GS17 posterFEBGroundswell'17 is on at The Waterwheel on March 11, 2017. We aren't running it this time as a new not-for-profit body has been formed. We are however proud to be on the organising committee along with several other volunteers donating their time and expertise to the festival.

Headlining the event is Jimmy Barnes. Jimmy is keen to rock out all his classics and he wont dissappoint we are sure. Supporting Jimmy is Ian Moss, his old Cold Chisel partner in crime. If everybody is nice, we may just witness a semi-reunion.....onstage!!!!  But let's not jinx it.  But Mossy has a show of his own and we love it. This will be the Ian Moss Trios' third time straight performing at Groundswell. A hatrick to Mossy!

We also have Mark Seymour who is leaving the Hunters and Collectors at home to bring us his Mark Seymour & The Undertow show. But make no mistake, Mark will be belting out - Holy Grail, When the river runs dry, Do you see what I see, Say goodbye gosh there is so many, we might have a hard time getting Mark off stage.


Dallas Crane, long-time collaborators with Jimmy Barnes, will be onstage at Groundswell'17. We are very excited to announce Seo Linn for the festival. Groundswell's first international act! Hailing from Dubline, Ireland, the Seo Linn boys are huge in Europe having had their song "The Irish Roar" chosen as the Official FAIreland Song for the Euros 2016.

Rival is is young band fronted by Rob Farnham. Yes we recognise that name as well. Which is why we jumped at the chance to sign the lads up. With a new single release, Rival Fire is about to take off, so get to the festival early so you can say your saw them live at Groundswell'17.

Kicking off the festival will be Moe local Darcy Fox. Darcy won the inaugural Battle of the Bands for the opportunity to perform on stage.
