Blue Child Collective + Rachel Caddy

A Fluid Groove collaboration born from the West Australian coastline, Blue Child Collective's easy-flowing, conscious song craft "evokes the gentle rhythms and roaring freedom of Australia’s seaside" (Happy Mag).

Fronted by Dan White, an enthusiastic collaborator, multi-instrumentalist and fingerstyle artisan conjuring soundscapes spanning raging rhythmic grooves to bluesy licks and ethereal trips, this is music with purpose. From his thought-provoking lyrics to the Collective’s engaging live performances, Blue Child Collective reminds us that we're all, in essence, children of this blue planet and connected in our existence; one and the same.

Having supported major touring acts such as The Cat Empire, Sticky Fingers, Caravana Sun, OKA, Band Of Frequencies and many more, the group are notorious for their cross-pollination within and without the music industry, and are currently gearing up to release “Wattle Tree Corroboree”, the first single from their new album and accompanying video colab with Emjay Angeni and Her Name Is Murder Productions, which will take them around Australia for the third time in the last 12 months.

Harry Jakamarra + Elwood Gray

“One of the (Woodford) Festival’s real stand-out artists of the year.”

—Melanie Tait, ABC Radio National Evenings, 15/12/17


Harry Jakamarra has a voice that stops you dead in your tracks. A punchy, Springsteen-esque growl that's imbued with the rugged texture of the West Australian desert where he grew up. 

Harry's songs are truly Australian . . . just like 'Wake in Fright'. A Kimberley Cowboy turned Mad Max, Harry tours in a vegie oil powered fire engine he converted to a house. He tears the roof off Pilbara pubs and southern sit-down gigs alike with his dry Guitar picking and dark, twisted lyrics.
