Returning for its long-awaited 24th year this November, the Peninsula will welcome the likes of beloved Brooklyn, NY-based Daddy Long Legs, described by Rolling Stone Magazine as “like Chicago blues fired at the moon, played by the demented children of the Pretty Things”, along with Australia’s own blues goddess Mia Dyson on her return from the US.

Cat Empires’ musical maestro Felix Riebl will perform his new album Everyday Amen which is set for release on the eve of the Festival, whilst rapper producer/ multi-instrumentalist Joelistics guarantees new dance floor moves and San Lazaro, a tribe of long-lost Latinos with backgrounds from Chile and Uruguay to Cuba to Catalonia bring the hip shaking Latin vibes.
