Lily On Stilts

They Might Be Dead Frogs
Hailing from Melbourne's underground music scene, They Might Be Dead Frogs are a four-piece punk band who unapologetically fuse old-school grunge and grit with modern irreverent Aussie punk. Think heavy bass lines, overdrive and smashing cymbals as well as a blatantly honest attitude.

What The Fuzz! promise to stir up some funk, rock and pop that will slap you in the face in the best way possible.
19 year-old Minami Deguchi fuses storytelling lyrics with electric guitars, a departure from his classical piano background. His live shows promise high energy sing-alongs, blistering guitar solos and a dynamic backing band, promising an electrifying experience.
The members of Mr. Pink come from all across Melbourne and together they combine indie rock and pop punk influences with an infectious energy that'll get anyone on the dance floor.
Drawing inspiration from Cage The Elephant, Paramore and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, this upcoming band from Bendigo is in no shortage of musical variety when it comes to their repertoire.
