Kallidad :

Witnessing the live performance of the heavy metal Mexican-inspired musos is something everyone has to experience when they get the chance. The three boys from Sydney delve deep into their alter egos of Senor Bang Bang, The Raven and Jacinko, transformed with their famous Dia de Muertos painted faces and crazy eyes. The rarity of finding a purely instrumental band these days able to get people dancing as heavily as they do to Kallidad is astounding. Their energy and fingerpicking are second to none. See more at: www.kallidad.com/

I am a Karrajarri/Yawru Aboriginal woman and a local singer/songwriter from Bidyadanga/Broome. I have been singing since I was five in my father's family band for many years until I moved away and started becoming a solo act. I have sung and played all over the Kimberley and Pilbara region attending to music festivals, parties, family gatherings restaurants and markets. My love for music is family orientated and because of the passion my language is also incorporated into some of my songs.

candice mcleodCandice McLeod here. I’m modern-folk singer/songwriter from QLD and will be touring over in WA throughout April/May following the recent release of my debut EP.

Having spent 2013 living a nomadic life touring the east coast of Australia with her debut single, Whispers, this young Queensland modern folk artist found a home away from home in the Grampians National Park, Victoria over the past 12 months.

Having recently recorded her debut 5-track Live EP in Bruthen, VIC, this Summer sees Candice McLeod back on the road with her campervan; returning to the festivals and stages across the country to once again warm the ears of her listeners with a new heart-tugging collection of songs. Already locked in for the 2015 Bruthen Blues Festival, this gypsy soul is gearing up for an exhilarating New Year.

This unique, colourful, frivolous band of merriment brings together 3 chords, 4 characters, 5 instruments, and uncountable smiles. Taking to the stage after a long period of couch surfing they hope to germinate the Denmark Arts Markets with a little homespun eccentricity.

Brave the Stormpirateman michael

A show that combines everything Pirateman does, this is a mystical experience for all walks of life!

Based around the metaphor "adventure" of life and the travels we take,this show is based around a contemporary/story concept. Combining all of Pirateman's re twirling skills, mesmerising LED twirling, hypnotic contact juggling and some smallish clowning skits to convey a message across: "We must be brave to go on the adventures life takes us on and overcome the storm of fears".  Brave the Storm debut at the 2015 Fringe Festival

1.30 pm Kallidadkallidad

Kallidad is a three piece fiesta party band from Sydney, Australia. No matter how we try to describe our music, people always say the same thing "I wasn't expecting that!"... so we've stopped trying to explain it, and just let our live show do the talking.

David Rastrick - Trumpets/Vocalsrastatrix
