Strawberry Fields Festival line-up

By Cobram Courier

Forty-two musicians have been announced in the line-up for the 2019 Strawberry Fields Festival at Tocumwal.

The arts and music festival, on private property fronting the Murray River — known as the ‘wildlands’ — is on from November 29 to December 1.

This year marks the 11th instalment of the festival, bringing together a unique blend of DJs and live artists, plus a community of devoted fans for an unforgettable weekend.

The line-up includes a mix of international guests and beloved local acts who will take to the temporary stages at Strawberry Fields.

Lucky punters have snapped up their tickets in the ballot, with the early bird and round one tickets selling out in record time.

General admission tickets are now on sale.

Some of the artists can enjoy this year include:

●Ausecuma Beats — formed as a combination of musicians from Australia, the Senegambia region, Cuba and Mali. With four percussionists, Ausecuma Beats creates a complex rhythm that virtually forces your body to move.

●Gordon Koang — Gordon hails from the Upper Nile region of what is now South Sudan. Accompanied by his cousin Paul Biel, he performs a blend of traditional Neur rhythms and original compositions in English, Arabic and even his native language of Neur.

●Nu Guinea — the Naples-formed, Berlin-based duo creates sounds influenced from the idea of an exotic, far-off distant place. By combining various music genres that are related to dance floor music in its purest sense, they create a distinct sound.

●Simo Cell — a French rising talent, originally from Nantes. Now Paris-based, this producer differentiates himself with his singular style that melds UK codes to a wider electronic music background. As a DJ, he officiates on very original and adaptive repertoire.
