Festival Alert: Summersalt

SUMMER has never sounded better across Australia’s beaches and botanical gardens as SummerSalt sweeps the nation.

If you’ve ever imagined the likes of John Butler, The Teskey Brothers, The Cat Empire, Boy & Bear, Missy Higgins, Montaigne and Emily Wurramara on the same lineup, your dreams have come true because that’s exactly who you’ll find on the SummerSalt Festival bill.

Not all acts will be appearing at all events, but there’s a good chance you’ll catch most of them at your local. And your local show may be closer than you think, with the tour rolling through some out of the way places like Ballarat, Mornington, Tasmania, Geraldton, Canberra and Darwin.

The shows have been announced one or two at a time, so we’re still crossing our fingers and toes for a couple of Queensland shows, but Girl HQ will have to live vicariously through the rest of the country if we miss out up here.

The shows are all family-friendly, with tickets starting at $69.90 +bf for kids for most events. All of the event and ticketing information can be found via the links below. Please always purchase your event tickets only via official outlets and never via ticket resellers like Viagogo.

To get you in the mood, check out The Teskey Brothers Live at The Forum, which they won an ARIA for this week:
