Some “killer additions” to the quirky music festival

The highly anticipated Offbeat Music Festival has announced new artists on a revised lineup, which promises to wow fans who have been missing quality live music.

Rolling Blacks Coastal Fever and Emma Donovan & The Putbacks are among the artists taking the stage later this month at the Eumundi festival, which was shaping up to be “a bit quirky, a bit offbeat, a bit off the beaten track, and a a little unexpected.

Festival organizer Alice Jones said there were some great additions to the festival.

“After everything we’ve been through lately, in fact, because of everything we’ve been through lately, we’re even more excited to bring this dream line-up to Eumundi for Offbeat 2022,” said she declared.

“While we weren’t able to keep 100% of the original lineup, we’re thrilled that the majority of artists are up for the new date and we have some absolutely brilliant additions to the bill.”

“We are beyond thrilled to announce that Emma Donovan & The Putbacks will join the line-up.”

“With a slew of awards under her belt, not one, but two new albums, Emma has a deep soulful voice that will transport you to another time and another place.”
