Gram­mar kids top fes­ti­val bill

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS - Pre-sale tick­ets are avail­able Tues­day at 9am, fol­lowed by gen­eral re­lease on Wed­nes­day.

FOR­MER Gee­long Gram­mar stu­dents Monte Mor­gan and Har­vey Miller of Client Li­ai­son are set to head­line the Bel­lar­ine Penin­sula’s new Box­ing Day fes­ti­val.

The line-up for the in­au­gu­ral Danc­ing Heads event was re­leased this week, and also fea­tures Dan of Cut Copy, Fleet­mac Wood, Groove City and Dean Turn­ley.

Box­ing Day at Bar­won Heads Ho­tel has been a pop­u­lar tra­di­tion for many years, but the fun has now been for­malised with an event led by the team be­hind Gee­long venues UNO DanceClub and Bloom.

“Once the op­por­tu­nity arose to take the reins, we thought it would be best to take it to a whole new level and trans­form the carpark into the new­est bou­tique mu­sic fes­ti­val site,” or­gan­is­ers said.

Se­cur­ing Client Li­ai­son was a ma­jor coup for Danc­ing Heads, given the duo’s pre­vi­ous in­clu­sion at events such as the Falls Fes­ti­val and Splen­dour in the Grass.

The lo­cal lads were also nomo­ni­ated for two ARIA Awards this week. As well as Best Live Act, they’re fi­nal­ists in the Best Video cat­e­gory for ‘Sur­vival in the City’.

The pair has spent years form­ing the nar­ra­tive be­hind their brand, pre­sent­ing them­selves as late-80s, early-90s CEOs and em­brac­ing the fash­ions, at­ti­tude and lan­guage that come with it.

The event will also fea­ture per­for­mances by UNO DJs, House Cut, Dizzy Daryl, Brad Mayes and Liam Howarth.
