Bad Friday Festival expands its 2020 lineup with over a dozen new acts

Spacey Jane, Bad//Dreems and more join the bill

Over a dozen new acts have joined the festivities for Bad Friday over the Easter long weekend in Sydney.

Perth’s Spacey Jane were the first to be announced, jumping the gun yesterday with their tour announcement confirming they would be on the bill.

Today (February 13), it was announced that they would be joined by Adelaide pub-rockers Bad//Dreems, Melbourne’s Private Function, Wollongong garage-rock sextet The Pinheads and Japanese band 50/50s, amongst others.

The festival also announced that a second stage, The Oxford Art Factory Stage, will be added across the two-day proceedings in Marrickville’s Railway Parade.

The announcements follow on from the initial news that the festival would be headlined by psych-rock quintet Pond on the Friday and production duo Cosmo’s Midnight on the Saturday.
