To be held over four days and nights from the 13th to the 16th of November, this year’s AWME has just announced even more acts who will be joining the conference.

Newest additions to the lineup included multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Pete Murray as well as Sydney based-artist Declan Kelly presenting his Diesel ‘n’ Dub project; paying his unique homage to Midnight Oil’s classic album with his own reggae-dub treatment.

Other acts making their debut appearances at AWME including Melbourne’s Chelsea Wilson and Rita Satch, as well as contemporary folk band Oh Pep! Northern Territory will also be well represented with Cassandra Williams, Stewart Gaykamangu and desert reggae group Tjintu Desert Band will be traveling from the remote community of Ikuntji to perform.

International representation will come in the form of Scotland’s Ross Ainslie & Jarlath Henderson, Canada’s Kim Wepme and from our neighbouring country New Zealand, Batacuda Sound Machine.

AWME 2104 takes place from the 13th to the 16th of November across six venues throughout Melbourne. Early bird passes are available from the AWME website, individual showcase tickets are also available from hosting venues.
