Jet Black Cat Music, Handsome Tours and The Princess Theatre are excited to announce HOT DREAMS – an all-new, multi-stage, one-day festival happening at Brisbane’s Princess Theatre on Saturday 11 June.
The inaugural festival is brought to you by the same team behind the beloved Nine Lives Festival. HOT DREAMS will give Brisbane’s music and cultural scene some added heat this winter with an eclectic line-up of homegrown heroes, alongside renowned internationals: Lucy Dacus (USA), Cate Le Bon (GB), Andy Shauf (CA), Glass Beams, Pinch Points, Moktar and more.
American indie-pop songwriter Lucy Dacus will showcase songs from her latest album, Home Video, bringing her buttery vocals and electric guitar to centre stage. Welsh-born, California-dwelling singer-songwriter, Cate Le Bon will hit Australia’s shores fresh from the release of her hugely acclaimed sixth album, Pompeii. Toronto songwriter and storyteller Andy Shauf will perform songs from his widely lauded LP Wilds.
Joining the international cohort will be enigmatic Melbourne trio Glass Beams, bringing their immersive live set of psychedelia, while post-punk outfit Pinch Points will perform songs from their latest release PROCESS. Brisbane locals, the ‘desperate rock’ four-piece Girl And Girl will hit the stage, plus ‘dehydrated disco’ outfit Scraps will showcase their romantic breed of dazed electronica.
To keep the party pumping, the night will be laced with DJ sets in the outdoor Clarence Courtyard from Melbourne artists Moktar and Andras, and local acts Shandy and Scalymoth. All of this, backdropped by the other-worldly beauty of the heritage-listed, recently reborn Princess Theatre.
