GS17 posterFEBGroundswell'17 is on at The Waterwheel on March 11, 2017. We aren't running it this time as a new not-for-profit body has been formed. We are however proud to be on the organising committee along with several other volunteers donating their time and expertise to the festival.

Headlining the event is Jimmy Barnes. Jimmy is keen to rock out all his classics and he wont dissappoint we are sure. Supporting Jimmy is Ian Moss, his old Cold Chisel partner in crime. If everybody is nice, we may just witness a semi-reunion.....onstage!!!!  But let's not jinx it.  But Mossy has a show of his own and we love it. This will be the Ian Moss Trios' third time straight performing at Groundswell. A hatrick to Mossy!

We also have Mark Seymour who is leaving the Hunters and Collectors at home to bring us his Mark Seymour & The Undertow show. But make no mistake, Mark will be belting out - Holy Grail, When the river runs dry, Do you see what I see, Say goodbye gosh there is so many, we might have a hard time getting Mark off stage.
