Nestled at the junction of five major highways, Goondiwindi is set to host a massive Australian music line-up – the largest to converge on the Border Town.
In its inaugural year, Sounds from the Borderline presents a massive line-up of Australia’s most iconic artists to the Goondiwindi Showgrounds on Saturday October 26 2019. The line-up features James Reyne, Diesel, Shannon Noll, Moving Pictures, Bachelor Girl and rounding off the line-up is Colt Seavers Band.
Goondiwindi Regional Council Mayor, Graeme Scheu, says “it’s exciting to be able to see such high profile acts come to Goondiwindi, and judging by the support from the town, this will be bigger than when Bob Geldof performed here. We encourage people to visit and explore what is regional Australia at its best”.
With a massive plethora of hits combined, Sounds From The Borderline is set to light up Goondiwindi like never before…
Headliner, James Reyne is an artist who needs no introduction. He has sold more than two million albums and written some of the most memorable Australian songs of all time. James has been a part of our lives since 1979 originally fronting iconic band Australian Crawl for seven years, releasing four studio albums in five frenetic years in the ’80s. He’s been a solo artist for the past 28 years, releasing eight studio albums, plus two acoustic collections, a covers album and two live albums. James Reyne’s songs have provided the soundtrack to endless Australian summers, including “The Boys Light Up”, “Reckless”, “Beautiful People”, “Lakeside”, “Daughters Of The Northern Coast”, “Fall Of Rome”, “Hammerhead”, “Motor’s Too Fast” and “Slave”.
With over 35 singles, 13 albums, 6 ARIA Awards and record sales edging 1 million, Diesel is a journeyman of music… and at Sounds From the Borderline, you’ll see why. Celebrating 30 years in music, Diesel has been busy having recently released his greatest hits album as well as working on new music. Expect to hear a ‘best of’ collection of tracks including “Tip Of My Tongue”, “Come To Me”, “Soul Revival” and many more.
Shannon Noll has become a legend, a meme, an everyday hero and a county boy who stands by his word and convictions. Certified triple-platinum sales, number #1 hits, five top 10 albums, has 17 platinum and three gold accreditations, and boasts a reputation as the only Australian male artist in national chart history to have ever achieved ten consecutive top ten singles, expect to hear the hits ‘Shine’, ‘Drive’, ‘Lift’ and of course his nod to ‘What About Me’.
The year was 1981, the album was “Days of Innocence” and the track that became an anthem – and often covered – for Moving Pictures was “What About Me”. It topped the Australian charts in 1982 for six consecutive weeks and became the second-highest selling single of 1982. They went on to release three original albums from 1981 through to 1988. Be ready to watch one of Australia’s most cherished pub rock bands of the 80’s belt out their hits when they hit the Border Town.
Over twenty years now since exploding on the scene with their debut single “Buses And Trains”, and one of Australia’s iconic 90s pop duo, Bachelor Girl will showcase their much loved hits. Expect to hear “Treat Me Good”, “Lucky Me”, “I’m Just A Girl” and of course “Busses And Trains” which became APRA’s Song Of The Year in 1998 and is the most performed Australian composition on radio in the last 25 years (APRA, 2017).
The debut album “Waiting For The Day” won the duo an ARIA for “Producer Of The Year”. It was made in a living room. After wowing crowds at Tamworth Country Music Festival in early 2018 and in Stanthorpe earlier this year at Stanthorpe’s Sounds From The Vines, Rockabilly stunt masters, The Colt Seavers Band will open the festival with their entertaining Country/ Aussie rock set. With a background in film and television stunt work, nothing is off limits for the Front man!
Undeniably, this line-up of Aussie icons will capture the hearts and minds of music fans around Australia… this is one Festival you don’t want to miss!
