“I’m beyond thrilled to be a part of Wildflower. All the women involved are total inspirations and some were actually really big influences on me in the early days of my career,” enthuses Missy Higgins, who is set to drop her new single, Edge Of Something next Friday.
“There’s something about being on the road with so many powerful creative women, it’s so rare it kind of creates magic when it happens. I was involved in the second round of Lilith Fair in America about ten years ago and it goes down as one of the best experiences I have ever had, I made lifelong friends out of it. I have no doubt this will be the same, but this time showcasing to the country the huge amount of Aussie talent we have here. An incredible way to get back in to playing live music again, holy moly I’ve missed it.”
“The lineup contains some of my musical and personal heroes, as well as some dear friends, and it’s going to be unforgettable not just for the audience but for us as well,” beams Kate Miller-Heike, who will also kick off her rescheduled Child In Reverse tour in July 2022.“It’s been a rough couple of years, and I can’t think of a more beautiful catharsis than being a part of this festival. It’s impossible for me to overstate how much I’m looking forward to it. Humans need connection. Wildflower will be a celebration of everything that brings people together. I’m actually choking up slightly at the mere thought of it!”
Masterminded by Empire Touring’s General Manager, Isobel Lanesman, the empowered businesswoman effuses, “Wildflower is here to celebrate women in music, many festival lineups have an underrepresentation of women. It is a time to celebrate women in Australian music – artists, producers, and designers – collaborating to bring together a show of extraordinary talents.”
Tickets to Wildflower go on sale at 9am local time on Friday 15 October.
