Drinking, dancing and live music is officially back in Adelaide with Summer Sounds Festival kicking off with a bang over the weekend.
To celebrate, the festival has added even more acts to its already stacked lineup with some huge supports announced for the following dates:

- SUN 24 JAN: LIME CORDIALE + BAKER BOY + GEORGE ALICE

At the age of 19, Canberra rapper Genesis Owusu had already performed explosive sets at Groovin’ The Moo, Spilt Milk and St. Jerome’s Laneway with the notoriety of his live show continually growing.
Owusu has been nominated for two National Live Music Awards; Hip Hop Live Act of the Year, and ACT Live Act of the Year with his duo, The Ansah Brothers.
CLYPSO has already garnered a slew of notable nods and achievements in the past year including reaching the Top 10 on the Australian Viral 50 Spotify playlist, Triple J Unearthed Artist of the Week, and FBi’s Independent Artist of the Week.
With a triple J Unearthed High winning debut ‘Circles’ in her stride and making a splash with follow up single ‘Stuck in a Bubble’, 2020 has been a big year for 17-year-old George Alice climbing to #1 on Australia’s viral chart.
Both tracks have now clocked a combined 10 million global streams, landing coveted cover profiles on Spotify’s Pop n’ Fresh and The Local List. Don’t miss this impressive Adelaidean as she takes the stage in her hometown Sun 24 Jan.
Adelaide’s young revelation, Jess Day, has featured on many of Spotify’s most noteworthy playlists including Front Left, The Local List, Indie Arrivals, Women of AU & NZ, Broad Chords, Chords & Cardigans and Fresh Finds: Index.
Due to huge demand, Summer Sounds has added a two Person Party Pod option to the upcoming Mallrat + Cub Sport show this Fri 15 Jan, as well as Ruel’s performance on Thu 21 Jan.
