The Drop Festival comes to Noosa during the Noosa Festival of Surfing with a line-up of Aussie legends featuring The Presets, Boy & Bear, Ball Park Music, Allday, DZ Deathrays, Kita Alexander and Graace.
The Presets lit up the music world with their chart-topping LP Apocalypso and hit single My People. Setting new standards for dance music, this album took out 5 ARIA awards as well as the coveted J Award for Album of The Year. They recently released their collaborative Raka EP with Golden Features, featuring lead single Paradise which became the most played song on Triple J within weeks of its release.
After firmly cementing themselves in the Australian music scene with a run of chart-topping albums and hit singles including Southern Sun, Walk the Wire and Feeding Line, multi ARIA award-winning band Boy & Bear are back with an acclaimed new album Suck On Light.
Four J Award album nominations, sold-out headline tours, nine appearances in Triple J's Hottest 100, renowned performances at major festivals around the world and five critically acclaimed studio albums have made Brisbane’s Ball Park Music one of the most respected acts in the country, with vibrant indie-rock anthems including She Only Loves Me When I’m There, It’s Nice To Be Alive, Exactly How You Are and so many more.
Allday’s debut album, Startup Cult, landed a #3 spot on the ARIA Charts and spawned hit singles Right Now and You Always Know The DJ while his second full-length project, Speeding, scored another top 10 chart debut with hit singles Sides, Raceway and In Motion. He recently released a third album, Starry Night Over the Phone which has three top 10 charts and multiple gold certified singles.
From a start playing gigs at house parties DZ Deathrays have become one of the most loved rock acts in Australia. With four records, multiple ARIA Awards and world tours, they are firm festival favourites.
When she’s not surfing, Kita Alexander writes wistful, sophisticated pop songs that are never too far removed from the ocean. With two EPs, acclaimed singles and over 80 million streams already behind her, in May Kita released Between You & I.
Graace’s break came from collaborating with the the likes of Hayden James and Flight Facilities but she’s since carved out her own space with tracks like Last Night, Have Fun At Your Party and Numb racking up tens of millions of streams.
Tickets on sale from 5PM AEST on Wednesday 4 December.
