Some of Australia’s best rock is hitting the Gold Coast this January, following the success of the inaugural run of Under the Southern Stars shows. This summer will see ARIA Hall of Famers Hoodoo Gurus join forces with rock royalty You Am I as well as Eskimo Joe, The Superjesus, British India, The Getaway Plan and Scott Darlow for one hell of a summer soiree in Southport.
For over three decades the Hoodoo Gurus have consistently been one of the most inventive, lyrically smart and goddamn exciting rock’n’roll bands Australia has ever produced. Along the way they’ve influenced an entire generation of bands including the likes of You Am I, so it’s quite fitting they share a bill this January. Hoodoo Gurus, by any measure, are one of Australia’s greatest, best loved and most enduring rock bands.
You Am I are without doubt one of Australia’s all-time essential rock ‘n’ roll bands. More than two decades on from their first album release, You Am I have not only had one of the longest and most successful recording careers in Australia, but are also one of our most loved live bands. They have won a total of Ten ARIA Awards including Album of the Year, Best Group, and Best Independent Release.
The one-day festival takes place on Saturday 19 January at Broadwater Parklands and tickets are on sale now. And if that’s not enough of a lineup for ya, come 2 October, there’ll be one more special guest added to the bill.
