5 bands we want to see play in Newcastle this year!

We’ve just reached the halfway mark for 2019 and while we think they’ve been some amazing gigs this year, with a bunch to come, we can’t help longing for more.

So here are 5 acts we’d love to see in Newcastle really soon!

Head to our Facebook page and let us know which acts you’d like to see in Newy this year.

Dope Lemon

Dope Lemon brought their debut run of shows to the Cambridge Hotel last year and basically… We want more. We the new single Salt & Pepper ringing in the ears of Australians we think the second half of 2019 is the perfect time for a Dope Lemon gig in Newy.

The Teskey Brothers

Dear Mr Teske. We know you’ve played around us a few times recently, but we’ve love you to come to play in us. You know, somewhere outdoors on a balmy afternoon just as the sun goes down… sounds perfect.

Hiatus Kaiyote

There is so much love around Australia for Hiatus Kaiyote at the moment and goddamit, we demand they come to Newcastle and lay us down with their unique future soul sound. The Melbourne quartet had been packing rooms all around the country and we think it’s our turn to see what all the fuss is about.

Cub Sport

What’s not to love about Cub Sport? The QLD duo floored us with their local show last year and since then we’ve been wanting more. Bring us some of those sweet sweet harmonies for the second half of 2019, we beg you.

Oh Pep!

The first time we laid eyes and ears on Oh Pep! was back in 2015 at the BIGSOUND music conference in Brisbane and we immediately became HUGE fans. Their latest release, I Wasn’t Only Thinking About You, is absolute gold and the band have been touring it world wide to much acclaim. But we’re hoping for some local love in the back half of this year and can’t wait to be standing down the front singing along.
