DZ Deathrays

DZ Deathrays have come a long way from the first house party gig that they formed for. In the past few years, the ARIA Award winning, indie/thrash two-piece has toured overseas relentlessly, winning loyal fans the world over with their roof-lifting live show, debut album ‘Bloodstreams’ and their 2014 release ‘Black Rat’. Here at home in Australia, they’ve done stadium shows with The Foo Fighters, as well as multiple other support tours, sold-out headline shows and festivals such as Splendour in the Grass, Groovin’ The Moo and Falls Festival. The professional face-melters from Brisbane have toured the US, UK, Europe, Asia and even Iceland.

The Bennies

With fast hi-hats, bouncing bass lines, face melting leads, filthy synth sounds and surreal delayed vocals, The Bennies craft witty, memorable punk songs, and deliver them with a balls out attitude. Over the past three years the band have performed non-stop, playing over 300 shows across Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia. And its been through this relentless touring, that The Bennies have carved a reputation as one of the country's most exciting live acts.

Lunatics on Pogosticks

Lunatics on Pogosticks are a three-piece punk band form Lennox Head. With fast and catchy tunes they have had attention from Triple J, being made the Triple J high school winners in 2013. They have also had their first single ‘Less then Sober’ on high rotation on Triple J in 2014. With influences such as Sonic Youth and Dinosaur, Jr Lunatics on Pogosticks tap into a more melodic punk sound.
