“Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.” Frank Zappa
While SA and most of Australia is currently in the midst of some very trying times, we are optimistic for calmer seas on the other side of this current wave.
We believe that Frank Zappa (RIP) was 100% on the money and it is in this spirit that we are forging ahead and announcing the lineup for Spin Off 2022.
Australia is fortunate to have incredible talent both on stage and behind it. Our live music industry simply must keep moving forward and planning for the future to survive. So here goes….
Your fave Adelaide music festival is once again set to bring a selection of Splendour 2022’s most popular players and a dream team of Australia’s finest to Adelaide Showgrounds on Friday 22 July! Get ready to party along with…
GLASS ANIMALS · JACK HARLOW · SPACEY JANE · BALL PARK MUSIC · G FLIP · OLIVER TREE · TATE MCRAE · GENESIS OWUSU · THE CHATS · BEDDY RAYS · TEENAGE JOANS
Glass Animals delivered one of the biggest tracks of 2021 with their hypnotic triple j Hottest 100 #1 hit Heat Waves and it has kept burning ever since! Reaching number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 after a record breaking 51 weeks the track is currently sitting at over a billion Spotify streams and has also earned Glass Animals a Grammy nomination. Fans will finally get to sing along live at Spin Off!
Freo four-piece Spacey Jane gave us the #2 track on last year’s triple j Hottest 100, the mellow soundtrack to summer Booster Seat. These certified local legends also recently picked up a Song Of The Year ARIA award and are set to tour NZ, the UK and Europe before they hit the stage at Spin Off.
In 2021, Jack Harlow found himself on top of the world with a sold-out national tour and one of the biggest songs globally Industry Baby with Lil Nas X. The track reached #1 on Spotify in the US and #2 globally as well as #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. But if you ask the artist how he feels, his only response is “I’m not done yet.” No he’s not. He has Spin Off on his “to do” list!
From comedy to action sports, mock reality TV drama to WWF wrestling in his live shows, the world of Oliver Tree is unlike any artist who has come before him. Versatile in every sense of the word, Tree not only explores every type of entertainment but also every type of genre in his music, most recently recruiting rappers Trippie Redd and Ski Mask The Slump Got for a rework of his viral smash hit Life Goes On with accompanying video featuring Diplo.
With 1.8 billion streams and nearly 500 million YouTube views up her sleeve, Canadian pop songstress Tate McRae is ready to play her first ever Australian show at Spin Off! The youngest musician on Forbes 30 Under 30 List for 2021, Tate mixes her outstanding vocal ability with her unparalleled dance moves to create a performance that has wowed audiences at MTV’s European Music Awards, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and the VMA Pre-Show – now it’s the city of churches turn to witness her star power.
2021 was a huge year for Genesis Owusu, his debut body of work, Smiling With No Teeth arrived as an artistic triumph and has resonated with audiences globally, surpassing genre and disrupting boundaries along the way. Smiling With No Teeth received four ARIA Awards including the coveted Album of the Year, triple j’s J Award for Album of the Year and Music Video of the Year J Award alongside his close collaborator, Riley Blakeway for The Other Black Dog.
Brisbane’s hottest exports Ball Park Music will also be making the pilgrimage south alongside drumming, singing, producing and music writing extraordinaire G Flip and Sunny Coast pub-punk shed-rock ratbags The Chats. Kings of a good time Beddy Rays and 2020 triple j Unearthed High kweenz Teenage Joans are also along for the ride. It’s going to be one helluva day!
