The two time ARIA award winning artist returned this year with his fourth album Blackbird. Recorded in Nashville with acclaimed producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Kings Of Leon), it debuted at number 4 on the ARIA charts. It took out the coveted spot of triple js feature album and earned plenty of positive reviews. Earlier this year, Sultan supported Bruce Springsteen &amp; The E Street Band, and then followed it up with a huge national tour this winter with sold-out shows around the country before heading off to perform in London, New York and Los Angeles. In 2010, along with the two ARIAs for Best Blues And Roots Album and Male Artist of the Year, Sultan also scooped up two Deadly Awards and two AIR Awards. Dan Sultans star is swiftly on the rise.Friday Lighthouse Stage 10:45pm 12:00am</p><p>DAN SULTANR O C K</p><p>Too few bands inspire listeners to dance from dusk until dawn, but The Jezabels, with their own brand of bold pop, have never had that problem. Their latest single Time to Dance from their latest album The Brink has been getting people up and moving across the globe in the past couple of months, from the muddy elds of Glastonbury Festival to London Calling Fest, T In The Park, to Montreaux Jazz Festival, Fire y Festival and New Yorks legendary Bowery Ballroom and all points </p><p>in between. With all that constant movement, its only tting that the video was lmed in the city that never sleeps. Rich guitars, synth-hooks and thundering drums build the perfect back drop for Hayley Marys hypnotic voice.Saturday Lighthouse Stage 11:00pm 12:00am</p><p>THE JEZ ABEL S</p><p>P O P</p></li><li><p>11</p><p>THE CHURCH</p><p>HIATUS K AIYOTEEvery so often a band comes along that captures the collective imagination. A band that has all the essential elements in place to become a musical movement. The music of Hiatus Kaiyote strikes the perfect note, merging poetry and polyrhythms. On the bands debut album Tawk Tomahawk, its as if the vast desert landscape has opened up, borrowing ingredients from far-reaching lands to concoct a distinctive avour that is the essence of all its parts. Each song whispers of delicious, ancient stories untold. Hiatus Kaiyote has a style that cant be easily pinpointed. Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Tupac Shakur, Flying Lotus, traditional amenco and music from Mali and Colombia have in uenced the group. Youre eradicating labels of barriers, says Nai Palm. The words are important, but the way theyre shaped makes them malleable for the listener to absorb. How you proceed involves a larger activity, and I love that. Friday Lighthouse Stage 7:00 8:00pm</p><p>S O U L</p><p>The Church continue to rede ne what it is to be a band. Guiding the band though their career has been a combination of chemistry, talent and a desire for excellence. Their unique and distinctive guitar sounds paired with their thought-provoking lyrics have succeeded in inspiring both the audience and the critics imagination the world over. In recent years the band have continued on their creative trajectory, and with their induction into the 2010 ARIA Hall Of Fame, they have been </p><p>able to re ect on their huge body of work as they continue to be proli c and pursue their artistic aspirations both live and in the studio. Rolling Stone Australia gave their last album Untitled #23 an unprecedented 5 star review - a stunningly ambitious album of shimmering rock. A comment that underpins the bands ability to continue to produce progressive and engaging music to this day.Saturday Lighthouse Stage 9:00 10:15pm</p><p>R O C K</p></li><li><p>12</p><p>Inspired by their celebrated rendition of Paul Kellys Inspired by their celebrated rendition of Paul Kellys Meet Me in the Middle of the AirMeet Me in the Middle of the Air, the harmony super group that is Eddie Perfect and Tripod have re-united group that is Eddie Perfect and Tripod have re-united to craft a collection of gorgeous vocal arrangements to craft a collection of gorgeous vocal arrangements of iconic Australian hits across the ages.

Saturday Lighthouse Stage 1:00 2:00pm</p><p>PERFECT TRIPODAUSTR ALIAN SONGS</p><p>Australian Funk/Soul/Hip Hop legends Skunkhour come to Queenscliff Music Festival to perform a special classic album set. Playing their internationally lauded self-titled debut from 1993, song by song. Fused with sinuous grooves, magnetic rhythms, brass hooks, and compelling interwoven dual vocals, the debut album sold world-wide and introduced the band as a wholly original force on the Australian music landscape. Known for their energetic </p><p>sets as well as the depth and diversity of their music, the band reforms for Queenscliff Music Festival to bring a classic back to life. Few Australian bands have crossed as many genres or opened as many doors as Skunkhour. The rst Australian funk hip hop soul rock band to gain a national and international audience and, in the process, blaze a trail for contemporary Aussie hip hop and groove music.

With each new album, this journey has wound like a river making its way toward the ocean - twisting and turning, owing and cascading as it relentlessly pushes forward. Introducing himself as an artist of both imagination and conscience, Xavier Rudds ability to marry uplifting melodies with thought-provoking themes and concepts produced music that, one way or another, made you feel good. With an array of guitars, yidakis (didgeridoos), stomp box and percussion, Rudd re-introduced a lot of Australians to the sounds and stories of the lands original owners, while introducing the rest of the world to an entirely new sound altogether.

Individually, Donna, Vikki and Josh have been busy traveling, relocating and nesting with family, however music has always remained an essential part of everyday life. The Waifs will be temporarily reunited on home soil this November.Theyll be performing favourite tracks spanning their 20 year career plus a few new songs thrown in for good measure. From a journey that began in 1992, with two sisters and a friend traveling in a van playing gigs for anyone and anywhere, to half a million record sales locally and multiple ARIA awards, The Waifs have plenty of tales to tell through their music.
