Headliners

Frente

This year, Frente celebrates the 30th anniversary of the release of their era-defining record ‘Marvin the Album’ with a very special vinyl and digital re-release. From the beer-soaked carpet of the Punters Club in Fitzroy to massive stages the world over, Frente have won hearts and taken no prisoners with singles such as ‘Ordinary Angels’, ‘Labour of Love’ and their acoustic take on New Order’s ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’.

As new generations discover them for the first time and their peers take another nostalgic listen to the songs that they fell in love with, broke up with, and started over with; Frente continues to mean something to so many.
