Joshua Tillman aka Father John Misty has been confirmed as the first act announced for this year’s Meredith Music Festival in Victoria. If there’s ever a festival where the headliner doesn’t matter, it’s Meredith. It’s all about the vibe and the community, but with FJM (also of Fleet Foxes fame) in attendance that vibe is going to be heightened to fever point as the crowd revel in the glory of his stunner album I Love You Honey Bear live.
Tillman’s evangelical Christian upbringing was first an obstacle to pursuing music but now infuses his songs with a spiritual backbone that injects soul and soothing into every note. Of I Love You Honey Bear Tillmn said “My ambition, aside from making an indulgent, soulful, and epic sound worthy of the subject matter, was to address the sensuality of fear, the terrifying force of love, the unutterable pleasures of true intimacy, and the destruction of emotional and intellectual prisons in my own voice.”
Saturday sunset at Meredith is going to be intense.
The ballot for Meredith closes tomorrow! Get in quick here
