Get Outta Town! Regional teens killing it in Unearthed High
Definitely one of the coolest things about Unearthed High each year is that we get to introduce you to a whole bunch of kids making incredible music in all parts of the country. In the past, we’ve had Unearthed High finalists come thru from Tasmania all the way up to the Top End, and we’re also super proud to be able to use this platform to showcase music being made by teenagers outside of the capital cities.
You’re about to meet some teenagers from regional Australia making cool as hell music. From beasty indie chill through to QOTSA-style rock and roll regional Australia is bringing the heat in Unearthed High 2018.
