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

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.

Archer is an old-time sing song man. Others note that hes an outsider. He lives out there for sure, somewhere with no xed address, anywhere or nowhere. Archer is hard to pin down. Born in North Carolina, hes found a roaming home in Australia. He plucks guitar, writes and plays country bush blues, and every new song from Archer sounds 100 years old. His music is stripped back and simple. His in uences skip back generations to the traditional country singers. Tex Morton, Smilin Billy Blinkhorn, guys like that. He learned to sing up North with the Paci c Islanders. Hes a musical drifter, picking up stories wherever he goes, polishing them into honest songs. Theres a sense with Archer that his music exists outside of time. Which makes sense, because he exists outside of place.Saturday Glaneuse Stage 12:00 12:45pmSaturday Salt Lounge 3:15 4:00pmSunday QMF Express (Carriage A) Departs 11am, 12pmSunday Stoked On Hesse 2:30 3:15pmSunday Bowling Club 1:00 1:45pm

FOOT-in-the-DOOR is a vibrant youth program that is supported by FReeZA and runs for the duration of the Queenscliff Music Festival.
Its purpose is to help emerging young artists showcase their talents, and as the name suggests get a foot-in-the-door in the music industry. It gives young artists the chance to perform live in front of an audience at a nationally acclaimed music festival, which is a very valuable and rewarding experience for those selected artists.
There are three sections of the FOOT-in-the-DOOR competition: Pop/Acoustic, Blues Roots & Beyond, and Rock. Five bands/artists will play in each section battling it out in front of a panel of industry judges and spectators for a cash prize.
The 2014 FITD competition featured some up-and-coming stars. We received a record number of applications last year, and the competition for a spot was stronger than ever.

Stella Angelico, Dan Sullivan and Ben Sullivan formed their tight knit trio just under two years ago and have been making their mark on Melbournes live scene as well as recently playing at Barrio as part of Adelaide Festival and emerging from a cloud of pink smoke in a gold sequined caftan on a motherf*ckin boat for MONA FOMA in Tasmania while playing the bongos strapped to her hips with a scimitar balanced on her head. Stellas music moves through psych/exotica, lounge and soul with her rich and powerful voice that feels like it might break at any moment leading the trio. Saturday Glaneuse Stage 8:30 9:30pm

Eventually returning to Sydney, Smyths rst Ivy League Records release is the rollicking Shake It was released earlier this year. Recorded in Echo Park, in the shadow of the Hollywood Hills, and drawing upon the services of Joey Waronker on drums (Atoms For Peace, Thom Yorke, Beck) and Gus Seyffert on Bass (The Black Keys, Norah Jones). Shake It binds a slice of blues with a clattering Shake It binds a slice of blues with a clattering Shake Itof staggered rhythms, punctuated by abstract guitars.

Tijuana Cartel introduce a somewhat intelligent and original sound to the ear, bringing Flamenco guitar, slide guitar, emcees, percussion and scratch DJs to the live forum. Their list of nationwide shows and residencies proves just how well their beguiling sounds cross boundaries. In an era where appropriation is worn almost like a badge of honour, these Gold Coast locals buck the trend and continue to expand, experiment and draw in uence from an ever-widening circle of world and club sounds. You are sure to get a good dance in to the crazy Mexican avours and mashed up beats of the Tijuana Cartel.Saturday Hippos Stage 9:45 11:00pm

Life is a journey, not a destination. So said sage American writer Ralph Waldo Emerson. For evidence of that old chestnuts enduring truth just look at Tim Chaissons passage between his last record, 2012s award-winning album, The Other Side, and his forthcoming release, scheduled for the fall of 2014 produced by Bill Reynolds (Band Of Horses). As journeys go, the roots-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalists trail through 2013-2014 was a blaze of highpoints, including (but not limited to) an East Coast Music Award for best Roots/Traditional Solo Recording of the year, a nalist spot in the Canadian Country Music Associations Discovery Program, and a nomination for Singer/Songwriter Discovery of the Year Award presented by satellite radio SiriusXMs lauded Coffee House channel. Chaisson also notched up three visits to Australia, bringing to ve the total number of tours the P.E.I.-based musician has performed to eager crowds Down Under.Sunday Vue Grand 12:45 1:45pm

