Melbourne R&B outfit Big words will kick off proceedings in fine style with a lush, soulful set before one-time Novocastrian Kira Puru takes to the stage with her formidable presence and wow-factor vocals.

Next up, Lovebirds, the solo project of Hamburg’s Sebastian Döring, will ramp up the energy before Touch Sensitive and Jack River take the crowd into the late afternoon in style.

You will be grooving to the sounds of Late Nite Tough Guy, Mallrat and Crooked Colours as the sun goes down before Flight Facilities and Two Door Cinema Club bring the whole shebang home.

Not a bad day at all, right.
