New SummerSalt, Beachside Music Festival To Launch In Adelaide

With sun, salt air, and sweet music to wash over the Australian coast, SummerSalt will create the perfect setting to dance the afternoon away with your friends or chill on the beach.  The first show will kick off in Adelaide. 

A brand new concert event is set to hit Adelaide which exemplifies the great Australian outdoor summer. Presented by Zaccaria Concerts and Touring, SummerSalt will take place in some of the most picturesque locations around the country.  On top of showcasing the best of home-grown and international bands – it will also bring cultural attractions, placing a very heavy emphasis on local community and sustainability.   This will be a first of its kind.  Launching the first SummerSalt series of concerts, will be some of Australia’s best loved and most notable bands & artists.
With sun, salt air, and sweet music to wash over the Australian coast, SummerSalt will create the perfect setting to dance the afternoon away with your friends or chill on the beach.  The first show will kick off in Adelaide.  South Australian audiences will be able to soak up some classic seaside charm under the spell of John Butler Trio and Missy Higgins on the shores of Glenelg Beach.
John Butler remains one of the most successful independent artists in Australia’s history, His band, the John Butler Trio, have sold out a myriad of performances over the years in Australia and have gone on to take their music worldwide.   John Butler has an impressive one million album sales to his name, has been the No. 1 most played artist on Australian radio and has numerous ARIA awards to write home about.  Having played on countless festivals across the globe, John Butler Trio are in constant demand, after developing an earnest reputation as one of the best live blues and roots acts to this day.  Their recent ARIA award winning album, Flesh & Blood, was released globally in February 2014.  This then took them to sold out shows in Australia, Europe & North America, then remarkably saw them play their largest ever headline ticketed show at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Colorado) in front of nearly 10,000 people.  John Butler Trio continues to capture their fans and take them on an organic journey.
Over the last decade Missy Higgins has become one of our most beloved singer/songwriters. Her first three albums, The Sound of WhiteOn a Clear Night and The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle, have sold more than a million copies. They’ve each gone to No. 1 on the Australian charts and each has also been recognised with ARIA Awards.  In September 2014, Missy released her fourth studio album OZ, an eclectic mix of Aussie cover versions also accompanied by a quirky book of related essays. The album received rave reviews on release and in the accompanying OZ book,Missy uses each of the recordings as the starting point for a sprawling series of essays; reflecting on life, love, music and much more.
The concert event will include a dedicated SummerSalt Lounge area (for lounge tickets holders only) for those who wish to enjoy the show at their own pace & leisure.  There will also be access for concert goers to market stalls, mobile food options and activities to bring culture and community together.  Many of these events are family friendly and will encourage people of all ages.   Patrons are encouraged to check online for all ticketing information first, as each venue has different restrictions.
SummerSalt respects the gorgeous summer settings we are gifted with across Australia and include green initiatives to minimize our impact on these locations and beyond.   As part of our efforts, you can purchase a Green Ticket for an additional $3.00 and this will be invested into native reforestation projects across agricultural land in NSW & QLD.  These projects help offset the emissions generated by the SummerSalt concert series.
This is a stellar line up of Australian music and is going to be a superb Summer series.
Watch this space for more shows to be announced in the coming months.
