Adding to an already stellar line-up, Wanderer Festival has released its final program announcement, cementing a world-class program of music, art, comedy, theatre, circus and artisan workshops over three unforgettable days and nights.
Phenomenal Zambian artist, Sampa The Great (ZM), is all that and so much more – a prodigious talent with a unique voice and point of view, Sampa is a formidable force kicking down the door of a new wave of artistry in hip hop and taking the world by storm.
Coveted by festivals around the world, Wanderer is thrilled to deliver Sampa The Great to the Sapphire Coast.
Attracting acclaimed collaborators (Bon Iver, Michael Stipe, Moor Mother, Sharon Van Etten, Rokia Koné and renowned producer Jacknife Lee) and landing in music critics bucket lists, we are thrilled to welcome internationally renowned visual artist and musician, Lonnie Holley (USA), who delivers an extraordinary aural memoir forged in Alabama fire and a life of extreme adversity and perseverance.
Hailing from closer to home, Ben Lee boasts a 30-year career that has been prolific and unpredictable, producing some of the catchiest tunes in Australian pop history. With his music full of candour and reflection, wit and insight, Ben Lee is at his best and loving it.
Northeast Party House is the ultimate party band – explosive and magnetic. They will be your soundtrack to some unforgettable festival moments this September.
Delivering the laughs this year – award winning Tom Ballard is one of Australia’s hottest comic talents having performed and won acclaim all around the world. A born storyteller with a sharp wit, Claire Hooper is a highly sought after guest and co-host appearing on iconic comedy shows and festival favourite for her captivating and brilliant shows.
Wanderer’s latest program announcement has quality and quantity in spades with 24 artists just announced and joining previously announced headliners Ocean Alley, Django Django (UK), The Jungle Giants, Thelma Plum, Spiderbait and Kevin Morby (USA) to complete the 70+ strong Wanderer Festival 2023 line-up (full list below).
