BY THE C: Your ultimate festival guide

Camp Shortland – Saturday 19 Jan, 2019

Camp Shortland will come alive with sounds and sights provided by some of Australia’s most loved hit-makers and music legends when the By The C festival rolls into town on Saturday, 19 January.


1.30pm to 2.00pm

Get in early and support the lucky local band who’ve been selected to open this amazing event.

2.30pm to 3.15pm

Forty years of recording and touring and the show goes on. A fresh 5 track EP release titled “Mental as Anything – 5 Track EP” and a prime slot on the national Apia Good Times Tour sees Mentals rocketing into the future.

3.45pm to 4.30pm

In 1982, two Melbournites and two Sydneysiders – Deborah Conway/Dorland Bray, and Stephen Philip/Helen Carter respectively – released their first independent record, which appeared with no title except for the band’s name and little other information. It became known as the green EP, partly because it was released on the label of the same name, and partly because the cover was, well, green.

5.00pm to 6.00pm

For 35 years, the church has remained one of music’s greatest enigmas, exuding surreal psychedelia and opiated dronescapes. Already, 2015 has seen significant strides in church revivalism, as their impermeable influence resonates with industry and listeners alike.

6.30pm to 7.30pm

On April 22nd 2012 for the first time in 21 years, all four original members of Sydney based band Sunnyboys walked on-stage at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre and performed as guests of the Hoodoo Gurus on their Dig it Up! Invitational.
