Saturday 2 September


It’s hard to believe that Sunshine Coast brothers Tim and Sam Aitken are still only 18 and 15 years of age. They have spent virtually every weekend of the past six years developing a reputation as the coast’s hardest working buskers. No plugged in, amped up and gigging as a four piece band, SAMETIME (as the band are now known) are impressing a wider audience with their Souled-out Folk and those trademark delicious sibling harmonies. Now signed to Sony/ATV publishing and managed by industry veteran Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson’s Manboomen Management Company, 2017 has a very promising ring to it for these Coastie busker brothers.


Carving her own niche on the music scene, young yet seasoned artist and 2016 QMusic twice nominee and award winner, DOOLIE fronts her band of talented musicians delivering a polished set of strong and percussive alternative-pop songs. Her ability to command a crowd through her soulful, mature tonalites elevates her show to a higher level, impressing audiences with her powerful vocal range. 


With the ocean as a backdrop and the sun as a soundboard, Sunshine Coast 5piece Selahphonic offer a unique brand of electronic-infused indie pop. Their four-on-the-floor beats celebrate analog synths and chimey lead guitar hooks, sending audiences across Australia into a neon mosh ecstasy. Selahphonic offer a unique video sonic experience, interweaving their art as filmmakers with their infectious music to present their growing audience with an exciting live show. 


Since releasing her debut EP in 2014, Fieu has topped Triple J Unearthed charts, gained national radio play (including Triple J), as well as been recognised for her writing in the International Songwriting Contest and QMusic Awards. With a growing CV of support credentials for artists such as Aya, Montaigne and Woodlock, Flue is a fresh face that is swiftly becoming a familiar one.  Fieu has been working closely with Perth based producer Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe, Meg Mac) to evolve her sound. 


Early 2017 saw the release of Fragile Animals debut single 'Signals', receiving commendation as a finalist in the APRA AMCOS Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition and nationwide radio airplay, along with praise from national press. Amid a sound that hints at their brit-rock and indie influences, members Daniel (guitars), Kyle (drums) and Victoria (vocals/bass) have found their sonic common ground, and with songs accumulating nicely the band have already returned to the studio.
