SummerSalt beach concert returns to Glenelg in 2022

The Teskey Brothers, Xavier Rudd, Kasey Chambers, Holy Holy, The Dreggs and Tulliah are headlining SummerSalt in March 2022.

Following the enormous success of the SummerSalt concert series across Australia over past summer seasons, Zaccaria Concerts & Touring have today announced the next season of SummerSalt concert events around Australia in 2022.

Next cab off the rank is South Australia!

Music lovers are set for a stellar line-up of artists, featuring THE TESKEY BROTHERS, XAVIER RUDD, KASEY CHAMBERS, HOLY HOLY, THE DREGGS and TULLIAH, by the sea breeze at Glenelg Beach.

Since its inception, SummerSalt has continued to deliver the finest Australian artists in some of the most scenic locations around the country. This beachside festival event is set to be a great day out with live music and a vibrant setting. It’s the perfect place to bask in the sun and ocean breeze while kicking back or dancing the day & night away to some of Australia’s best live music.

Homegrown talent, beachside location, family-friendly activities and Little Nippers Kids Zone, local market
stalls, lush lawns, food trucks, and a selection of refreshing beverages perfect for a day in the sunshine.

Promoter, John Zaccaria said “after powering through a tumultuous time for live concerts, we are so excited to return to South Australia with another great outdoor festival event. We’re all keen to get back to enjoying fun days out with friends and some of Australia’s best live music. We have another top lineup of homegrown Aussie talent to bring to Adelaide and can’t wait to see music fans out again making sensational summer memories with their mates.”

Last Tuesday saw the release of two short films that give a behind the scenes look from Australia’s promoters, artists, production crew, ticketing agents, and all those involved in getting live events back on the road across the country amidst lockdowns and imposed restrictions on mass gatherings.

The films were commissioned and supported by Ticketmaster. The first film titled Radical Hope follows SummerSalt promoter John Zaccaria as he staged the first national tours in early 2021, SummerSalt and By The C, following the nationwide lockdown.

The film stars an array of Australian music stars, including Missy Higgins, John Butler, and Felix Riebl (The Cat Empire), and industry legends Icehouse tour manager Larry Ponting, President, Live Nation Asia Pacific Roger Field, Ticketmaster Head of Strategic Partnerships, Rob D’Orazio and Event Health Management, Managing Director Hugh Singe.

The second film titled Back To Live takes a broader look at the industry, focusing on the importance of
touring for artists, the need of community for fans, and a look to the future of our industry. In this film, artists
and performers include Missy Higgins, John Butler, Tim Rogers (You Am I), Emily Wurramara, and British
comedian Russell Howard.

The Teskey Brothers have come a very long way in a very short time. The four friends from Melbourne Australia have seen a meteoric rise in popularity in the past 12 months, amassing a legion of fans all around the world with their timeless soulful recordings and stunning live shows. The band have released 2 critically acclaimed studio albums, with the second receiving 3 ARIA awards and a Grammy nomination. Their live album, ‘Live at The Forum’ released in 2020 reached the number one album position on the Australian charts.

Onstage The Teskey Brothers pull out all stops, conjuring a rare soulful energy and raw emotion. They’ve been crowd favourites at Bonnaroo, Fuji Rock, North Sea Jazz, Firefly, Bottlerock, Latitude and many others, not to mention selling out pretty much all of their own shows in Australia and internationally.

Xavier Rudd’s relentless upward arc is among the most astounding success stories of our time. Over 20 years of touring has seen his global fan base swell to perform sell-out concerts in Japan, throughout Europe, Canada, the USA, including his infamous sold-out Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2018.

Countless more celebrated acts have come and gone like fireworks as his campfire steadily grows: a
beacon to the kind of music fan that seeks sustenance in a fast-food world.

There’s a moment in most artists’ young lives when they realise music will shape their future and define who they are. Kasey Chambers didn’t have to wait for that moment to arrive. Music is part of her DNA.

The Captain (1999) remains one of the most extraordinary and lauded debuts by an Australian artist in any genre. Songs such as the title track, ‘Cry Like a Baby’ and ‘These Pines’ boast a maturity beyond her years and a wealth of Americana-styled musical influences, yet the album has Australia and family at its core, ingredients that have been a staple of Kasey’s song-writing ever since then. The critics and the public saw The Captain for what it was, a blast of fresh air in the local country scene. Kasey was on her way and picked up her first ARIA Awards, for best country album and best female artist.

