Summer music festival Under the Southern Stars will be returning in 2019 with a huge line up packed full of the best of Australian rock. After the success of the Festival’s 2018 debut, Under the Southern Stars is expanding into 5 new coastal locations as it continues to deliver music lovers the ultimate outdoor live music festival in a quintessential Aussie summer setting. Under the Southern Stars 2018 was a real high light of our 2017/18 festival season (Check out our 2018 gallery here) and with it’s cracking new line up 2019 is set to raise the bar higher again.

This year’s Under the Southern Stars line up will be headlined by legendary Aussie Rockers Hoodoo Gurus along with Australian rock royalty You Am I.  Also on this killer bill is Eskimo Joe, The Superjesus, British India, The Getaway Plan and Scott Darlow.

For over three decades the Hoodoo Gurus have consistently been one of the most inventive, lyrically smart and goddamn exciting rock’n’roll bands Australia has ever produced.

Hoodoo Gurus

You Am I are without a doubt one of Australia’s all-time essential rock n roll bands.  More than two decades on from their first album release, You Am I have not only had one of the longest and most successful recording careers in Australia but are also one of our most loved live bands.  They have won a total of Ten ARIA Awards including Album of the Year, Best Group, and Best Independent Release.

 

You Am I

Iconic indie legends, *Eskimo Joe, has become one of Australia’s biggest bands. They have successfully straddled mainstream commercial success while managing to keep their Alternative Music roots secure. With 5 studio albums under their belts and sales exceeding 750,000 in Australia alone, the band has seen 3 of those albums debut at No. 1 on the ARIA charts.

*Eskimo Joe will not be playing at the Queensland events, but Queensland fans stay tuned for a chart-topping special guest to be announced on 2nd October

The Superjesus is one of Australia’s most successful and respected rock bands who remain a stable on Aussie rock radio.   They have expertly managed to bridge the gap between their instantly recognisable late 90’s hits and their current melodic rock sound – bringing together new fans and those who’ve been loyal for 20 years.

Since British India, first appeared on the live scene, critical interest swept over the band and Triple J took them under their wings.  They’ve conquered the stage, played to an array of sold out shows and music festivals galore.

The Getaway Plan are an Alternative-Rock band from Melbourne, Australia who formed in December 2004. Their debut album ‘Other Voices, Other Rooms’ catapulted them to the forefront of Aussie hard rock and post-hardcore scene. 

When imagining what real Aussie Indigenous rock looks like,  Scott Darlow should be what comes to mind.  For more than ten years, Darlow has been one of the country’s hardest working and most successful independent artists.  Combining incredible unique vocal ability with hooky guitar-driven rock with the distinct sounds of the didgeridoo thrown in, Darlow is the real deal.
