It’s a good day for music fans!
The line up gets bigger as the 2019 Queenscliff Music Festival releases its next round of acts. Queenscliff Music Festival’s second soulful serving of sound for 2019 includes Kent Burnside (USA), Mojo Juju, Nano Stern (CHL), Remi, Ross Wilson, Joe Pug (USA), Ian Noe (USA).
Mojo Juju embodies a space between expectations as an unapologetic and proud voice for the myriad of identities that shape the Australian landscape. Hip-hop artist Remi similarly delivers dynamic and honest observations of Australian life through his semi tongue-in-cheek braggadocios style. Acute perception also accompanies Nano Stern (CHL) who is praised as “the best young Chilean songwriter of his generation,” by Joan Baez.
It wouldn’t be QMF without a bed-rock of blues, roots, and rock ‘n’ roll. As the grandson of R.L Burnside Kent Burnside’s (USA) performs bare-boned blues filled with grit and groove. From Daddy Cool to Mondo Rock and as a solo artist with no less than 26 ARIA Top 40 hits to his credit as a singer, songwriter and producer, Ross Wilson is one of Australia’s most awarded, respected and well-known artists. Joe Pug’s (USA) introspective insight into the human condition provides a respite accompanied by a range of folk and country compadres. Karen Lee Andrews is hitting new strides with a style that described as Oceanic Blues.
They join the already announced artists Allensworth (USA), Alysha Brilla (CAN), Amaru Tribe, Ash Grunwald, Brekky Boy, The Cat Empire, Charlie Collins, Claire Anne Taylor, Clare Bowditch, The Delta Riggs, Dubarray, Fools, Hiatus Kaiyote, Merpire, Missy Higgins, Newton Faulkner (UK), Paul McDermott & Gatesy, Steve Poltz (USA), Stevie Jean, Tim Finn (NZ), Troy Cassar-Daley, The Waifs.
The pristine beauty of the Bellarine is accompanied by the best and eclectic live music, craft beers, fine wines, and local produce and family-friendly activities. Queenscliff continues their war on waste in 2019, following an incredible diversion of 90.07% of rubbish which was then recycled into picnic tables and benches. Attendees of this year’s festival will most likely be wining and dining on the results of this great initiative.
The 23rd Queenscliff Music Festival will run from 22nd – 24th November 2019.
