Well, there’s nothing like a pandemic to keep us on our toes!
Ongoing travel restrictions and border closures mean some of our previously announced acts can no longer join us in person to Rock the Bay on Saturday 9 October. Thankfully, A Little Ray of Sunshine has burst through the clouds to save the day!
Headlining the inaugural Rock the Bay day-long concert is internationally renowned singer-songwriter and Eurovision queen Kate Miller-Heidke, Aussie music icon, Cold Chisel founding member and guitarist Ian Moss, legendary singer-songwriter and former Little River Band frontman Glenn Shorrock, and rocker Sarah McLeod of The Superjesus and solo fame.
And while they can’t join us in person, Kate Ceberano and Bachelor Girl will stretch the limits of social distancing, joining the party remotely to perform a virtual set of their most-loved songs, streamed exclusively to Rock the Bay.
Grooving alongside these world-class headline acts is a packed local line-up including singer-songwriters Luke Kennedy and Mark Sholtez, folk-pop duo Women in Docs plus the electro-pop stylings of Ella Fence and Lucid Safari’s reggae-tinged vibes.
Kicking things off will be Minjerribah’s (North Stradbroke Island) Yulu Burri Ba Dancers presenting a Welcome to Country with a twist.
Hosted by Wynnum Fringe Founder Tom Oliver, Johnny Balbuziente (Married at First Sight) and Brisbane actor Leon Cain, this exciting addition to the bayside calendar is not to be missed.
Join us on the hill at Iona College, Lindum, on October 9 for a spot of Reminiscing and to support some great homegrown talents who’ve had a tough 18 months.
Rock the Bay is a COVID-safe event.
