The line-up for Hello Sunshine 2024 will drop in the first week of October. Last year’s performers included eight-time ARIA Award-winning songstress Amy Shark, festival faves The Cat Empire, rapper 360, hometown heroes the Pierce Brothers, DJs Yo! Mafia and Cadence, as well as a DJ set from Murray – the original Red Wiggle. Expect the 2024 line-up to be bigger and better than ever before!
