AUSTRALIAN ’90s and 2000s rock heavyweights The Living End and Something For Kate will join Spiderbait at the inaugural Scene & Heard festival at Wickham Park on November 4.
The Newcastle Herald broke the news last Friday that Spiderbait would appear at the re-branded festival, which was previously known as Live At The Foreshore and targeted at an over-50s demographic.
On Tuesday the full line-up was announced, which also included Killing Heidi, Sneaky Sound System, Skunkhour, Dallas Crane, Front End Loader, Kid Kenobi, Groove Terminator and Goodwill. Plus an appearance from host Lindsay “The Doctor” McDougall from Frenzal Rhomb.
The Living End have a busy festival circuit ahead, as they will also appear at the Red Hot Summer Tour at Roche Estate in Pokolbin in February.
The Prisoner Of Society hit-makers recently released the single Don’t Lose It and will have their eighth album Wunderbar released by the time they arrive in Newcastle.
Something For Kate frontman Paul Dempsey has one of the finest voices in Australia and will be cranking out the likes of Monsters, Three Dimensions and Whatever You Want when his Melbourne three-piece make a welcome return.
With the target market of Scene & Heard being 30s and 40s-somethings, and given it’s Sunday scheduling, the music will wrap up at the work-friendly time of 9pm.
Pre-sale for Scene & Heard starts at 9am on July 18 with general public tickets available from 9am on July 19.
