The much-anticipated OFFBEAT MUSIC FESTIVAL in Eumundi has announced new artists – Rolling Blacks Coastal Fever and Emma Donovan & The Putbacks – on a revised line-up that promises to blow the minds of fans who’ve been missing quality live music.

Festival Organiser Alice Jones says it’s a case of new date (after COVID shenanigans forced a rescheduling from late November) and some sensational new acts.

“While we couldn’t keep 100% of the original line up, we are stoked that the majority of artists are IN for the new date of Saturday 26 March and we have a couple of absolutely killer additions to the bill,” Alice said.

The festival will take place from 12noon – late, with two stages and a 2022 line-up that boasts Holy Holy, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, Hayley Mary, Dallas Frasca, Kallidad, Dear Doonan, Kurilpa Reach, Karl S. Williams, Fragile Animals, Palomino III, The Rumbrellas and local favourites The Gubbi Gubbi Dancers.

“After all we’ve been through lately, in fact, because of all we have been through lately, we are even more excited to be bringing this dream line-up to Eumundi for OFFBEAT 2022,” she said.

“We are beyond excited to announce Emma Donovan & The Putbacks will be joining the line-up,” said Alice. “With a slew of awards under her belt, not one, but two new albums, Emma has a deep soul voice that will transport you to another time and place.”

“And we know the OFFBEAT crowd is going to love Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, renowned for bringing a psychedelic water colour wash over the best charcoal rock n roll. Guitar-driven, with harmonies that hark back to the best 60s LA sound,” said Alice. “Their latest release Sideways To New Italy references what was a gorgeous summer spent largely indoors!”

OFFBEAT promises to be just that. A little offbeat, a bit quirky, a little off the beaten track, and a bit of the unexpected.

The Offbeat Music Festival is proudly supported by Restart investment to Sustain and Expand Fund (RISE) – an Australian Government initiative and is a Covid-safe event.
