Their music is a modern, twisted take on the neo-soul/urban genre with notable hints of Hiatus Kaiyote, Koi Child and The Internet. Described as "sonic heaven" by Purple Sneakers (2017) and "forward thinking" by Futuremag (2018), the group has forged a signature for themselves through their music and personality.

12:30pm Joe Sewer

Joe Sewer is a Melbourne-based singer-songwriter, carving out rugged guitar-driven lo-fi pop. After years of playing in punk bands “Bad Vision” and “department.”, this is a vehicle for the more pacifying songs that didn’t quite fit their mould.

1:30pm Field Maps

Field Maps is the solo recording project of Melbourne musician Daniel Moss. Since the dissolution of his previous band I a Man, Moss has spent the past few years playing guitar in Melbourne dream pop project Sunbeam Sound Machine, whilst slowly chipping away at music of his own. With a knack for pensive psychedelia and subtle ear worms, Moss has begun to deliver his own brand of lazy guitar pop through singles such as 'Action at a Distance', 'Cassavetes' and 'Somewhere Underground'. Now joined on stage by Nick Sowersby (Sunbeam Sound Machine), Sophie Treloar (Poppongene) and Rhys Grunden (Foreign/National), Field Maps has moved from solo recording project to cohesive live act in its own right. While 2019 has been a quiet year as the members focused on other projects, expect new music from Field Maps in 2020.

L.A. Mood is the solo project of Melbourne based multi-instrumentalist and producer Dave Mudie.

2019’s EP Breakfast At Sassy’s draws from rock moments through the decades, from the swinging 60's, psychedelic 70's and indie-pop of the 00's, and was again recorded in Portland with Hegna. As per the debut, friends from Melbourne's music scene were enlisted into the recording sessions – Ambrose Kenny-Smith (King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard/The Murlocs), James Fleming (Gumboot), Bob Harrow (Immigrant Union), Jess Ribeiro, Bones Sloane (Courtney Barnett), Gus Rigby (Big Scary), and Fabian Hunter (China Beach). Cover art was by Austin, TX artist Mary Streepy. The EP launch was the first time L.A. Mood played with a full band – selling out the Merri Creek Tavern.

3:30pm Feelds

 There is something intriguing around the idea of the unknown. Whether this comes to Feelds as a thirst for exploration or a relentless drive for self-discovery, onward seems to be the only direction. Since releasing a string of self-produced singles in the latter half of 2016, the Melbourne-based project of James Seymour has grown miles forward into a fully-fledged outfit, defined by clever songwriting used to provoke a dynamic soundscape of honest storytelling.

A new level of performance was struck in 2017 with the addition of a live band, allowing the following two singles, ‘Colourblind’ and ‘Crazy Neighbours’ to pave the way for a debut EP release in the early stages of 2018.

The self-produced EP, ‘Hunch’, was independently-released to a sold out hometown crowd in Melbourne, has gained national radio success, received over 1.25 Million streams on Spotify, and allowed Feelds to tour across the country in support of the likes of Didirri, Hayden Calnin, Fan Girl & BATTS.

Feelds


4:30pm Jaguar Jonze

Life-changing serendipity happens only to a chosen few, and that moment took musician-artist Denna Lynch by surprise, while playing an Iggy Pop tribute night in her native Brisbane. After witnessing the unhinged performance of a guy emulating Iggy, she transformed into a bona-fine banshee, earning the nickname-turned-stage name Jaguar Jonze

Jaguar Jonze's latest single, the exquisite ethereal-pop "Beijing Baby," is technically about those who hide behind their privilege, but also nods to Deena's multicultural root: Mom is Taiwanese, and Dad is Australian.

"Beijing Baby" will appear on Jaguar Jonze's debut EP on Network Records.  Previous to that, she's released "You Got Left Behind," a longing Western-pop track, that left lingering impressions on the blogger circuit.

Jaguar Jonze


5:30pm Cool Sounds

7:30pm Kinder

You can’t fake the kind of effortless cool that Kinder seem to radiate. Whether that’s through their dancefloor-slaying sets or their effortless sense of style, sisters Savannah and Briony Osei make an impact that leaves a lasting impression.

Growing up in Maitland in NSW, the sisters come from a strong musical pedigree. Their mother, herself a singer, started them on an aural diet of her classic vinyl from an early age, inspiring Savannah to pick up both piano and guitar and both sisters to begin writing music before they hit their teens. Once they both turned 18, Savannah and Briony pursued their interest in electronic music and began DJing for friends’ birthday parties and in local clubs.

Their diverse range of musical influences, from Lorde to The Cure, Fleetwood Mac to Peking Duk, is clear in their track selection, dabbling in Brazilian Bass and G- House– these ladies can play from sunset to sunrise and never have a dancefloor empty. This fact has clearly not gone unnoticed, and Kinder have recently enjoyed amazing feedback on their Triple J Friday Mix and played at a number of festivals, including: Splendour in the Grass, Groovin’ The Moo, This That and Mountain Sounds.

In addition to their musical prowess, Kinder have built many relationships in the fashion scene as people look to harness their incredible style and fashion prowess. This has seen them recently work with General Pants Co, Nike, Tree of Life and Showpo.
