Highasakite: This Norwegian five-piece band will be making their debut trip down under with a show at The Oxford Art Factory. The band has been getting some favourable attention and airtime on Triple J with their single Since Last Wednesday. They combine soaring vocals from lead singer Ingrid Helene Håvik (who has been likened to Bjork) with synth, guitar and drums to create a fun multi-layered folk sound.

Saskwatch: This Melbourne nine-piece have been on a meteoric rise over the past four years starting from busking on the streets and climbing all the way to gracing the stage of one of the worlds biggest music festivals, Glastonbury. The band now brings their trademark horns & dynamic vocals blended with low-fi garage rock to Sydney.

Bertie Blackman: The Triple J fan favourite & ARIA Award-winner has announced a two-show tour kicking off in Sydney to coincide with the release of War Of One – the second single from the upcoming fifth studio album The Dash that is due for release in October. This tour showcases not only the trademark alt-pop sound that made Blackman famous, but also explores a new sound which puts a twist on the stereotypical music associated with pop anthems by putting them through a hazy ‘80s prism.
