Is there any artist in the country who is more talked about globally right now than singer, songwriter, and producer Tones And I ! And rightly so, Tones will land at The Drop off the back of releasing ‘CHANT’ a fresh collab with America superstar Macklemore! Since her breakout single Dance Monkey’ (the most shamzamed song of all time) smashed streaming and chart records across the globe, Tones has released a consistent stream of global hit singles, Never Seen The Rain’, ‘Fly Away’, ‘Cloudy Day’ and won enough awards to sink a literal cruise ship! Tones is a statistician’s dream; there is no list or stat she hasn’t managed to smash! She has sold out headline shows all over the world, played some of the biggest festivals and performed on major TV shows like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Voice, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and The Today Show. A modern-day Australian music icon performing at Australia’s most iconic beach!

ARIA Award-winning, multi-platinum selling, singer-songwriting, multi instrumentalist and total dreamboat Matt Corby has been melting hearts since his breakthrough EP releaseInto The Flame’ in 2011. He has won ARIA Song Of The Year twice for singles ’Brother’ andResolution’ won a J Award for Album of The Year with his LPRainbow Valley’ and claimed an ARIA #1 album with LP ‘Telluric’ and his 2022 single ‘Miracle Love’ scoring an APRA nom for Most Performed Alternative Work of The Year and winning the Vander & Young Global Songwritting Comp. Matt brings his mix of joyful old soul and futuristic psychedelia to light up The Drop!

Speaking of icons, The Drop is pumped to welcome iconic rat bags Dune Rats! One of the hardest touring bands in the country, it is hard to believe The Drop will be the first time in their 12-year career, lead singer, and guitarist Danny Beus will play a show in his hometown of Coffs Harbour! Crack the VB cans kids, Danny is COMING HOME shits’ about to get riz! They will be playing all of your fav festival anthems like, ‘Scott Green’, ‘Bullshit, andToo Tough Terry’along with new tunes from their crisp new LP ‘Real Rare Whale’ (July 29). One of Australia’s favourite festival acts thanks to their epic live shows and reputation for going all out to get the party started Dunnies always manage to slap a smile on the crankiest of faces!

There are few trajectories in Australian music more remarkable than that of Cub Sport. Since they emerged as a promising young indie band in the early-2010s, they have become known for their powerful, must-see live show and ardent fanbase, as well as ARIA Platinum- and Gold-certified singles like ‘Come On Mess Me Up’, ‘Chasin’ and Sometimes’.  Cub Sport is one of Australia’s most significant pop exports, boasting over 200 million streams and an ARIA #2 album to their name (2020’s Like Nirvana, #1 Vinyl Sales chart, #1 Australian Albums chart). They have had five singles in the triple j Hottest 100 and played the 2020 AFL Grand Final!

At just 18, Gretta Ray won Triple J Unearthed High and the prestigious Vanda & Young Songwriting Award for her high-rotation hit, ‘Drive’. Two EPs, ‘Elsewhere’  and Here and Now’,have taken landed her slots on some of Australia’s biggest festivals, to her first shows in the UK and USA, opening for artists such as Mumford & Sons, Gang of Youths, Lianne La Havas and James Bay. She released her debut album ‘Begin To Look Around’ back in August 2021, alongside single ‘Love Me Right’, and in May this year released this stunning cover of Billy Joel’s smash ‘Vienna’.

Indie surf-pop five-piece Shag Rock have managed, through sheer determination, skill and plenty of shenanigans, to sell out multiple national and international tours, pleasing the masses at festivals and earning over 50 million streams worldwide. Life-long friends who started playing together in high school caught the eye of Powderfinger and The Church guitarist Ian Haug, who fast became their long-time producer. With two LPs, ‘Barefoot’ and ‘Double Overhead’, their 2021  mammoth eighteen-track opus and a certified ARIA gold single Sunbleached Girl’.

Pop-punk, self-professed “two-piece puzzle”, TOWNS guarantee to bring their 90’s soaked good vibes to The Drop! The most wholesome, lovable two-piece in existence have cemented themselves as one of the hottest up-and-coming acts in the country thanks to sold-out headline shows, festival slots and opening stages for some of our favourite local acts. July saw the release of their new single ‘Season 5 (Break My Fall)’, which is getting loads of love from jjj, and is the follow-up to their riotous release ‘Swimming’.

Singer, songwriter and producer Hallie blasted on the scene when she took out the triple j BigSound competition in 2019. Her debut EP ‘Wink Wink Nudge Nudge’ garnered her plays on the station and helped her secure opening slots for artists like Spacey Jane, Stella Donnelly and Holy Holy. Her 2021 single ‘Babysitter’ showcases her harder rock vibes with distorted guitars and heavy synths and follows on from her breakthrough anthem ‘Lip Balm’.
