HEADLINE: SHONEN KNIFE
Since their humble DIY beginnings in late 1981, Japan’s Shonen Knife have secured their place as pioneers of Japanese pop-punk music and culture. The rock and roll dreams of three girls blossomed into a reality and continued with their 22nd album Adventure, described as “passing through the 70s, born of influences such as Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Judas Priest and The Ramones with a touch of The Supremes,” all presented through the lens of Shonen Knife’s charismatic pop, sunshine filled fantasy world.

DJ: DJ PEOPLE
DJ People are lovers of good music, good times, and each other. The pair, made up of Ben O’Connor and Guy Blackman, have released records for 25 years on their label Chapter Music. They have DJed at every Meredith Music Festival since 2009, and supported performers including Phoenix, Robert Forster and many others. They traverse all styles and genres in search of the unexpected and the sublime.
