To quote Michael Scott, “Oh my god! Okay It’s happening, everybody stay calm!” Swirl Fest 2019 is coming! 2019 will welcome the third edition of the annual celebration of local and national live music. This year Swirl Fest will be held across two stages at Crown and Anchor and the Chateau Apollo, allowing more party goers to attend due to the last two edition of the festival being at full capacity at its respective venues.
The co-headliners this year are making us drool, with up-and-coming psych rockers, Baby Blue headlining Chateau Apollo. After their recent release of their EP ‘Do What You Like’, these beautiful souls set sail on a bunch of shows across Australia, including a spot on MTV Unplugged. Headlining the Crown and Anchor stage are alternative rockers, FOAM. These Perth stunners released their debut album last year, and without a doubt it was a hit smash and are constantly proving themselves that they are one of Australia’s best live acts.
Also on this year’s line up is a mix of out-of-this-world local and national talent, Siamese, Zen Panda, Colourblind, Little Dust, David Blumberg & The Maraby Band, Ricky Albeck & The Belair Line Band, Dead Roo, Vintage Crop, Ella Ion, Neighbours, Oopsie Daisy, and Oscar the Wild. Catch all these beauties on the 2nd of February and indulge yourself into some of the best music Australia has to offer.
Tickets: $15 + bf for the first week. $20 + bf after that.

It is a direct antithesis to the breakable, synthetic materials and fast fashion that is churned out by chain stores en masse. McRae designs, sources materials, and sews each leather piece herself.

Look, I don’t know what the cowboys of the wild west used to listen to as they trudged their way across the great plains of Texas, but I doubt it was too dissimilar to Dope Lemon’s banjo-ridden track Stonecutters.
