Steve Poltz brings his acclaimed stage antics to Queenscliff Music Festival 2019.
A stack of local and global acts grace the first line-up announcement for this year's Queenscliff Music Festival (QMF).
A sell-out event for the past four years, Queenscliff Music Festival turns 23 in 2019 and presents a diverse line-up of artists from Australia and around the world.
A flock of fan favourites on the international front are coming coast-side in 2019. New Zealand are lending legend Tim Finn, who will bring his adored back catalogue of hits from Split Enz to solo days.
British percussive guitar master Newton Faulkner will notch up another Australian festival performance to his already extensive touring history, and Canada's Juno Award nominated artist and producer Alysha Brilla will showcase her cross-cultural roots on her second visit Down Under.
American-based touring troubadour and cult-followed entertainer Steve Poltz will once again grace our shores with his dynamic and dexterous on-stage antics.
Australian icons performing on the Peninsula this November are a mix of solo sensations and chart-topping bands.
ARIA Award-winning, piano-pop darling Missy Higgins and multi-talented musician, broadcaster and sometime actor Clare Bowditch will be flying the female frontrunners flag, alongside Tamworth-raised, Sydney-based singer-songwriter Charlie Collins and eighteen year-old indie, rock & soul up-and-comer Stevie Jean.
Country music star Troy Cassar-Daley and blistering blues-rocker Ash Grunwald will bring the songbook swag. Spectacular showmen The Cat Empire, folk-rock trio The Waifs, Melbourne's own future soul quartet and (twice Grammy hopefuls!) Hiatus Kaiyote and Americana eight-piece Fools round out the eclectic outfits announced so far, with more to come.
Queenscliff Music Festival is a weekend-long celebration of live music, family-friendly activities, craft beers, fine wines and local produce.
Queenscliff Music Festival is on 22-24 November.
