With the inner-city rooftop location set, and the date already locked into many Novocastrians’ diaries, it’s finally time to reveal the specially curated music lineup that will provide the soundtrack for the much-anticipated Elsewhere: The Rooftop.
With a brand new album and massive national tour in tow, the ARIA award-winning Bob Evans is set to grace the Elsewhere stage this September, delivering a set of fresh new tracks and fan favourites. Bob Evans is the folk-pop alter-ego of Jebediah front-man, Kevin Mitchell, and his latest album, Car Boot Sale, is a pure testament to his candid songwriting and charming progressive pop style.
Also joining the line-up is the well-travelled troubadour, Dustin Tebbutt, whose beautifully crafted sounds and emotionally charged lyrics are a perfect match for the chilled out Elsewhere vibes. Boldly gaining momentum since his debut single in 2013, and now on the cusp of releasing his first album, First Light, Dustin Tebbutt, is definitely a rising star to catch on his way to the top.
A few of Newcastle’s finest local acts will round out the event’s music offering, including James Thomson and De’May. Both artists hold their own separately in their respective acts, but will come together this Elsewhere to perform a rare duo set, drenched in a fine mix of folk and blues.
The distinctive voice and unique folk stylings of Dave Wells, and a set of soulful blues from Dan Southward will also treat the Elsewhere audience to some impressive homegrown talent.
Since its announcement last week, Elsewhere: The Rooftop has certainly caught Newcastle’s attention with earlybird tickets now sold out.
General tickets go on sale Friday 17 June at 9am so don’t miss your chance to enjoy one of Newcastle’s best live music experiences on a whole new level with Elsewhere: The Rooftop.
