AdvertisementUmbrella Festival descends on Adelaide in the dead of winter, so why not put together a line up of some of our favourite new and old bands and celebrate with an opening party.
After a 2 year hiatus, The Dunes are back! Having recently spent some time in the studio working on a follow up to their sold out Self Titled album ( Oak Island/Off The Hip), the band will be bringing their trademark blend of drone, fuzz and reverb to the Crown & Anchor. Reverb drenched vocals, matched with fuzzed out guitar, hypnotic organ and driving bass and drums - the band are reinvigorated and looking forward to showcasing some new material. The stars have aligned. Long live the fuzz.
Honeybeam perform the music of Adelaide based artist, Maya Adamson. Combining soft, charming indie, neo-psychedelia and elements of jazz, Honeybeam are a refreshing immersion into a pleasantly wonky world.
Street Legal are an exciting post-millenial new wave band performing on Kaurna Country, South Australia. A collection of anxiety-ridden dreamers who met through the local scene bonded over a love of David Bowie, Future Islands and LCD Soundsystem.
Their new and distinctive brand of indie rock unites emotive 80's synths with monolithic bass, angular guitars and the unapologetic and political hurly burly of singer Matthew Hayward. Sonically experimental in vision but complete with coordinated jumpsuits and fiery performances, Street Legal write songs of love and late capitalism.
Respect the artists and venue - if you're feeling sick, stay home.
Be respectful to everyone - no dickhead behaviour will be tolerated at our shows.
We acknowledge the Kaurna people as the owners of the land where we live, learn, and work. We respect their culture and elders and acknowledge their sovereignty was never ceded. We recognise that visual arts, music and storytelling have been central to Aboriginal cultures for over 60,000 years. We work to support this lineage
