South Summit Photo

South Summit

The concert will be headlined by Perth indie rockers South Summit. South Summit have returned from their breakout singles ‘River Days’, ‘Runaway’ & ‘Tired of Waiting’ to hit their stride with new track ‘Promise Me’. The band is hitting all kinds of new heights, surmounting over one million all time streams across all platforms. Also busy on the road, South Summit have recently completed their second national tour.

It’s been a big year for South Summit – labelled ‘Ones To Watch in 2022’ (by triple j Unearthed), as well as earning full rotation on Triple J main station. Balancing a memorable blend of psychedelic-indie-rock with hints of reverb & reggae, the band are ready to launch a range of new tracks to eagerly awaiting audiences in 2023.


Supporting band Brightsider brings an upbeat smoothie of Indie RnB, Funk-Soul-Groove and South Western sunshine. Brightsider is warbling wurli and funky drums, slinky bass lines and soulful vocals sliding into the pocket where Winston Surfshirt, Matt Corby and Jamiroquai meet.
Brightsider is a new project ft. Dan White (of former band Blue Child Collective, Chris Musitano (Brass Party), Wayan Biliondana (Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) & Ziggy Atwell (the man!).  They are a must-see and will certainly leave a smile on your face.
