Headliner Icehouse was formed by Iva Davies and is one of those bands that have managed to transcend age groups with a career spanning 40 years. Generations of music lovers have been brought up with hits such as Crazy, Electric Blue, We Can Get Together, Great Southern Land, Hey Little Girl and Man Of Colours to name a few, with the band selling over three million albums locally, more than nine million internationally and achieved 28 platinum album sales in Australasia. Incredibly, the band has had eight Top 10 albums and more than 30 Top 40 singles.

Icehouse was due to perform in Victoria this year when the show was suddenly cancelled due to the states ongoing lockdowns, so this upcoming performance is one that should not be missed – especially with the talented support acts they’ve secured.

Presented by concert maestros Zaccaria Concerts & Touring, By The C is an epic celebration of live music, food and community on world-famous beachside locations and has been an Aussie favourite since its inception, delivering legends of the music world to some of the most scenic locations around the country.

Taking to Torquay, this beachside festival event is set to be a great day out with live music and a vibrant setting. It’s the perfect place to bask in the sun and ocean breeze while kicking back or dancing the day and night away to some of Australia’s best live music.

Alongside the homegrown Australian talent will be performing live music in this beachside location with pop-up bars, food trucks, and a selection of refreshing beverages perfect for a day in the sunshine against a beautiful backdrop that makes you glad and proud to be an Aussie.
