Festival newcomers hold lots of surprises including the swinging speakeasy charm of Melbourne outfit Clairy Browne and The Bangin’ Rackettes, the soulful cool of Melbourne’s Electric Empire, the indie sounds of Gossling and Winter People, the roots music of Mia Dyson, Joe Robinson, Liz Stringer and Hat Fitz & Cara Robinson and much more…
