The annual indie pilgrimage of new music discovery, the ninth instalment of Mountain Goat Valley Crawl returns to Brisbane in 2024.Slated to take over eight Fortitude Valley venues on 10 February, and with festival entry absolutely free, there's no reason not to unearth a swag of talent to overload your next playlist party.
Mountain Goat Valley Crawl alumni include Polish Club, WAAX, Tia Gostelow, Mallrat, Kwame, Cloe Terare, and The Terrys, so it's highly likely you'll spend quality time with some of Australia's next big indie acts.
With 40 bands-artists scheduled to perform in 2024, the line-up is co-headlined by a trio of acts already making waves at a national level.
Punk act These New South Whales (who were recently nominated for Best Hard Rock / Heavy album at 2023 ARIA Awards), indie pop-soul singer-songwriter Mia Wray (whose 2023 single 'Monster Brain' has racked up two-million-plus Spotify streams) and indie rockers Peach Fur (fresh from their headline national tour supporting debut album 'Earth Radio') are the festival's 2024 highlight acts.
"PSYCHED FOR THIS BRISBANE!" proclaim These New South Whales.
