11 new acts have been added to the lineup for this year’s Great Southern Nights concert series, bringing the full itinerary to an impressive 77 names.

The annual program’s latest iteration will feature more than 300 gigs in total, running over 17 nights from Friday March 8 to Sunday 24. In addition to shows in Sydney’s CBD and outer suburbs, Great Southern Nights will bring one-off shows to some of the cities less travelled by Australia’s biggest artists, including (but certainly not limited to) Wollongong, Newcastle, Wagga Wagga, Tamworth and the Northern Rivers.

Joining the bill today (January 16) are some of the biggest names in Australian pop and alternative music – modern-day legends like G Flip, Kita Alexander, Methyl Ethel, Montaigne, Ninajirachi and The Jungle Giants, plus adult contemporary mainstays like Pete Murray, Richard Clapton, The Black Sorrows and The Teskey Brothers, and fast-rising indie-pop gem Mia Wray.

“I’m so stoked to be playing a show in Wollongong,” G Flip said in a press statement, noting: “I didn’t get to play here on my last tour, so I’m really excited to be participating in Great Southern Nights for an epic show. See you there!”

Their excitement was shared by The Jungle Giants, who said in a joint statement of their own: “Pumped to get back to Byron in March for Great Southern Nights! We’re making margs so bring ur friends.”

The new batch of acts join an itinerary that’s already packed to the brim with S-tier talent, including the likes of Ball Park Music, Bliss N Eso, Hoodoo Gurus, Jessica Mauboy, Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Sneaky Sound System, The Cruel Sea, The Whitlams Black Stump Band, Xavier Rudd, Yothu Yindi and You Am I. The first artist announcement arrived last month, and more are set to come over the next few weeks.

Celebrating the mammoth effort of the team behind Great Southern Nights, ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd vouched that this year’s program is shaping up to be “the best we've had yet”. She added: “From the infamous city haunts to country town pubs, the live music community is huge and I love that they're passionate about cheering our home grown talent onto the stages.”

Herd also shared an “enormous thanks to the NSW Government for valuing the significant economic and cultural contribution of Australian music and understanding the importance of keeping our creative industries thriving in cities and regional communities”.
