ReSound Music Festival has announced its lineup, revealing a showcase of outstanding local talent.

The festival, actually two microfestivals running across a number of venues in Ocean Grove on Saturday, June 1 and Geelong on Saturday, June 22, including Blackman’s Brewery, Driftwood Cafe, Murran First Nations Hub, Lou’s Pizza and Wine, Pistol Pete’s, Popcultcha and the Piping Hot Chicken Shop.

Whether it’s the vivid lyricism of Leah Senior, the alt-country songs of Nathan Seeckts, jazz-tinged neo-soul from Wild Gloriosa, Lucy Lorenne’s Barbie-rock bangers, Hassal’s Aussie sharehouse pop or acoustic rock from Loud n Deadly, ReSound has something for every music fan.

Other stellar performers include Sarah Carroll, Bec Goring, Rihanna Fibbins, Ella Sweeney, Sid O’Neil, the Sweethearts, Gabby Steel, Daisy Kilbourne, Jasmin Adria and Winksy.

Winksy’s Kelli Blackmore said there was such a strong sense of community within the music scene in and around Geelong/Djilang.

“Being part of the inaugural Resound Festival is an absolute honour,” Kelli said.

“I’ve dreamed of playing the Piping Hot Chicken Shop in Ocean Grove since I was a teenager.

“Such an epic local venue that has had incredible acts over the years. I can’t wait!”

Part of the City of Greater Geelong’s Live & Local program, all performances are free to attend, with access limited by capacity at each venue.

Geelong mayor Trent Sullivan said the festival, which was all about supporting homegrown musicians and small businesses, provided a great opportunity for audiences across the region to access a diverse range of artists.

“Music is so ingrained in the culture and history of our region and we’re lucky to have such an eclectic blend of musicians wanting to showcase their talents here this June,” Mayor Sullivan said.
