Out On The Weekend and Love Police Touring are pleased to announce headline shows for Justin Townes Earle, Son Volt, Traveller, The Deslondes & Robbie Fulks. All acts will play the already announced Australia’s original and best Americana Music festival Out On The Weekend on October 14 at Seaworks in Melbourne.
Making a very welcome return to a land that has almost become his second home and also headlining Out On The Weekend in 2017, Justin Townes Earle with a full band in tow, will play every major market in Australia. All dates will feature rising country superstar Joshua Hedley, with Canada’s The Sadies playing select dates also.
Appearing for the first time ever in Australia, and with a brilliant new album Notes Of Blue, is the legendary Son Volt, led by former Uncle Tupelo member and co-former Jay Farrar.
Traveller, made up of musical friends, Jonny Fritz, Robert Ellis and Cory Chisel, will play headline dates with first-time visitors to Australia The Deslondes. Quintessentially unique bands they are not to be missed.
It’s taken awhile for much loved troubadour Robbie Fulks to make it down under and we couldn’t be more delighted or happier that in 2017 he has finally decided to make the trip.
Love Police have been firmly committed to bringing great Americana artists to Australia for well over 20 years, and in 2017 that commitment continues with more great artists delivering fans exceptionally good music all over this wide brown land of ours. Good times.
