Taking place on Friday, June 17th, the epic night will begin with Mikey Young and Raven Mahon in Green Child DJs spinning tunes through the venue. Renowned for their punk and rock’n’roll sound delivered on a slew of vintage equipment, they’ll get the vibes set for the night with a sheer brilliance of tunes.

Second on the bill will see garage rock outfit Parsnip taking to the stage, bringing all of their iconic indie-pop quirks with them. With their debut LP When The Trees Bear Fruit and two EPs under their belt, including the most recent Adding Up, their six years as an ensemble is set to bring dancing and grooving while they steal your hearts.

Next up, the brainchild of Buz Avenue, Mike V, Mike B, Alan G, and Grace Lee will join together as rock’n’roll legends R.M.F.C. with their absolutely mesmerising act. An outfit that will quickly bring the crowd to becoming fans, their music is laced with sizzling chords and rifts that fit perfectly with a Young Henrys in hand.

The penultimate act to take the stage for the night will see Victoria’s own Hierophants with their symphony of post-punk psychedelia that is sure to entrance the crowd. With three albums to their name, with a few singles boasting over 100,000 listens on Spotify, their distinct sound will be more than recognisable when fan favourites like ‘Shoemaker Levy 9’ and ‘Limousine’ ring throughout Max Watts.

Rounding out the night, Melbourne rockers UV Race will take to the stage to showcase the best of the best when it comes to their massive discography. Combining a wave of punk, pop, and indie sounds, the outfit draws inspiration from iconic rock bands like Ramones, New York Dolls, and Bad Religion, and brings the same amount of energy to the stage.
