Sly Withers, who helped curate the festival, released their second studio album ‘Gardens’ in 2021, featuring singles ‘Clarkson’ and ‘Breakfast’. They followed it up with a deluxe edition, which included two new cuts titled ‘Selfish’ and ‘Tell Me Why’, as well as a cover of Coldplay‘s ‘The Scientist’, which they had initially performed on triple j’s Like A Version.

Fellow headliner Ruby Fields also released her latest LP last year, ‘Been Doin’ It For A Bit’. The album, comprising cuts like ‘R.E.G.O’, ‘Bottle’o’ and ‘Song About A Boy’, among others, received a four-star review from NME, who called it a “gut-punching debut from an indie-rocker wiser than her years”.

Elsewhere, Hope D dropped her debut EP ‘Cash Only’ in February last year, following up with singles ‘Happy Hangover’ and ‘Hate Goodbyes’.
