Triple J Unearthed Band The Cairos Added To Fuse Festival


This year, Fuse has officially joined forces with the Adelaide Fringe with the Fuse @ Fringe stage as part of opening night celebrations at Rymill Park on Friday, February 18th. Having worked along side and supported the Festival over the last six years, the Adelaide Fringe and Fuse have united, adding a second stage to the program giving local and interstate bands the opportunity to play in front the massive Opening Night crowds.

This year, the winning Triple J Unearthed band chosen to play at Fuse @ Fringe is Brisbane band The Cairos, who have recently released their EP ‘Summer Catalogue’ with the first single  ‘Listening Party’, being played on radio stations across the country and of course Triple J.
