Doors Open - 7pm
Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever - 7:30pm-8:15pm
Something For Kate - 8:45pm
Over the past two decades, Something for Kate have become one of Australia s most successful and respected bands. They have released six top ten albums, a double album of B-sides, a Best-of album, a DVD, a live album, a video collection, three E.P s, and 24 singles. Having sold over half a million records and amassed a staggering 16 Australian Record Industry Awards nominations (ARIAS), Something for Kate are a household name and yet still maintain an enigmatic presence on the Australian musical landscape.
This is perhaps because to their credit, their music has proven difficult to classify - cerebral, subtle and original, the band have an enormous and fiercely loyal cult-like following. They have won Australian Music Industry Critics Awards for their intense live performances, Rolling Stone gongs for Best Band, Best Album & Best Male Vocalist along with countless other awards, and have toured with everyone from David Bowie to Death Cab for Cutie
Following the explosive success of Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever's debut EP, Talk Tight, last year, the raucous Melbourne five-piece have been added to the Spectrum Now Festival in support of Something For Kate. With their latest single Write Back released in mid-February, the band have cemented their position as an act to watch in 2016, already receiving praise from Triple J, Rolling Stone and Stereogum.
