AUSTRALIAN alt-rock royalty You Am I, the “first lady of rock” Adalita (of Magic Dirt fame), Abbe May’s dark pop, and the Cairo bazaar-inspired orchestrations of Joseph Tawadros will be hitting the Main Stage at Mona on 1 January 2016.
Led by Tim Rogers, who was recently named Double J’s Australian Artist of the Year, You Am I has released 10 studio albums over 25 years.
Having fronted ‘90s cult rock act Magic Dirt for more than two decades, Adalita emerged as a formidable solo artist in 2010, while Abbe May’s dark synth undertones saw her nominated for ARIA’s Best Female Artist in 2013 and shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize.
Joseph Tawadros, who has collaborated with Neil Finn, Lior and Katie Noonan, as well as traditional Middle Eastern performers throughout Europe, Damascus and Istanbul, will kick off the proceeding at Mona on New Year’s Day.
Gates will open for the New Years Day concert at Mona from 3pm.
Tickets are $65 or $55 concession and can be purchased via
