Alys Ffion: At just 20-years-old Alys may not be a musician you immediately recognise, but she is certainly on the rise. Her passion grew from literally sitting on the beach strumming a guitar and in just a few short years she was supporting the likes of Tina Arena, Reece Mastin and Missy Higgins.

Forenzics: Sydney’s improvisational quartet will be performing an afternoon of experimental, psychedelia and soundscapes.
