Grampians Music Festival (GMF) is thrilled to finally lift the veil on its anticipated 2019 line up, with tickets on sale now. The third annual event will take place in the stunning surrounds of Victoria’s Grampians Mountain Ranges from Friday 15 – Sunday 17 February boasting a weekend of some of the best home-grown talent in a truly awe-inspiring visual oasis.

Leading the charge on the 2019 bill will be the inimitable Sampa The Great and globetrottingsinger songwriter Angie McMahon. Since gracing the scene with her 2015 debut The Great Mixtape, Sampa The Great has supported the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Thundercat and Hiatus Kaiyote, appeared on collaborations galore with artists like Remi and Ecca Vandal and received the coveted Australian Music Prize (AMP) for her incredible 2018 album Birds And The BEE9. Rapidly rising star Angie McMahon has garnered industry acclaim and sell-out shows across Australia and the UK since the release of her first single ‘Slow Mover’ only 12 months ago. Since then, the industry heavyweight has secured support slots for Father John Misty, The Shins, Angus & Julia Stone and several other renowned local acts.

 

Other big names on the third festival instalment include Melbourne synth and soul-laden duoSlum Sociable and international charting electronic RnB artist Wafia. Off the back of headline tours of the US and UK as well as sold out shows back home, Slum Sociable will bring cult singles ‘Anyway’, ‘All Night’, ‘Apartment’ and their latest ‘Can’t Figure It Out’ and ‘Do Something About It’ to an army of adoring fans on the GMF stage. Brisbane artist Wafiahas just completed a National Tour to celebrate her infectious new single ‘I’m Good’ and recently lent her impeccable vocals to Louis the Child’s huge hit ‘Better Not’ which earned the artist a feature spot on stage with the band at both their Coachella set and headline show at the renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
