- The Guardian (Liam Finn)
‘Finn writes irresistible songs that hum with riotous melodic invention.’
With special guest The Money War
Neil Finn is one of the world’s greatest songwriting treasures – it’s no wonder we are so quick to denounce his Kiwidom and call him our own. Ever on the cusp of creative innovation, Finn’s musical genes run deep into the family line. Following the release of his latest album, co-produced with his son Liam and recorded live in front of an online audience, Finn’s latest incarnation is a full musical collaboration with Liam. Sublime, divine, wondrous, these are craftsmen to behold.
‘Liam and I have been dreaming up this record for the last two years. We have a wonderful band assembled to bring it to the stage and are casting the net wide to bring up some old treasures for the setlist.’ (Neil Finn).
Perth duo The Money War was conceived during an American road trip when Dylan Ollivierre (Rainy Day Women) and Carmen Pepper (Warning Birds) were working out what to do following the breakup of their respective bands. In 2016 they were named triple j unearthed winner to play at the Southbound festival and toured nationally with Holy Holy and Meg Mac, before finishing out 2017 with their own headline tour. They’re bringing their refreshing and infectious sounds to the Gardens Main Stage before taking on SXSW – and then the world!

As catchy as they are sweet, Ricky Dean’s ditties are truly delightful. From 6pm.
