Glenelg Beach

Beach Life is an epic sunset festival by the water, a shimmering oasis of music, food, fun and good times spent with friends old and new.

Line UP


Tunes for the good times, tunes for the rough times, tunes that have stood the test of time. When The Kooks land on Australian soil this summer, they’re bringing all the grit, glory and jangling guitars of the indie britpop scene they’ve ruled for over a decade.

Hitting Australia in support of their new album ‘Let’s Go Sunshine,’ which is being touted as their very best, armed with what is sure to be the guitar album of 2018 and a back catalogue of pure indie gold. The Kooks have enjoyed a steady ascent since their five-times platinum 2006 debut ‘Inside In/Inside Out’. A new wave of young fans have seen them amass over one billion streams and head out on a number of sold out world tours.



Laid back indie rock with a splash of r’n’b, Winston Surfshirt soundtracks life’s cruisier moments, when the sun is setting, vibe is rising and someone just handed you a cold one.



An ancient village that last experienced an economic and cultural boom 300-400 years ago, Arita is now almost a ghost town, littered with old abandoned houses and overgrown with peace blossoms and Japanese maple trees. It’s a quiet, tranquil and contemplative place to be. It’s also the place where Last Dinosaurs decided to escape to record their first new material in the aftermath of the release of their acclaimed 2015 Wellness LP.



With a haunting and high energy live set, MANE’s explosive indie pop is something that has to be seen to be fully believed. With big bold vocals and tunes that have any crowd singing and dancing along to the saddest of songs, you can’t help but have a great time at a MANE show. Her breakout 2018 single Chasing Butterflies has featured strongly across triple j, reaching over 800K streams across all platforms and scored her the national support slot with Kingswood. She has made appearances at Bigsound, Groovin the Moo, Brisbane Festival and Spin Off Festival. Reviews for her live show have seen strong comparisons to Lorde, Florence and the Machine, paired with a packed out room at her Bigsound showcase, it’s clear this Adelaide artist is on everyone’s radar.
