“By the time we step on to the SummerSalt stage, it will have been 12 months since we have been on tour, so you cannot imagine how excited we are to play live again with this brilliant line-up of artists,” Cat Empire frontman Felix Riebl said in a press statement released by the festival.

Boy & Bear’s Dave Hosking echoed Riebl’s positive sentiments, saying that his band “cannot wait to be playing together again, alongside other great Australian live bands, in what will be the biggest outdoor Australian tour this summer”.
