Full Lineup

Simon & The Human Sound System

‘Simon and the Human Sound System’ bring a host of prolific and unique musicians together to form something larger than the sum of their parts: the Human Sound System. Join Simon Jankelson (lead vox), Daniel Romeo (guitar), Alvin Ash (bass), Emanuel Lieberfreund (winds), Maurice Henler (drums) and Mathias Rangel Wulff (percussion) as they perform songs that traverse chasms between Brazilian samba adventures and American cowboy-esque folk, rock and roll nights out with days spent sleeping under the stars reminiscing about past love. Their uplifting poetic songs are sure to bring smiles, open hearts and get feet moving.

Papa Fire

Papa Fire serves up a smorgasboard of fresh music live. Locally-sourced organic vocals and the choicest cuts of six strings nestled in a creamy mash of loop pedal. Papa Fire is proud to harvest rhythms free-range and slaughter mics cruelty-free.

Aussa Nova

Aussa Nova is a music project bringing together diverse influences including Brazilian music, conscious roots reggae, and soulful healing sounds to build a community of musicians making innovative bands and records. For each show, Aussa Nova brings a lineup of 11 artists to present a unique dynamic performance and a cross section of the emerging sub-culture that Aussa Nova represents and is born from. The experience is intended to bring growth to all participants – we hope everyone at the Sound Life Dome will resonate, relax and move with us into a higher place… Viva Aussa Nova!

Zane Thompson

Zane Thompson is a singer songwriter out of Sydney, whose music invites listeners to surreal and other-worldly realms. Tempered by his down to earth nature, Zane imbues his live performances with a depth of emotion that moves audiences. Having played as frontman in Rufflefeather since 2011, Zane cut his teeth playing around the Sydney scene. In 2015 Zane began writing & performing in a solo capacity, satiating his desire to explore more gentle musical territories. This exploration culminated in the release of his debut solo E.P “Guilt Free” in December 2016.

Marty Bright

Marty Bright is a comedian, spoken word artist and MC who has shared his humour, woven wordsmithery and positive vibes around the world on a variety of stages. Whether he is making people laugh with his witty observations, tap their feet with his rhythmic rhymes or pumping up a crowd into a frenzy as an event host Bright is sure to spread some smiles.
