The Grogans, Juno Mamba and local acts added to Geelong’s The Grass Is Greener festival

The countdown is on for The Grass Is Greener 2022.

In the final weeks leading up to North Queensland festival The Grass Is Greener, the beloved music, food and art festival has added more acts to its Spring lineup, taking a swathe of talented acts to Cairns, Gold Coast, Canberra and Geelong this October.

Joining a range of global superstars including Ty Dolla Sign, YG, ZHU, PNAU, Sticky Fingers, One Four, Maya Jane Coles and so many more, The Grass Is Greener has expanded its lineup, adding up-and-coming local and national artists to its massive offering.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

The Grass Is Greener will once again welcome Wafia to the Cairns edition, the Irani-Syrian born Australian act who released her newest single ‘In The Honey’ this past May. She has been on a hot streak since 2016 amassing over 400 million streams and becoming one of Australia’s most adored voices in pop. One of the most exciting additions will be Geelong’s chilled out indie rock outfit The Grogans who will wave the victorian flag proudly as they settle you in with their relaxed melodies perfect for a sundown sip of beer. They are currently embarking on their sold out Australian tour and will be primed to put on a perfect festival set.

If you are looking for that relaxing euphoric festival feeling, The Grass Is Greener welcomes Juno Mamba whose recently successful single ‘Us’, tip toes the line that Rufus Du Sol has made so famous across the world. If you want an injection of local energy you will also be pleasantly surprised to see Guadion and Reuben being swiftly added to what is already an incredible lineup.

Sharing the stage with international superstars, Ty Dolla Sign, YG, Sticky Fingers & PNAU would be a dream come true for any local act. Noah Devega, Volaris and Dean Turnley will be living that dream as they join for a stacked experience.

Locally, Geelong’s festival specifically will feature newly added acts The Grogans, Volaris, Juno Mamba, Brux, Ethan Maloney, Mordi, and Dean Turnley.

Like any event with huge logistical elements, unforeseen circumstances can force a change and sadly are without Piero Pirupa, Mashd N Kutcher, Zero (UK) and Jordan Burns.

With Visas being approved and the incredible response from punters across Australia we are ready and locked in to see some of the biggest acts in the world strut their stuff in regional locations. Come October 22nd, we will see the amazing combination of headliners grace the stage backed up by Alok, Boo Seeka and Onefour, who will be performing their only four shows for Australia this year.

“This has been incredibly challenging to bring something together in the current market and state we are in. We as a team are so pumped to have this lineup ready to blow the stage up, you don’t want to miss what is behind the gates,” says Handpicked Group.

With a headline lineup completely unique to any festival in the market, The Grass Is Greener 2022 will be one of the most talked about music events this year. Don’t miss it.
