Proudly presented by FMS Group and Hit 100.3, Rhythm & The Reef, now in its fourth year, is poised to ignite the essence of music, community and the spirit of freedom once again.
The day and night event boasts an impressive line-up headlined by Bliss N Eso, one of Australia's most influential hip-hop groups. With a career spanning over a decade, their energetic performances and chart-topping hits like "Addicted" and "Moments" have solidified their place in the Australian music scene.
Joining them are Skegss, the beloved garage rock trio known for their infectious energy and raw sound. Their hits such as "Up in the Clouds" and "Spring Has Sprung" have made them a favourite among festival-goers.
Additionally, Thelma Plum, the ARIA-nominated singer-songwriter, will captivate the audience with her soulful voice and poignant lyrics, delivering unforgettable tracks like "Better in Blak" and "Clumsy Love."
Adding to the star-studded line-up, Sneaky Sound System, the iconic electronic music duo, will bring their dance-worthy anthems like "UFO" and "Pictures" to the stage. Finally, Allday, the genre-blending rapper and singer, will deliver his unique sound with hits like "You Always Know the DJ" and "In Motion," ensuring an electrifying performance.
In addition to these headliners, the festival will feature a balanced round-up of local and emerging artists including Giant Palms, Jonte, Pacey, The Wild Sky, Same Pains, Dosco, Jaymouth, and more. These talented acts will showcase the rich and diverse musical landscape of the region, providing festival-goers with a unique opportunity to discover and support local talent.
In a new initiative, Rhythm & The Reef is delivering a homeless outreach program as part of its partnership with Aussie Mackay and Chances House to help provide food to the homeless within the region. This program will be aimed at delivering fundraising activations during the festival to raise money to help the less fortunate in the community.
