BREHDREN - With varied musical backgrounds and a combined love of ska and reggae, the eight members of Brehdren bring in elements of jazz, indie pop and progressive rock to create their own unique flavour. Based around a crazy, energetic front man, the rhythm and horn section cover a range of ground, from extended jams to two-minute freak outs.

SWEETLEAF - Wielding a three-piece horn section, Sweetleaf is an original band hailing from Victoria that draws inspiration from the upbeat '90s ska sound of bands like Reel Big Fish and No Doubt. Honing their live performances to be sharp and energetic, they transcend the limits of the ska movement “We’ve never had any boundaries in what genre of music moves us. Hip hop, funk, ska, punk, jazz, soul, bluegrass - really anything that's original.”

KOWNTERPOINT - This unstoppable power trio aims to please just about anyone, blending genres including reggae, psychedelic, classic rock, blues, funk, jazz, punk, ska, rockabilly, surf, hip hop and a few others! Whether it be moshing to a raging punk song, grooving to a solid reggae/hip hop beat, skanking to some sweet ska sounds or stomping to some rockabilly, Kownterpoint always impresses with their spontaneous, no limits, music-loving approach.