Greater success was to follow. Barricades & Brickwalls (2001), Kasey’s second album, broke more ground, winning best album at the 2002 ARIAs and landing her at the top of the pop charts in Australia and the third album, Wayward Angel (2004) was another monster success, going straight to No.1 in Australia and producing a string of singles. Kasey’s fourth album, Carnival, debuted at No.1 in August 2006. In 2005 Kasey married fellow musician and songwriter Shane Nicholson and this partnership would form the basis of her next success with their debut as a duo, Rattlin’ Bones (2008), another No.1 debut on the album charts and it won best country album at the ARIAs in 2008. In 2009 family was once again a big influence on Kasey’s music with the following albums Kasey Chambers, Poppa Bill and the Little Hillbillies that won best independent country album at the AIR Awards in 2010, her fifth solo album Little Bird released in September 2010 that peaked at No.3, and a time for reflection captured in her album Storybook.

Holy Holy is a musical project that brings together two composers from two different cities: award winning singer/songwriter Timothy Carroll and Oscar Dawson. Recorded in a series of modest studios and spare rooms in Tasmania and Victoria, Holy Holy’s fourth album, Hello My Beautiful World is perhaps their most fully realised. Built upon a foundation of electronic beats and rolling synths, the record combines lush string arrangements, May-esque guitar riffs and chanted vocals to produce a heady and persuasive mix.

The record moves fluidly through a collection of feverish moods and atmospheres, unfolding unpredictably and building to a series of fierce and manic highs. It’s a dense and ambitious record suited to close and repeated listening.

Fresh from the announcement of their forthcoming album Hello My Beautiful World (out August 20), Holy Holy have released the irrepressible new single The Aftergone (feat. CLEWS). With their three full-length albums to date, the duo has built a loyal and dedicated fanbase with over 100 million streams across their body of work and multiple gold and platinum singles hanging on their walls. If that wasn’t enough, there are nominations for ARIA Awards, J Awards and National Live Music Awards to take note of, all maintained through their fanatically attended live shows and unique songwriting.

Australian Indie-Folk duo, The Dreggs, were formed in 2017, and are made up of Paddy Macrae and Zane Harris. Equipped with two acoustic guitars and a stomp, the Dreggs are masters at keeping it simple, uncomplicated and a hell of a lot of fun.

With the release of their popular single, ‘Give Myself to You’ (2017), they received a significantly positive response, with airtime on Triple J’s ‘Roots & All’ and along with playing countless shows throughout SE Qld, helped them to develop a strong fan base, and let the world know that the Dreggs were here to stay. They continued to power through 2018 with the release of ‘Feel Alive’ and ‘Gold’, and then crashing through an epic 2019, releasing two singles ‘Just One Night’ and ‘You and Me’, and also making it to the line-up of a few major festivals and selling out shows on their National Tours.

At 19 years old, Tulliah, from Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, simply writes from a place of heartfelt experiences with melodies that seamlessly wash over you. One of those songs – ‘Company’, a pianobacked pop song written about toxic crushes and unreciprocated feelings – gave Tulliah the tag of an ‘act of Australia’s future’, placed upon her after becoming a finalist in 2019’s Triple J Unearthed High competition. Off the back of that one single (and after finishing her exams), Tulliah blossomed. She signed to touring agency Select Music and supported acts like Amy Shark and GRAACE on tours, played Melbourne festival shows with Ball Park Music and Thelma Plum, and saw the world desperately ask for what’s next – something she was quietly working on, while still honing in on her skills and solidifying her craft.

Now, with a debut EP titled ‘Fre$h Hugs’ released March 2021, we’re able to go a little deeper into the musical mind of Tulliah and the potent bursts of indie-pop that come from one of Australia’s most exciting new names. The EP is a dizzying six tracks that simultaneously capture Tulliah’s brilliance in pop music as well as the heartfelt stories and emotions that give them their soothing edge: balancing intimacy and richness through swirling and incredibly powerful pop music.

So, jump on board, folks and join us as SummerSalt sets to shine in all its glory again!
