Somewhere between Wilco’s alt-country moments and the low-key pop power of The Go-Betweens, you’ll find Halfway. The eight-piece ensemble have been crafting some of Australia’s most critically acclaimed and records for over 16 years, including the 2014 AIR Awards’ Best Country Album, Any Old Love.

Soaked in Queensland’s rich tradition of indie-pop songwriting, their under-the-radar fifth album, The Golden Halfway Record, is one of the sleeper standouts of 2016, scoring glowing five-star reviews.

Halfway have a decade and a half under their belts of writing simply flawless sounds, burnished with steel guitars and a laconic twang that tempers the sharpness of bittersweet lyrics about love, loss and leather jackets.

Note: The Meriton Festival Village is a licensed venue. Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
