For many decades people have assumed that “there’s something in the water” – a justification for the continuous stream of musical talent that pours out of our fair state. Being prouder than parents at a school assembly, Southbound is thrilled to shine the spotlight on the incredible home grown talent that will be showcased this December.
Featuring more local artists than ever before in the festival’s 12 year history, we’ve decided to celebrate by announcing the bucketloads of talented sandgropers before releasing the full line up. Southbound is proudly WA owned and operated and we can’t think of a better way to rejoice in this fact by featuring such great home grown talent.
Taking to the stage at Southbound 2016 will be;
San Cisco // Slumberjack // Tired Lion // Koi Child // HWLS // Mosquito Coast // Kucka // Lilt // Mathas // Hideous Sun Demon // Grrl Pal // Elk Road // Time Pilot
We spoke to a few of our brilliant artists and asked them what playing Southbound means to them. Follow this link to see for yourself!
These acts range from emerging artists to those who’ve played to tens of thousands on Australian and international festival stages including Slumberjack, Tired Lion and Kučka who’ve just played to massive crowds at Splendour in the Grass.
