Prior to the Get Out Of My Fridge album launch, Fat Picnic released their music video for single I Don't Wanna Get Up.
The clip features Fat Picnic's broad colour palette and chaotic shenanigans paired with an optimistic party groove, signature catchy hooks and horn riffs. It might be a peak into Fat Picnic's crazy alternate reality universe, but it's only a small taste of the sounds featured on the brand new album Get Out Of My Fridge.
Cholesterol too high? TIME FOR SOME SKADIO!

Be sure to catch the legendary HOPE D + BAND! Shes smashing into music scene hard and killing it!
Hailing from Brisbane, alt pop-rock artist Hope D began writing and playing music at the early age of 9 years old. The second she turned 18 she began incessantly hitting the stages across the city, growing her live performances into an infectious and compelling mix of free flowing lyrics and layered acoustic guitar riffs.
Now with passionate 4-piece band behind her, Hope D’s shows have become more engaging and energetic than ever. They hit the ground running earlier in May this year with their debut single release “Swim”, which caught the attention of triple j unearthed, triple j, Spotify, and a wash of new fans across Australia.

From it’s origins as a small landcare party in 2005, Earth Frequency has now become one of Australia's foremost transformational gatherings. At Earth Frequency, you can always expect an amazing mixture of live and electronic music, performance, visionary art, workshops and lectures, a family and kids space, and a fantastic food and markets area, and of course a positive community vibe. Our aim is to create nothing short of a life changing, transformative experience! We aim to provide a meeting place - people from many different backgrounds, ages and walks of life come together with the shared interests of music, nature, technology, culture, community and peace.
Earth Frequency Festival is held each year at Ivory's Rock Conventions and Events, Peak Crossing. Ivory's Rock is a beautiful outdoor venue with top notch facilities, comfortable campgrounds, and it is conveniently located under an hour from Brisbane and just 20 minutes from Ipswich.

For those attending, it may just be the defining weekend of your summer!
Nestled amongst the surrounding mountains in the Byron Bay hinterland, this diverse community of just over 3000 people has embraced this very different type of music event. The last decade has seen more than 600 world-class artists and thousands of people make their way to the festival, not bad for a little festival that started on the night of the electrical storm of the decade.
Over the past decade Mullum Music Festival has evolved into one of the most successful boutique festivals in the country, proving small isn't just beautiful, it's also economically & environmental sustainable.
No gates. No big headlines. No VIP areas. Basically a ‘No hassle’ festival. A festival where artists and performers mingle, where shows are held in halls, clubs and pubs rather than tents, and instead of driving hours to park in a field and trudge on site, patrons become enmeshed in the spirit of a vibrant village.
The town’s array of boutique performance spaces, cafés, parks, buses and streets are filled with some of the world’s finest international musicians alongside the regions incredibly diverse and talented artists.
