The line-up additions bring a variety of new voices to the main stage, from the Australian hip hop sounds of Eskatology to the pure punk energy of St Judes.

Bec Stevens will bring her indie punk sound with tracks from her EP Why Don’t You Just, playing alongside Teenage Joans who describe their music as juice-box punk-pop.

There will be no shortage of great local talent at this year’s festival with the first ever Beer & BBQ Band Battle kicking off this Sunday and spanning 4 weekends.

“The Band Battle will be a great opportunity for people to get out to their local brewery and enjoy a beer while getting aquainted with some great SA talent” said Sandow.

Heats will be held in breweries in the North, East, South and West of Adelaide and greater SA. Local bands will battle it out for a place on the stage at BBF where the crowd will decide who becomes Beer Band of 2019.
