After a successful run of concerts around Australia featuring fantastic homegrown artists, SummerSalt is back for another year to deliver us with the cream of the crop artists at views of the great Australian outdoors. This year live on the shores of Glenelg will be iconic duo Angus & Julia Stone, with support from Meg Mac, Didirri and Seaside!
Guaranteed to live up to the name, you’ll get summer and salt at Glenelg beach on Saturday the 8th of December. SummerSalt incorporates picturesque locations around Australia while showcasing fantastic and internationally acclaimed bands. The emphasis on local community, sustainability, nature and music create an ambience for a concert unlike many others. Gone are the stuffy and packed areas most concerts take place in, with SummerSalt the experience will be in the open air that is conducive with dancing the day away or lounging on the beach with friends.
There is nothing like being transported by Angus & Julia Stone’s beautiful harmonies. They have been making waves in the Australian music scene since their debut album A Book Like This in 2006. Their recent release, Snow, is the first album the siblings have written completely together. With over half a million album sales in Australia alone, No. 1 albums, a swag of ARIAs, multi-platinum certifications and more, they’re still as down to earth as ever. The homegrown indie-folk superstars are currently playing to full houses in the US, following a sold out European and UK tour.
Meg Mac is one of Australia’s most well known voices. She began her career in 2013 and one year on became Triple J’s Unearthed artist of the year. In 2015, the neo soul darling was nominated for two ARIA Awards and the following year, was named as one of Triple J’s Top 5 ‘Unearthed’ discoveries of the last decade. Her star continues to rise as she released her critically acclaimed debut album Low Blowsand tours both at home & internationally.
Melbourne’s Didirri has been mesmerising people all year. He’s headlined two sold out Australian tours, played a swag of festivals, had solid tour supports and a sold out show in London. Emerging from the sparkling waters of beautiful Byron Bay in 2016, four-piece indie band Seaside have been wowing audiences with their sultry dream-pop sound. They recently opened on the main stage at Splendour in the Grass on the second day of the festival and won that privilege as the local music troupe selected by Triple J Unearthed via their recent single Golden Girl.
Doesn’t look like an event we’ll miss, tickets go on sale on the 10th of September at 10.00am local time, you can grab them here.
