To get as excited as we are here at Mucho, we’ve included a little rundown of 5 acts we’re super keen to see perform at this years festival.
Rounding up a year of perpetual success, Winston Surfshirt knows how to strike a chord and make you move. The Sydney six-piece seeped into every pore of Australia’s music scene this year, with the release of their debut album ‘Spongecake’, that came after the huge love for hit single ‘Be About You’. If you’re a lover of music dripping in smoothness and psychedelic vibes, don’t miss Winnie hypnotise the massive crowd at THIS THAT.
Boy oh boy, has this pocket rocket racked up air mileage and surged through the ear-ways of almost every radio listener and festival goer in the past 2 years. The Sydney based DJ and producer knows how to get a crowd pumping and will be sure to send crowds crazy with her eccentric, personality driven tunes off her debut full-length Run. She’s a little wild, the crowd will be a little crazy, but that’s just the way we like it.
A live electronic trio that soars to new heights with their indie inspired tunes that are coupled with dark, moody electronic undertones, Crooked Colours are one of the many acts you CANNOT miss. Having performed all over Australia at festivals such as St Jerome’s Laneway, Groovin the Moo and Parklife, and received coveted rotation on triple j with bangers like ‘Come Down’ and ‘Another Way’, the entire Mucho team are waiting with bated breath to see these lads on stage at THIS THAT.
This young Brisbane based music producer has been making waves all throughout the music scene, with sweet, relaxing electronic tunes. Seeing triple j success almost right after he submitted his first single to triple j unearthed, Golden Vessel has since collaborated with Aussie locals Lastlings, Tom Eggert of MTNS, OKBADLANDS and many more. Currently cooking up some fresh material and performing limited sets across Brisbane and the rest of Australia, Golden Vessel’s THIS THAT performance is sure to be a treat.
Performing just days after the release of their latest corker, ‘Do What You Want’, The Presets will be sure to soak up the glorious sways and jumps from festival attendees during their killer set. Never shy of a large crowd, with a back catalogue that shines with stints at festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella and Splendour in The Grass, these two Sydney legends bring their dynamic live set to THIS THAT on what’s guaranteed to be a bloody brilliant day.
