Every year Secret Sounds throw a pre-party at The Northern in Byron Bay that makes you wake up regretting going so hard on day zero, and this year won’t be any exception! They’ve just released the lineup and ticket info for avid fans.
Finally The Avalanches (pictured) are back! Before premiering their highly anticipated live show at Splendour in the Grass, fans will be treated to a sneak preview at the Byron Bay Official SITG Pre-party. The Avalanches’ sophomore album Wildflower has arrived and the band have well and truly come good on their promise of a worthy follow-up to their debut Since I Left You, which is (let’s be honest) one of the most revered and important albums of all-time.
Let’s get one thing straight, The Kills are the most fearless forward-thinking duo in rock n roll, period. Bristling with tension, anxiety, sex, and unstudied cool, their pre-party set will be the first time in five years since Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart graced Australian fans with their presence.
Making the trip east to party is Perth trio Methyl Ethel, the uninhibited alt-pop project from musician Jake Webb. Methyl Ethel have blossomed into one of the most critically revered and publicly embraced acts out of Australia in recent times.
We challenge you to find a more talented artist in the country than Harts. The master of vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and production was anointed by the late, great Prince himself as an artist in his own image, and with whom he spent time jamming with at his Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis.
On DJ duties will be Melbourne duo Kllo, with their dreamy brand of electro-pop. The duo’s been playing a tonne of sold out Australian shows and a string of local and international festival slots including Dark Mofo, The Great Escape and Primavera Sound.
