We cheekily like to refer to the MMF line-up as ‘the best musos you’ve never heard of’. But let’s be fair, while Gomez vocalist Ben Ottewell and ‘Riverina Kid’ William Crighton may not be household names, they are certainly celebrated musicians.

Joining them at this year’s festival will be Mike Love (no, not the Beach Boy) and return guests Lior and Bobby Alu.

Gabriella Cohen. Photo supplied

Aussie chanteuses Gabriella Cohen (Brisbane) and Caiti Baker (Darwin) will bring some fresh faces to the mix, while the pure soul experience of Zimbabwean born Thando will have you heading straight to the dance floor.

Mullum Music Festival 2018 will also feature the ecstatic pulses and furious mash ups of Sydney based quintet Tangents, the nu-soul and jazz of Ladyslug, some funky fem-hop from eight-piece soul queens The Mamas, and the insane horniness of Sydney’s New Orleans style big brass band Low Down Riders.

Rounding out the line-up is a now-long list, including: The Cartridge Family, Georgia Fields, Buddy (US), Dao Of Dylan, Old Man River, Uncomfortable Science, The Wanderers, Tullara, Naga Buah, Cecilia Brandolini and Brekky Boy.

On top of that, MMF have already announced: Bombino (AFR|NGR), Mad Professor (GUYANA), Jah9 (JAM), Gordi (AU), Osaka Monaurail (JPN), Kaiit (PNG|AU), Jordie Lane (AU), Saint Sister (IRE), Hat Fitz & Cara (AU and The Turner Brown Band (US|AU).

So what are you waiting for? Time to get booking.
