Rejoice! Porchland is coming! The lovely people behind The Porch Sessions are bringing you an entire Sunday filled with five bands, a market bazzar, fairy lights, cheese platters, an assortment of wines, and, of course, a porch. Porchland Festival will be held in a dreamy, secret location on a private abode in Hanhndorf in early March. With porch fever well and truly hitting Adelaide, and The Porch Sessions selling out every event they have ever announced, this event is sure to be huge.
For those of you unaware of The Porch Sessions, it is a travelling series that delivers live music on a humble porch across different Adelaide abodes featuring local and interstate acts specialising in the areas of folk, blues and jazz. Previous headliners have included Woodlock, Pierce Brothers and Jesse Davidson. They also have a winter series called The Cellar Door Sessions and a special online series, which followed Ollie English and Dan White on The Road Trip Sessions.
Porchland dropped their impressive line up which includes psychedelic pop-rockstars, Lime Cordiale, previous The Porch Sessions act, Winterbourne, gorgeous Melbourne pop duo, Sweet Jean, smokey pipes king, Benjamin James Caldwell and local blues legend, Ollie English.
If anyone knows the history of the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, about a simple weekly set of shows in a Melbourne laneway which turned into a huge national touring festival, you might think that the same future applies for The Porch Sessions. However, Porchland promises to be the first of an annual festival that will solely exist in our little town called Adelaide.
