The latest additions to the lineup couldn't get any better with two cheeky surprises in the form of Wafia and Jimothy. Wafia is Brisbane-based and is a perfect mix between touching, heartfelt tracks and dance floor siren songs. With a blend of soulful, broody, and electronic-pop, you'll be singing along in no time. Jimothy aka Timmy Gonzalez 'Hates being lazy, hates being dumb, hangs with posh white kids and loves his darling mum'; brings a new wave of UK rap from North London.
Billie Eilish from the USA may only be 17, but she's fast becoming a global pop phenomenon with her debut EP amassing more than 1.5 billiion combined streams worldwide since release in 2017. She's also released 'bury a friend' a song and music video that's a little eerie and unsettling, channelling some serious horror movie vibes. This little avocado has a mesmerising stage presence and in-depth lyrics, so get excited to see her on the GTM tour for the first time!
There are amazing artists galore including Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, the duo better known as Sofi Tucker from the USA. They're taking their infectiously unique style of house-inspired jungle pop to the stage, plus they have a bunch of sideshows happening in April and May in Wayville, Maitland, Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Bendigo, Townsville, Brisbane, Perth and Bunbury. There's so much more happening, you need to have your ears to the ground and start getting tickets before they're all sold out!
