Mere Women

Experimenting with dark, dreamy tones and restless energy, Mere Women have been creeping about, playing warehouses, record stores and bar shows since their inception.


Hands down one of the most fierce live acts currently playing in Australia.



The Black Heart Death Cult

From the gloom/doom of the all too sudden demise of The Grand Rapids (early 2015) singer/songwriter Sasha L Smith envisions a brave new dark age of droney bliss in the sonic bazaar.


Droney psych mantras, sonic opiates & space glazed kaleido fuzz jams begin to form like sparkly magic mountain-drops in the re-imagined mind-forrest of The Flower Captain



Flyying Colours

Following the release of their Mindfulness LP, and fresh from tours through Europe, Asia, and Australia - Melbourne's shoegazing legends take to the psych fest stage for the very first time.



The Jim Mitchells

The Jim Mitchells is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and all-round visionary, Jim Mitchell. After cutting his teeth over the West Australian, Mitchell made the move to Sydney where he recorded and produced his debut masterpiece.


Don't miss their their lo-fi hip-jerking set!




Comacozer

COMACOZER is a 3 piece instrumental heavy psych space rock outfit from Sydney, Australia. Formed in 2013 with the vision to come together and formulate tunes of mind bending psych stoner rock to break the listener’s brain and distort their reality.



VS.

Buried Feather

With a sound built on fuzzy drone and swirling keyboards, Buried Feather's live shows have built a loyal following, drawing regular comparison  to Dead Meadow and Spacemen 3.


Their self-titled 2013  debut album was a woozy, atmospheric affair that was well loved all around Australia.  The band toured regularly behind the record, including supports for  Earthless and Endless Boogie.  Their latest offering Mind of The Swarm will be released 10 Feb 2017.



Dreamtime

Hailing from Brisbane's fertile underground music scene, we're thrilled to welcome Dreamtime back to the psych fest stage!

For intrepid psychonauts wishing to hitch a ride, Dreamtime hits all of the sweetest aural spots: heavy tribal grooves; laid back folk-rock; propulsive, full-on fuzztone - all interwoven together with kosmische analogue synth swirls and space oscillations.



Grinding Eyes

Grinding Eyes combine Psychedelic Drone-Rock and ambient Garage-Punk in a dark soundscape.  Psych-Rock, Krautrock, Shoegaze and Garage-Punk can be heard in their unique sound.
The band have been asked to support many different
acts,Jesus and Mary Chain / Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats / Graveyard / Moon Duo / King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
/ Swervedriver / You Am I / Obits - just to name a few!!



Thorax

Less of the paisley and more of the flannel end of the psych spectrum, Thorax have been kickin' around Sydney for a few years.
They play loud, not particularly fast, and should help cover those heavy bases!



Cat Heaven

Featuring members of Mere Women, Hira Hira, Nice Guys and No Art. Cat Heaven deliver intricate post punk between drinks.



White+

White+ is a project as a “hardware electronica band” with Shouwang in charge of vocals and customized keyboards, pedals and loops, while Wang Xu plays drums and a sampler that generates the pulsing and rolling background beats.

Their music flaunts some brilliant sparks as it reflects the duo’s minimalist taste, creating delicate structures surrounded by a field of noise.



Dead Radio

“...a more focused brand of psychedelic rock than we’ve seen of late…taking its cues from shoe-gaze and drone rock, with a vocal delivery reminiscent of The Black Angels.” – Happy MagTV



Unity Floors

“Sydney’s Unity Floors are guided by honesty and enthusiasm… The result of two specific personalities intertwining in a way that’s uniquely enjoyable – through nothing but guitars, drums and spirited moans.” – Max Easton



Belles Will Ring

Belles Will Ring was created through a collective love of New Wave, 60's folk rock, and New York punk. Originating in the eerily serene setting of the Blue Mountains in 2006, the band have toured extensively in Australia with highlights such as supporting Pulp, Ian Brown, and The Church.


In 2017, 6 years from their latest release, Belles Will Ring are back in their best format - on stage. 




Carsick Cars

Carsick Cars is a three-piece rock band from Beijing, China.

In addition to packing clubs in every major city in China, they also toured Europe with Sonic Youth, who described them as their favorite band in China.


Carsick Cars recorded their third album, 3, with famed producer and musician Peter Kember (aka Sonic Boom) of the band Spacemen 3.
