Under the Southern Stars summer festival will deliver music lovers the ultimate outdoor live music experience at council’s Sunshine Coast Stadium on Sunday, January 20, 2019 with Brisbane’s very own Sheppard joining the best of Aussie rock line-up. 

The 2019 concert will be headlined by Australia’s legendary ARIA Hall Of Fame inductees Hoodoo Gurus, along with Australian rock royalty You Am I. Also on the killer bill is The Superjesus, British India, The Getaway Plan and Scott Darlow.

Sheppard are one of the biggest names in Australian music. 

The Brisbane-based band’s current album, Watching The Sky topped the AIRA album chart on its release in June 2018 and since then the band have been selling out shows as part of their biggest tour to date.

In 2017, Sheppard’s smash hit Coming Home went racing up charts around the world, making its debut on the US Today Show during their stateside tour and becoming one of the biggest radio hits of the Australian summer. 

The Brisbane pop favourites are no strangers to huge concert events, having toured with Justin Bieber and Little Mix in 2017, as well as playing in front of 80,000 fans at the Corona Capital Festival alongside the Foo Fighters, Green Day and more. 

All of this builds on the success that Amy, Emma, and George Sheppard had with their perennial smash hit Geronimo from their 2014 album Bombs Away. 

The song went platinum in 21 countries, including Top 40 in the US, and spent 44 weeks in the Australian ARIA chart including 3 weeks at No 1. 

For over three decades, the Hoodoo Gurus have consistently been one of the most inventive, lyrically smart and exciting rock and roll bands Australia has ever produced. 

Along the way they’ve influenced an entire generation of bands including the likes of You Am I, The Living End, Dallas Crane, Grinspoon and many others. 

Hoodoo Gurus, by any measure, are one of Australia's greatest, best loved and most enduring rock bands.

You Am I are without doubt one of Australia’s all-time essential rock and roll bands.

More than two decades on from their first album release, You Am I have not only had one of the longest and most successful recording careers in Australia, but are also one of our most loved live bands. 

They have won a total of 10 ARIA Awards including Album of the Year, Best Group, and Best Independent Release.

The Superjesus are one of Australia’s most successful and respected rock bands who remain a stable on Aussie rock radio. 

They have expertly managed to bridge the gap between their instantly recognisable late 90s hits and their current melodic rock sound – bringing together new fans and those who’ve been loyal for 20 years. 

Over their career, The Superjesus have collected three ARIA Awards and have release multi-platinum albums plus hit singles. 

Since British India first appeared on the live scene, critical interest swept over the band and Triple J took them under their wings. 

They’ve conquered the stage, played to an array of sold out shows and music festivals galore. 

British India have released five albums, nailed three ARIA Top 10 debuts, multiple ARIA and J Award nominations, won an AIR Award and have had five entries into the Triple J Hottest 100 over the course of their career. 

The Getaway Plan are an alternative-rock band from Melbourne who formed in December 2004. 

Their debut album Other Voices, Other Rooms catapulted them to the forefront of Aussie hard rock and post-hardcore scene. 

Undertaking dozens of tours across the country and internationally, this is the record that made them a household name.

When imagining what real Aussie Indigenous rock looks like, Scott Darlow should be what comes to mind. 

For more than 10 years, Darlow has been one of the country's hardest working and most successful independent artists. Combining incredible unique vocal ability with hooky guitar driven rock with the distinct sounds of the didgeridoo thrown in, Darlow is the real deal.
