Sail On! blow into Ballarat from the west on a group tour with a bunch of punk mates, Aphir takes her expertly produced glitch pop to Canberra, and The Vanns head to Cooly Beachfest in Coolangatta, where a stack of great bands will take to the stage on Sat.

    Stussy Hussy is back with more Unearthed gigs than you can poke a stick at - if hinterland doofs are your thing, catch Toyo at Bohemian Beatfreaks - a festival inland from Byron, young Tullara is playing a Melbourne show AND Quenscliff Music Festival, Lyall Moloney hits Hobart, and Jungle Love festival is bringing so many amazing acts from the Unearthed stable to Imbil, Queensland. This and way more local gigs from Unearthed acts (more-than-likely in a town near you!).
