When Shepparton’s brand new all-ages Land of Plenty festival was announced two weeks ago, we were promised some of ‘Australia’s hottest bands’ – and they’ve certainly delivered with part one of their stellar line-up. All of this plus art displays, carnival rides, food trucks, market stalls, and, rumour has it there is still a second headliner, more acts and DJs yet to be announced.
Headlining the event will be one of the Australia’s smoothest MC’s and exciting live acts, Illy. Illy’s most recent album came in at number one on the ARIA charts and was also nominated for six ARIA awards (including winning Best Live Act). Illy’s lauded career spans five albums, multiple platinum and gold selling single and countless sold-out live tours.
PM-in-waiting Briggs will also be heading to Shepparton, the place he was born and raised, to bring the fire and the celebration. Undoubtedly one of the country’s most diverse talents in media, music and comedy, Briggs is soon to release his fourth solo album having spent the past few years touring alongside the likes Ice Cube, Ice T, 50 Cent, Hilltop Hoods and Paul Kelly – as well as releasing 2017’s multi award-winning A.B Original record ‘Reclaim Australia’. As well as dominating music, Briggs is also continuing his on-screen work (Black Comedy, The Other Guy, Cleverman, The Weekly) – and of course his off-screen work as a show writer for American TV icon Matt Groening’s new Netflix series Enchanted.
Joining Illy and Briggs on stage will be Alex The Astronaut, Slowly Slowly, Tones And I, Ocean Grove, Eliott (featured pic), Jack Botts and Heard Instinct Collective.
