With the Festival fast approaching we thought it was about time
to drop our third and final musical artist release, and boy it's a
humdinger. As well as that we've got some top news on the beer
front with Coopers on tap across all our high dispense bars at the
With over 90 acts joining you this New Years, we've stuck to our commitment of not only bringing you the top shelf of well known acts but also the Cream of Australia's up and coming talent. As well as this we're also releasing the full lineup for the Dub Shack and Pirates Lair.
Festival Director, Matt Grant says there's a whole smorgasbord of great acts for patrons to keep a watchful eye on. "If you've never seen a full brass band dropping hip-hop beats then make sure you check out the Hi-Tops Brass Band. I'd also urge everyone to check out the heavy rhythms of Svelt, nothing sets a mood like a bit of jungle dub hip-hop, these boys first played Peats several years back as a renegade act on Biffo's Blow Up Bonanza and they've been a favourite of mine ever since".'
Hailing from Melbourne Hiatus Kaiyote are a 4-piece independent future soul group with a whole heap of big name festivals like Woodford Music Festival under their belt. Believe us when we say that these guys are ones to keep your eyes on.
House heavy weights DJ Jungle Snake & DJ Dreamcatcher AKA Slow Blow (as pictured above), are coming straight out of their Goodgod residency in Sydney to Peats! The boys have gone from cult-underground-party, to a righteous institution for in-the-know-house-heads. So far they've hosted iconic internationals - Soulwax, Azari & III, Tiga and In Flagranti so you know their set is going to kill it!
With remixes for Two Door Cinema Club, 2 Bears, Groove Armada, Azari & III, Temper Trap and Bag Raiders Softwar represent the new wave of Australian electronic artists breaking into the internation scene. Having supported big players like Mark Ronson, you know these boys have their sound on lock.
Having shared the stage with Roni Size and Skrillex, Kobra Kai will be dropping some live Drum n' Bass with a touch of Grime. Whilst playing on the back of their latest release - Dark Continent, Cold Century - The Book of Ships Solo have been compared to Animal Collective's Panda Bear.
Known as the creative geniuses behind Australian acts Tijuana Cartel and Audio Shaman, George & O'Sullivan are bringing their unique flavour to Peats Ridge. Self-described as a dubsteppy world of trip-hop beats, glitchy soundscapes and Indian and flamenco influences we can safely say its one of the most musically eclectic and diverse sounds we've heard.
