Set to take over Adelaide’s East End (28 July), Scouted will showcase South Australia’s most prominent unsigned musical talents (across an array of stages) and is set to coincide with the AIR Awards and their inaugural Indie-Con Australia two-day music industry conference, also to be held in Adelaide (27-28 July).
The new additions include one of Australia’s brightest indie rockers Timberwolf; 23-year-old South Sudanese hip hop poet DyspOra; the introspective pop of Rin McArdle; the '90s grunge of Nakatomi’s electro-pop; the heartbreaking and ambient melodies of Maggie Rutjens; electronic aesthetic of Hunt; and the combination of alt soul, blues and R&B from Ollie English.
Music SA General Manager Lisa Bishop said these new additions to the Scouted programme have resulted in a well-rounded highlight reel with some of South Australia’s best unsigned talents.
“These additions to the Scouted line-up offer a snapshot of Adelaide’s thriving and diverse music scene. It’s exciting to present these artists in front of the Australian music industry and give the inaugural AIR Awards an insight into what South Australia has to offer,” Ms Bishop says.
Scouted takes place Friday 28 July at various locations in Adelaide's East End (5-10pm).
