Ball Park Music has been announced as Adelaide Hills music festival Vintage Vibes’ secret headliner.

The ARIA-nominated Brisbane band formed in 2008 and created five albums including Puddinghead and their latest,Weirder & Weirder.

For those unacquainted with Rudimental, you’re probably actually more acquainted than you think. Rudimental set the radio tone in the 2010s, infiltrating pop with global hits featuring artists like Ed Sheeran and Macklemore.

While some festival goers are likely mortified that Groove Armada can be considered vintage, the electronic duo actually debuted over 25 years ago. They’ll perform a DJ set going through their iconic discography, like 2001’s ‘Superstylin’’ and 1999’s ‘I See You Baby’.

British indie-rock band Sea Girls  join the international artists playing on the Saturday, alongside Sydney band Winston Surfshirt, Perth-based hip-hop artist Drapht, and Adelaide’s Stellie,  The Tullamarines, and Tushar.

On Sunday, Melbourne-based blues band and ARIA chart-toppers The Teskey Brothers will take the stage, as will Sydney-based rock band DMA’s.

American Cali-pop indie-folk band Lord Huron joins the Sunday lineup alongside Brisbane pop group Cub Sport, Meg Mac, and local acts Surahn, Tonix, Indiago and Marlon.

In its inaugural year, Vintage Vibes set a high standard and Festival Director Blake Gilchrist says they’re amplifying the experience for 2024.

“We have an eclectic mix of artists, both international and local, creating a musical palette that caters to every attendee,” he says.

“The Adelaide Hills’ beauty combined with such a lineup guarantees an unforgettable experience.”

Food vendors set to hit the festival are The Picnic Tribe, Nagev, Staazi & Co, Motherlode, TaCHs Stroopwafels and Sookii La La.

Vintage Vibes will take place at Tomich Wines, Woodside on January 27 and 28, 2024.
