DRMNGNOW – 2021 RISING Festival

DRMNGNOW – 2021 RISING Festival

This event is part of the 2021 RISING Festival.

RISING is a surge of art, music, performance and ceremony in the heart of Melbourne… In other words, it’s a new festival in Victoria’s cultural calendar. RISING will begin on the evening of the total lunar eclipse 26 May and run until 6 June 2021.

Two years have passed since its release, but we’re still crushing on Crushing—Julia Jacklin’s critically acclaimed 2019 album, and one of the year’s best.

The Blue Mountains born, Melbourne based songwriter’s record is full of introspection about relationships in crisis and the strength and fragility of her own body. Crushing’s themes feel particularly relevant during a year which has tested the ties which hold us all together, both inside and out.

Jacklin’s world tour on the back of the album sold out, but she’s back with us for a series of rare solo performances, in which she’ll draw on songs from across her entire catalogue. Feel the full weight of her talents as she distills her craft to its most profound, majestic and empowering self.

Julia will be supported by Kulin Nations-based singer Kee’ahn.
