Live Music




Acclaimed indie rock band Eliza & The Delusionals are one of the most exciting groups breaking out of the Australian music scene. Led by colourful front woman Eliza Klatt, they have been making waves since their inception in early 2015, with a sound that has been likened to that of Catfish & The Bottlemen and Alex Lahey.

Introducing CLEWS; the fresh new project from sisters Lily and Grace Richardson. The two Mollymook natives were born and raised on the anthemic ballads of the ‘90s. Now based in Sydney, the girls are singing big choruses and writing songs that will make your heart explode.

Maddy is a talented young artist from Tasmania, writing songs far beyond her years on a beat up guitar her mum gave her in high school.

The independent artist grew up on Bruny Island where she developed a love of music and songwriting.
