Canberra-based DIY collective Mulgara is launching its own live-streamed festival, Rockin The Burrows.

Joining them is Victoria Austin, from Melbourne band Nothing Really, and solo artist Jack R Reilly, who recently released a new single, ‘Where You Find Yourself’. Rounding out the list is Luke McDonald, from the band Amends, Jim Dusty, Jamie Leone, Ruth Lorelle and Boots Byers.
The event will take place on April 17 from 6pm AEST and all sets will be streamed from the Mulgara Facebook page.
