An acclaimed selection of rock’n’roll royalty are set for the 11th annual CherryRock. 

Leading off the announcement is San Francisco punk outfit Dwarves, bringing their heavy-hitting sounds to Melbourne. 

 

 

Atlanta Southern rock group Nashville Pussy will also perform. With music commonly referred to as ‘sleaze rock’, their narratives are exactly that – sex, drugs, drinking and fighting, all wrapped up with a dose of pyschobilly. 

 

 

Next on the bill is Galician rock duo and relentless journeyers BALA who bring a cultural yet effortlessly raw edge to their music.

 

 

Bottlecap arrive from Sweden with their screaming, high-energy rock. They’re from Gothenburg City and have garnered widespread acclaim the world over. 

 

 

Bandung stoner outfit Mooner are also getting in on the action, the side-project of Indonesian maestro Rekti Yoewano who rose to fame with his band The S.I.G.I.T. They’ll appear for a very special performance.

 

 

Kelompok Penerbang Roket cap off the first lineup’s international talent. Influenced by Black Sabbath, Duo Kribo and AKA among others, the Jakarta band bring a dose of ’70s rock with them to Melbourne. 

 

 

Rounding out the first announcements comes the likes of Wollongong talent Totally Unicorn as well as Child, Amyl & The Sniffers, Zombitches and Stiff Richards.

CherryRock017 sprawls two stages in AC/DC Lane and the Cherry Bar main stage, going down on Sunday May 7. Tickets via Cherry Bar
