Herd the squad and commence planning for the Autumn road trip of your live music dreams.
To help revive the recovering live music industry after a gruelling 2020, the NSW government launched an epic events program, helping to give musicians, managers, venue operators and production workers opportunities for employment. After yet another arduous year for the events industry, Great Southern Nights is back and better than ever from 18th March to 10th April 2022.
Ball Park Music, Confidence Man, Illy, Kate Ceberano, Marcia Hines, Montaigne Sheppard and The Jungle Giants are among the headline performers added to an already star-studded line-up for the three-week program being delivered by Destination NSW and Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA).
Other artists on the roster include the likes of 8 time Aria award winning, indie-pop superstar Amy Shark. Self proclaimed nomad, and country music singer/songwriter Adam Harvey, who has spent the past 20 years on the road touring the country collecting an impressive array of gold and platinum albums, and eight Golden Guitar Awards, Adam Harvey is one of Australia’s most popular & enduring recording artists. Lighting up the south coast at Wollongong’s UOW Unibar is record breaking, iconic dance music group – Sneaky Sound System. Sneaky’s first release for the decade is Tell The World, a collaboration with French legend/DJ/producer Norman Doray.
