CherryRock reveals first taste of mammoth 2017 lineup
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.
