Wallaby Creek Festival Line Up

Thunder Fox

Thunder Fox have fast become one of Australia’s most exciting and sought after live acts. Thunder Fox shops for inspiration in the bottomless oceans of style spanning pop, rock, funk, hip-hop, fusion and just about everything else; with a wicked sense of humour to boot.        Thunder Fox have produced two full length albums, several popular singles, a tour across Europe and countless headline dates. The band has also had the opportunity to perform on some of Australia’s most prestigious festival stages alongside the likes of Matt Corby, Ocean Alley, M.I.A., The Kooks and a myriad of other world leading acts.

Harding’s House

HARDING’S HOUSE: A FAMILY BAND FROM THE BEACHSIDE TOWN OF HERVEY BAY, QLD- Writing, producing and performing original music about love, mental health, loss, addiction and other facts of life, their style could best be described as indie folk/blues, but it is best to expect the unexpected with these guys, as no two releases sound the same!

SUB-TRIBE

From the raw, roots-driven frequencies of Aotearoa (New Zealand) comes SUB- TRIBE. Rolling in thick with bottom end, glitchy beats and soaring harmonies, expect to be taken on a journey across genres. From blues drenched dub, chunky skank reggae to jazz hop and ragga dancehall, SUB-TRIBE leaves no groove base unturned.

BOOM Shanko (Afro Moses & Shivam Rath)

African Roots Meets Indian Raga with Afro Moses and Shivam Rath

Boom Shanko is a unique world music fusion trio blending rhythmic African medicine music with the intricate melodies of Indian classical and modern day production. The band is led by the charismatic front man and grammy award winning musician Afro Moses hailing from Ghana, accompanied by the masterful Jason Alexander Burns on the Kora (African Harp), and the versatile Multi-Instrumentalist Shivam Rath on the Crystal Slide Guitar, adding an array of musical layers and elements including Indian Classically based Rhythm and Raga, all skilfully woven together through real time beats and live looping. 

The Seven Ups

This heavy groove combo from Melbourne will take you on an abstruse journey into the darker fringes of instrumental music, drifting from funk to spiritual jazz and through to psychedelic fuzz rock. The Seven Ups are your soundtrack to the dancefloor at the end of the world.

OBISUN (Formally known as THE TWINE)

Obi Sun is a family affair. Comprising a mother, father, and son trio, Obi Sun brings a unique dynamic to the stage that is as harmonious as it is electrifying. With a blend of World Beat, ska, roots, and tribal influences, their music is a celebration of unity and rhythm that transcends boundaries.

Honeydrip

A funk n Soul groove train of cosmic proportions

A five piece funk explosion from Sydneys innerwest, Honeydrip’s sound harkens back to a bygone era, indulging in sweet soulful vocals, rich chords and georgous string lines, then switching to raging bass lines, filthy clav and epic arena rock.

Satisvibes

Gold Coast-based stadium reggae rockers Satisvibes will get you moving in all the right places.

Satisvibes is a rising force in the world of reggae funk groove, poised to make a profound impact on the music industry. This dynamic quartet, consisting of Joseph, Matt, Juan, and Aya, brings a refreshing and infectious sound that is both captivating and one-of-a-kind.

Shmoné

The Shmoné project began as a one-man-band experience, Idan’s entrancing music rooted in the art of live looping, weaves together vocals, saxophone, acoustic guitar, and a drum machine. The Shmoné project evolved even further with the addition of three unique band members. Together, they continue to harness the saxophone looping style that defines Shmoné while injecting a full-band electric vibe into their music. The Shmoné project’s upbeat sets includes songs in Hebrew, English, Italian, and French, while exploring genres from folk and jazz to blues, electronic, reggae, and pop.

Aaron Pollock

2020 International Blues Challenge Finalist and upbeat blues fingerpicker!

Australia’s record breaking new talent ‘Aaron Pollock’ has wowed the modern blues and folk world as one of the cleanest and most entertaining singers and guitarists internationally. At only 27 years old, Aaron has ticked all of the ‘folk-poet-troubadour’ boxes, travelling the world as a singer songwriter, becoming a finalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2020, as well as receiving both 2021 ‘MV Best Blues Artist’ and 2020 ‘MV Best Blues Album’ nominations. Touring extensively across both the United States and Australia, Aaron has built healthy and dedicated followings of die hard folk and blues fans, who rave about Aaron’s ability to transport them back in time with authenticity and conviction. He plays a fierce guitar, writes a great song, and stands up as one of the finest young entertainers you will have the pleasure to watch in the modern era.