The Tides of Welcome, Queenscliffs own Community Choir, are all about musical expression, local community spirit and the sheer joy of singing. The choir generates a collage of voices, as individuals of varying ability nd a niche where they can sing their heart out. There is something special about singing together in seamless harmonies, hearing an individual voice belt out a solo, an amazing improvisation, or perhaps oat above the main body of the choir with ethereal purity. A synergy of sound that is much greater and more beautiful than the sum of the parts. The feeling is exhilarating and we are keen to share this with our audience at Queenscliff Music Festival.Sunday Stoked On Hesse 11:15am 12:15pm

Trevor Hall realized at a very young age that music was more than just a passion. As an eleven year old playing harmonica beside his father in the cradle of the weeping willows of South Carolina, music quickly became his most intimate companion, guide and creative outlet. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs and perform them locally. At sixteen he recorded his rst record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy, an international boarding school east of Los Angeles. In 2013 at the age of 26, after touring consistently for ten years, Trevor decided to take a break from the stage and go on an extended pilgrimage to India. There he spent many weeks studying under a classical Baul musician born and trained in the villages of Bengal. Trevors most recent album, Chapter of the Forest, was released in June 2014 and debuted at #2 on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart and #17 on the iTunes overall albums chart.Sunday Lighthouse Stage 11:45am 12:40pm

Welcome to our Eighteenth edition of the Queenscliff Music Festival. As always, we are proud to be bringing you the best contemporary Australian music from across the country, across genres and across generations. Some favourites are back; Xavier Rudd, The Waifs, The Church and Dan Sultan, and an incredible line-up of QMF rst timers including; The Jezabels, Skunkhour, Perfect Tripod, Husky, The Bombay Royale and many more!
We also welcome back the addition of International Artists to the 2014 program including Nahko, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Kristy Lee, Trevor Hall, Tim Chaison, and Hayward Williams. A big pat on the Chaison, and Hayward Williams. A big pat on the back to Andrew for another stellar programming achievement, and the struggle to decide which artists we must see and which ones we would like to but may not get to.... They will all have CDs for sale so buy them and take your Festival experience home with you.
A little re ection is called for this year on how far we have come. From our rst Festival 18 years ago orchestrated by a handful of local, community minded music lovers and attended by a few hundred people, to a Victorian Hallmark Tourism Event attended by 8,000+ people and still growing. As a not-for-proft organisation we aim to manage our growth in a sustainable way to ensure we dont lose our long term supporters and festival goers, continue our commitment to our community groups, and make our Festival more attractive to campers and younger audiences.
Volunteers play an integral role in making QMF a success each year. This year we will again be recognising more volunteers who have given us 15 years service. We are grateful for the efforts and energy put in to the Festival by all our regular volunteers and I look forward to raising a glass with you this weekend and celebrating your contribution. Our long term volunteers are the backbone of our event and they are the ones who inspire us to continue our own volunteering efforts. Each year of course we also have a band of new volunteers who step up to help us out.
I would like to acknowledge the contribution which Lisa Meyers has made to the Festival. Lisa stepped down this year after 7 years as chair of
the QMF Board. Her leadership and contribution over that time has been outstanding. Thanks Lisa! Fortunately for us, Lisa has stayed on as a member of the Board for this year.
Our partners and sponsors also deserve recognition for their long term commitment to our Festival. We are particularly grateful to our major partners, the Borough of Queenscliffe, Tourism Victoria, FReeZA, and Searoad Ferries for again partnering with us and supporting our role in promoting high quality live music in one of the most beautiful places in Australia.
Congratulations to the 2014 QMF Emerging Artist Grant recipients: Aine Tyrrell and Sagamore. We thank all our Friends of the Festival for supporting our efforts with this program. We wish both acts all the best with their careers. If you too want to help support the careers of aspiring professional musicians consider becoming a Friend of the Festival. Details are on our website. Your membership goes directly into the QMF Grant and is distributed to the grant winners each year by the QMF Board.
I know we will all have a fantastic weekend thanks to the hard yards put in by our staff, Board members, and key volunteers throughout the year and during this weekend. The festival weekend is a great opportunity to showcase our town and for the local community to welcome the many visitors who will join us. See you there!
