Two of Australia’s biggest names are coming together this summer for one hell of a gig.
Performing at Glenelg Beach early next year, Xavier Rudd and The Cat Empire will be serenading the people of Adelaide, celebrating the sunshine. After all, what summer is complete without some serious folk, blues, and funk from these guys?
Both Rudd and The Cat Empire are known for forging their own path on the music scene, continuously taking the road less travelled. Zaccaria Concerts boast of Rudd’s ‘hypnotic ceremonial rhythms’, ‘gritty guitar blues’, and ‘entrancing yidaki (didgeridoo) passages’, which are sure to hit everyone’s sweet spot. Combine those tunes with The Cat Empire’s ability to get everyone up and dancing, singing along to their most well known songs and celebrating life – we’re in for a treat.
With both acts still touring their latest albums globally, you’ll be smitten with what they have to offer. Whether you’re familiar with Xavier Rudd or not, you’ll be moved by his fresh take on sweet, spiritual, strong, and empowering music. As for The Cat Empire, they’ll be sure to win over everyone’s hearts – young and old – with their deep, funky grooves.
HARTS, Ocean Alley, and Sahara Beck will be joining the two main acts, creating even more magic as they tour around the country.
The running times are subject to change, but are expected to run as following:
Sahara Beck: 3.30pm
Ocean Alley: 4.20pm
Xavier Rudd: 6.40pm
The Cat Empire: 8.25pm
Sure to include everything you could ever want from a summer, outdoor concert, this won’t be one to miss.
