There’s Something About QMF

You thought following the announcements of artists including The Church, Dan Sultan, Hayward Williams, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Kasey Chambers and Skunkhour that 2014’s Queenscliff Music Festival couldn’t get any bigger, didn’t you? You poor, naïve fools. But, because you’re good-looking we’ll cut you some slack. The festival has made further announcements including some fantastic artists that make up the Telstra Road to Discovery Showcase. Last year’s winners Helen Shanahan and Christopher Coleman (who will headline the showcase with his outfit the Christopher Coleman Collective) will perform, along with Andrew Redford, Angie McMahon, Hayden Calnin and Kelly Menhennett. Oh yeah, you also have Charles Jenkins, WILSN, Aluka, The Yearlings and Matt Katsis (the 2013 QMF Busking Competition winner), along with local Geelong region acts Murdena, Yirrmal & the Yolngu Boys, Residual, The Kite Machine, Bec Goring and the Elwood Winters, Áine Tyrrell, Sagamore, Jordan Riddle, Alister Turrill, Max Rudd Band, Georgia Rodgers and Tides of Welcome. Oh yeah again, you also have MC Colin Lane (Lano and Woodley), Claire Hooper (Good News Week), Dave Thornton (FOX FM) and Rod Quantock making up the Comedy Showcase.
