Cherry is proud to announce that it will be hosting its Tenth Birthday edition of Australia’s only dedicated rock n roll street festival CHERRYROCK016 onSunday 1 May 2016 in AC/DC Lane and at Cherry Bar.
We are excited to announce our full line-up with the addition of our fourth International act, THE SIGIT from Indonesia! The Sigit (The Super Insurgent Group of Intemperance Talent), inspired by 70s Rock Gods, are a hard rock 4-piece who released their first EP in 2004. However, it was their fourth full-length release, ‘Detourn’ that earned the band the esteemed title from Rolling Stone Asia as “The Number One Act of 2013”.
As they say, never trust clowns…One other addition/change to the CherryRock016 line-up is that Clowns are now going to Belgium and have been replaced by High Tension, the punk rockers on a roll, featuring the enigmatic Karina Utomo on lead vocals.
Also confirmed are esteemed rock n roll Internationals KADAVAR from Berlin, Germany and SUPERSUCKERS from Tuscon, USA who join RICHIE RAMONE the legendary drummer for The Ramones, at the pointy end of our incredible tenth birthday CherryRock016 line-up. Plus, Gay Paris and Polish Club, both from Sydney, alongside the blistering local contingent, which includes Power, Dallas Frasca, Dead City Ruins, Mammoth Mammoth, Mesa Cosa and Devil Electric.
Cherry Owner and Booker James Young adds, “Ten years under our belts and I firmly believe this is our best line-up ever. The Sigit from Indonesia sound like Graveyard from Sweden! Kadavar are my favourite band in the world and AC/DC Lane will grow a beard while these hairy Germans play. Supersuckers were born with a tail and will finally shake that tail in AC/DC Lane. And with locals such as High Tension, Power, Dead City Ruins and Dallas Frasca I know Melbourne’s CherryRock street rock n roll festival shall stand proudly beside the legendary Richie Ramone himself, together, too tough too die!”
Kadavar, Richie Ramone, Supersuckers, Gay Paris, The Sigit, Polish Club, Dead City Ruins, Power, High Tension, Dallas Frasca, Mammoth Mammoth, Mesa Cosa and Devil Electric.
