After two massive weekends of bringing Australia’s cream of the crop to your loungeroom/bedroom/toot/wherever you watch Insta live stories, Isol-Aid Fest is back for a third round, with a whole smorgasbord of supreme talent to keep you company in isolation.
This weekend, we’re treated to two packed-out days again, this time with cheeky sets from likes of Hockey Dad, San Cisco, MEG MAC, Bad//Dreems, Moaning Lisa, Mo’Ju, and a bloody shitload more. Isol-Aid is just getting ridiculous now, and they’ve got no plans to stop anytime soon, it seems.
There are some damn huge names in the lineup this weekend, especially if you wanna get a hit of peak Aussie nostalgia. Tune in at the right time and you’ll catch some Classique bangers from John Butler, Tim Rogers of You Am I and Ella Hooper from Killing Heidi (!!!) and if you’re wondering, yes I will be belting out ‘Weir’ as loudly as possible during that set.
Literally just LOOK at this lineup, hoo mama.
Just like the last two weekends, Isol-Aid Fest 3 kicks off from 12pm East Coast time (which changes from Daylight Savings over the weekend – don’t forget!) and goes through with back to back to back to back sets right up until midnight. Literally 12 hours of power. You love to see it.
While there’s no ticket fee to check in and watch some sick bands take it back to their garage, lounge room, or dancing on their couch/bed in their knickers (yes I’m looking at you, Georgia Maq) Isol-Aid Fest would love for punters to donate what they can to Support Act, who are raising money for an emergency appeal for Aussie musicians, artists, and bands. It has raised just shy of $250k so far, and have a target of $2million.
And great news – Isol-Aid Fest has said they’re just gone a keep putting on socially-distanced festivals every weekend while Australia is in self-isolation and various stages of shutdown. Hell yes mates, meet you front left. And by that, I mean the left-hand side of the couch. You beaut.Image: Getty Images / Marc Grimwade
