To get musicians back onstage after the pandemic, the New South Wales government and ARIA launched Great Southern Nights. Following two blockbuster years that saw thousands of gigs pop up across the state, the series is returning in 2024 with another 300-plus shows over 17 nights — and the program just got even bigger.

Live music will ring out throughout NSW between Friday, March 8–Sunday, March 24, with musicians big and small performing in Sydney live music institutions and regional hubs, including Newcastle, Wagga Wagga, Tamworth and the Northern Rivers.

Joining the already massive lineup that was announced in December 2023, another 11 artists will be popping up for gigs around NSW during the two-and-a-half-week festival. Leading the new slate of musicians is superstar G Flip, who will be performing at the Towragi Beach Hotel on Friday, March 8.

"I'm so stoked to be playing a show in Wollongong!" said G Flip. "I didn't get to play here on my last tour, so I'm really excited to be participating in Great Southern Nights for an epic show."

Other new additions to Great Southern Nights 2024 include The Jungle Giants, who will be performing in Byron Bay; The Tesky Brothers, who will bring their sultry folk tunes to Wollongong; Ninajirachi, who's getting the party started in Newcastle West; and Montaigne, who will be popping up for an intimate show at Newtown's The Vanguard.

Methyl Ethel, Kita Alexandra, Mia Wray, Pete Murray, Richard Clapton and The Black Sorrows round out the 11 new artists joining the massive lineup.

If you missed the original announcement, there's plenty to dig into. If you love the classics, you'll be able to catch sets from Jimmy Barnes, Peter Garrett & the Alter Egos, The Church, You Am I, Yothu Yindi, The Whitlams Black Stump Band, Hoodoo Gurus and Kate Ceberano.
