Joining them on the bill is alt-rock legends Jane’s Addiction. Melbourne’s Amyl and the Sniffers are on everyone’s must-see-list at the moment, and for good reason. Their shows, and the dynamic front-woman Amy Taylor are mesmerising.

Sydneys Redhook is another band that has been winning over fans, with their music that appeals to fans of rock, rap, metalcore and electronica. Sydney band Battlesnake are reknowned for their incredible live sets, so will be another one to savour.

It’s not all about the music though. Between the sets, you can experience the wonders of professional wresting.

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan happens to own the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), and they are bringing some of their biggest stars to Australia. They will be pitted against the Wrestling Alliance of Australia (WAOA) between sets.

For those that know their wrestling, featured talents include NWA Women’s World Champion Kamille, NWA World Tag Team Champions Bestia 666 & Mecha Wolf, NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion Kerry MortonNatalia Markova, Thom LatimerMercurioMissa Kate and much more.
