Teenage Dads are the second secret headliner at The Courtyard Presented by Rolling Stone.

The Brag Media is set to showcase its music and pop culture prowess to SXSW Sydney this week with The Courtyard Presented by Rolling Stone featuring Jim Beam Sessions — promising exclusive live performances, expert discussion, and four unmissable secret headline acts that could break the internet.

Well, make that two secret headline acts. Following on from yesterday’s headliner, Aussie hip hop icon 360, Teenage Dads will be bringing their buzzy indie rock to The Courtyard this evening, Thursday, October 19th, closing out the second day of live music at 7pm.

2023 has been the biggest year of the band’s career to date. They earned a nomination for Readers’ Choice Award at the 2023 Shure Rolling Stone Australia Awards, while they released their positively received EP, Midnight Driving, in March.

Following a Northern Hemisphere trip in support of Lime Cordiale, during which they shot the groovy music video for their latest single “I Like It”, the four-piece returned Down Under for their biggest headline tour of Australia and New Zealand yet.
