Adam Shirley reads Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

He’s since wandered into Canberra and has yet to find the exit. Born in England, Adam is a cricket tragic who has previously packed trucks, prepared food and pulled the odd hotel night shift for a crust. He is a scientist by trade, has entertained kids of all ages at Questacon and still embraces his inner nerd.

Evan Buckley (The Burley Griffin) LIVE

Evan Buckley (The Burley Griffin) grew up in Canberra, homeschooled in a religious fundamentalist cult, and has since hitchhiked and toured through 37 American states, exorcising and befriending his demons along the way. His most recent US tour took place during the 2016 election and his newest songs reflect the absurdity of the American dream.

Marét leapt into our lives in May 2018 with her debut single Vertigo, “a slinky, electro-pop, self-empowerment anthem”. The song went straight to number 5 on the Triple J Unearthed charts in its first week. Led in her writing by her extraordinary voice, Marét sings with intensity, passion and craft rarely seen in an emerging artist. Debuting her live show in March 2020 at Canberra’s Art, Not Apart Festival, Marét played on the main stage to enraptured audiences. The rest of 2020 will see Marét release her most exciting music yet. Marét is music for our generation, medicine for our times and she is just getting started.
