Australian Kevin Parker led sonic super power behind the succulent 1960s psychedelia sprinkled with powerful pop overtones. Since the founding of the band in 2007, Parker’s warped mind has given birth to three albums introducing us to raw, unapologetic world of Tame Impala in Innerspeaker, the melancholic solitude of Lonerism and highly nuanced ode to the transition found in their latest album Currents.  We are hyped to see Parker’s brilliant mind unraveled on Friday’s headline spot in The Woods. 

Sufjan Stevens

This ethereal chronicler of life and death will be joining the festival to tell us stories about the complexities of love and loss. His End of The Road appearance marks his first appearance in the UK ever and we can’t wait to curl up in a blanket, sit under the stars and have a weep over Stevens’ cinematically beautiful deliverance of some of our all time favourite songs.  Catch Stevens in action in the headline spot of The Woods on Saturday night.

Mac Demarco

If we had to choose one musician we’d like to be best friends with, Mac would be “The One”. Within the past few years, Demarco has developed a cult following with his gap-toothed charm and become the reigning king of slacker rock yet there is more to him than his childlike endeavours. The Brooklyn-based 25-year-old Demarco is a multi-instrumentalist and the man behind every instrument heard on his three brilliant albums 2, Salad Days and Another One. You will find him conquering the Garden Stage on Sunday evening.

If combining the suave of bossanova with freak folk is a thing, then this is it. Pratt’s vocals stand out with their child-like innocence yet her strength as a singer-songwriter carries a strong resemblance to the 1960s goddesses like Francoise Hardy, Nico and Joni Mitchell. We are in love with the captivating blissfulness of Pratt’s vocal range and she can be found performing in the Tipi Tent on Saturday evening.

Pond

Pond is a project where a musical democracy reigns. Founded by Joseph Orion, Jamie Terry and two members of Tame Impala’s touring group, Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson, the band was started as a collaboration where they could get anyone to play whatever they wanted in musical projects. It is a far-out cocktail of garage rock, glam pop and super intense psychedelia that is something out of this universe. Immerse yourself in the world of Pond on Friday evening at Big Top.
