Who said festival season was over? Get ready to combat the cold with a scorcher of a local line-up from Vision Festival. The festival returns to Jive in July as a part of Music SA’s Umbrella Winter City Sounds program. The powerhouse line-up will feature local legends, Horror My Friend, Perth’s The Love Junkies, Newcastle’s Maids, Adelaide’s Cobra and emerging Music SA act, Pemberton.
Last year’s festival was an absolute cracker with a variety of local acts, including psychedelic groovers, Glass Skies, experimental rockers, Sparkspitter and innovative garage rock legends, West Thebarton Brothel Party who have since gone on to win Triple J Unearthed competition to play Groovin’ The Moo and become one of the best music exports from Adelaide.
The festival was curated by music writer and entrepreneur, Jonty Czuchwicki who wanted to create an avenue for up-and-coming acts to gain exposure and promote local live music in Adelaide. Prior to the beginning of Vision Festival, Czuchwicki had been running the successful club night Cobra Presents at Ancient World. The club night showcased a variety of local live music which eventually gave him the inspiration to do something bigger, in a festival format.
Headlining the festival will be local legends Horror My Friend, who recently released their debut album Stay In, Do Nothing and released their third and final single off the album, PB Remains. The boys recently showed off their mixture of shoegaze, post-punk and indie rock goodness in the UK apart of The Great Escape Festival and The Aussie BBQ in London.
The boys will be joined by The Love Junkies, with a set sure to be filled with fuzzy guitars and ruthless energy. Vision Festival will also feature interstate act, Maids who will be bringing their signature sound of heavy rock. Music SA emerging student act Pemberton will be opening the night with progressive-metal natives, Cobra.
