Not content with just letting George Fitzgerald and Henry Saiz lead the party, Strawberry Fields Festival has just dropped an extra 50 acts in a huge second lineup announcement.
Leading the charge is Detroit house pioneer Moodymann, returning to Australia for the first time since 2013.
London producer Dan Shake is also joining the bill, alongside Atish and Voyage Records representatives Andy Hart and Youandewan.
Closer to home, Melbourne one-woman band Tash Sultana will bring her experimental, beat-box laden blues jams to the party, while Perth crew Koi Child will add their infectious energy to the bill in continuing their ever-expanding list of live shows for the year.
Charles Murdoch, CC:Dsco and Alice Ivy are also part of the new swag of artists flying the Aussie flag to join the lineup.
In addition to the new acts, a couple of special showcases have been announced to feature at the festival as well.
The first of which will come on behalf of Tasemakers’ Wondercore Island, using the festival to showcase new material by a number of artists’ on their roster including Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote), Swooping Duck and Oscar Key. London Institution Rhythm Section International will also deliver a showcase at the festival, with Bradley Zero and Prequel set to perform.
Traditionally the first major event of the summer festival season, the second announcement has bolstered the lineup, turning it into one hell of a unique collection of sounds and ideas.
