The Future Is Now

A brand new night showcasing the future of Australian music is headed to Newcastle’s Bar On The Hill.

The event series aptly named, The Future Is Now, will feature a fresh line-up of up-and-coming Australian talent, and is set to launch on Thursday 10 March.

The Future Is Now will give the local music-loving audience a chance to discover the hottest new Australian acts before they explode onto the international scene.

Headlining The Future Is Now’s maiden show is Tasmanian-born indie charmer Asta, who caught the attention of the Australian music industry and fans alike after winning triple j’s Unearthed High in 2012 with her debut single ‘My Heart Is On Fire’.

After releasing a number of singles, Asta took to the road on her first national tour and landed a string of festival slots, including Newcastle’s THIS THAT festival last October. Asta’s latest single, ‘Dynamite’ saw her team up with rapper Allday in a burst of sizzling indie-pop and 80s infused RnB, and landed her a spot in 2015’s triple j Hottest 100.

Also gracing the stage will be electronic girl-boy duo from Sydney, Yuma X, local quartet, Ceilings, delivering their dreamy brand of anthemic indie rock, and cutting edge pop singer-songwriter, Max Jackson.

– More acts set to be announced in the coming weeks.
