The one-day summer festival will showcase established and emerging local and international artists with an eclectic range of music covering indie rock, Americana, folk, Irish, pop, New Orleans swing, hip hop, singer-songwriters, dreamy pop and electro. performances The line-up includes international acts such as world music band ALDOC, multi-platinum selling pop-rock singer Mundy (Romeo & Juliet soundtrack) and the edgy traditional Irish arrangements of the Seamus Begley Trio.
As well as these international acts, the line-up includes the internationally acclaimed local indie rock band The Phoenix Foundation (Hunt for the Wilderpeople soundtrack), six-piece string band The Eastern, and blues singer Warren Maxwell who will be joining Coastella direct from performing in Antarctica.
