The Captain and Friends Present

The Jungle Giants

The Jungle Giants

The Jungle Giants have certainly now found their place right at the top of Australian alt Pop.  It has been a long road, but they are one of those bands that have always been there pushing out hits, hooks and grooves that you don’t even know you know.

The Brisbane 4-piece defied expectations with career high third album ‘Quiet

Ferocity.’ Recorded and produced entirely themselves forcing a dominant performance in this year’s Hottest 100.  The sheer weight of that catalogue, experience and energy are now undeniable. Renowned for their energetic live sets, filled with charging dance hooks and contagious scream-your-lungs-out choruses.

They are everything a festival band should be and now everyone knows it. 

If you saw them at Splendour count yourself lucky, the Captain was late and couldn’t get within 200 metres of the tent.

We couldn’t be happier to have them in charge of the first BeachClub. 

Closing the beach… There will be moments.

Alice Ivy

Alice Ivy

The first thing to know about Alice Ivy is the heavy talents that she keeps being compared to, the Avalanches and J-Dilla are serious names to be throwing around and it’s a testement to the young performer that they are granted.  2018’s release I’m Dreaming is a serious good listen and feels right at home with sand beneath the feet.

Her live show has been bubbling away, honing her craft with local tours, numerous festival appearances, high-profile supports, standout showcases and a knockout triple J live performance to boot.

Well and truly the full package now, BeachClub is excited to have Alice Ivy lay her blissfull production on the sands of Mooloolaba.

Sampology

Sampology

Brisbane’s own DJ-cameleon, Sampology will be gracing the beach late in the piece to keep the beach vibes rolling.

With his roots firmly ground and earned in turntablism and the legendary A/V shows of the last decade, Sampology has shifted focus to put forward 2 of the most truly interesting electronic productions (Natural Selections/Mt Glorious) from Australia in the last couple of years.

The relentlessly innovative Brisbane native has evolved as an artist and performer and has shifted from his sample heavy beginnings to a deeper musical palette on 2018’s Mt Glorious.

With masterful incorporation of live and sampled instrumentation, string arrangements and drum-machine driven beats with unmistakable jazz undertones, the result is a vibrant and colourful body of work that draws from nostalgic textures and ambient, Balearic influences.

Who knows what Sam is going to bring but he has the skills and crate to take it anywhere.
