Who Played?

Tkay Maidza

Headlining this year's Open Night is Tkay Maidza, one of the most exciting artists in Australian rap and just announced as the winner of Best Female Artist and Best Release at the SA Music Awards.

Hailing from Adelaide, but taking over the world with her high energy, pop tracks 'M.O.B.', 'U-Huh' and 'Switch Lanes', she'll bringing her dance party moves to Open Night.

George Maple

Producer/songwriter George Maple has had a huge year. Following the release of her debut EP 'Vacant Space', Maple has been travelling nonstop, flexing her vocal prowess to tens of thousands all over the world whilst working on new material.

She returns to Australia for the summer to (hopefully) preview some of her new tunes and entertain us with her slinky, soulful jams.


Kilter is riding at the forefront of the new wave of electronic producers coming out of Australia.

His infectious sounds, including 'Want 2' and 'They Say', have been driving people to the dance floor, but it is his live show that keeps people grooving and sets this electronic whiz kid apart.


Local synth-pop act SKIES will have you all grooving out to their smooth tracks and floating harmonies.

Following a triumphant year with two singles featured on Triple J, a new EP, and recognised as Best New Artist at the SA Music Awards, SKIES are definitely on our 'bands to watch' list – don't miss them.


Kicking off proceedings at this year's Open Night is local four piece Mackenzie. The band was founded by Emily Bettison, a Bachelor of Music (Popular Music and Creative Technologies) student at the University's Elder Conservatorium of Music, and also features two of our own talented music graduates.

Mackenzie is a fresh take on piano-driven indie pop. We love their sound and can't wait for you to hear them!

Cats DJs

Everyone's favourite resident DJs from 'Cats' - Rocket Bar & Rooftop's Friday night mainstay - will be spinning tunes on the Open Night stage again this year.

Bringing the vibe between sets, they'll be covering genres from indie, party, hip hop, disco and everything in between!
