If there’s one thing Australia will never say no to, it’s an Aussie music festival. With music festivals seemingly declining in recent years, it’s always refreshing to see a new one pop up, especially when the lineups are fresh, and you’re bound to get some good vibes from the experience. If that’s the sort of thing that gets you excited, then it sounds like you’re going to love the new SummerSalt festival, which is set to kick off later this year.

As Noise11 reports, SummerSalt festival is set to kick off in November, hitting up New South Wales, Western Australia, and South Australia with a distinctive summery lineup.

The bulk of these summer shows will see The Cat Empire and Xavier Rudd teaming up for a distinctive blues and roots-styled set of shows. Having toured together earlier this year, the two bands know how to deliver a good show, and it looks like that’s what audiences in the Hunter Valley, Sydney, Margaret River, and Perth are set to receive.

Meanwhile, Adelaide looks set to get it’s own version of the festival, featuring the John Butler Trio and Missy Higgins headlining a special one-off show. Two of Australia’s favourite artists, the Adelaide leg of the festival is undoubtedly going to be a special one, as the alternative-folk vibes of the John Butler Trio mesh with the highly versatile Missy Higgins in what will certainly be a night to remember.

At this stage, no dates have been announced for capital cities such as Brisbane or Melbourne, but we’ll keep you updated if that changes in the future. Tickets look set to go on sale next week, but in the meantime, register for the ticket ballot at the SummerSalt website.
