Dub on their Summer tour of the east coast of Australia.

Moussa Diakite & Wassado
Influential guitarist Moussa Diakité was part of the golden era of Malian music in the 1970s and ‘80s, performing with some of Africa’s best, including Salif Keita and Toumani Diabaté. Since migrating to Australia, he has stamped his mark on the local scene, teaming up with Sydney band Wassado for a dynamic mix of blues, jazz, Cuban and Afro-rock sounds.

Currently of no fixed address, country girls Cat and Leisha are enjoying life on the road, but one thing is evident their sound: their home is on the stage. Whether in a local dive bar or at a national festival, This Way North plays with more passion and energy than a 10-piece band, drumming up a contagious euphoria.

These four delinquents have cut their teeth by hauling their van all over Australia and have recently expanded their overseas profile by touring Europe this year. The lads are known for their explosive live show but have recently been focusing on recording new tunes with Producer/Engineer Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe).
