SummerSalt music festival has unveiled the lineup for its 2023 edition, headed up by Angus & Julia Stone, Ben Harper and City and Colour, with the latter two acts marking the festival’s first-ever international acts.

The festival will make eight stops across the country, kicking off at Canberra’s Stage 88 on January 27. SummerSalt will then travel to Wollongong and Fremantle, before February dates in Hobart, the Yarra Valley and Torquay, Coffs Harbour and Southport. Tickets for the festival will be available here from next Thursday (October 13.)


The 2023 lineup is rounded out by The RubensMiddle Kids and Alex the Astronaut. All artists on the lineup will be performing the full run of SummerSalt shows, except for Middle Kids who won’t appear in Hobart or Canberra.

Earlier this year, the pair performed at the inaugural edition of Queensland’s Long Sunset festival, and will next month perform at the first-ever Harvest Rock festival. There, they’ll perform alongside headliners Jack White, Crowded House and Kurt Vile.
