A prominent Australian band will be taking their annual travelling festival, The Squeeze on the road in 2022 and a stop in the Murraylands is on the tour.
Two icons of the Australian music business, A Day on the Green and Chugg Music will team with Australian sensation Lime Cordiale for their annual travelling festival, The Squeeze, in April and May 2022.
Lime Cordialehave taken The Squeeze on the road twice before, but the new partnership with A Day on the Green and Roundhouse Entertainment will see their personally curated selection of local talent head to Sturt Reserve in Murray Bridge in April.
Another SA stop for the tour will be at Peter Lehmann Wines in the Barossa Valley also in April.
The band Lime Cordiale said that, "It's crazy to think how The Squeeze has grown from an indoor event to a major outdoor national festival for its third year.
"After the industry has been hit so hard it's a great feeling to know that we're pulling this off," Lime Cordiale said.
"We share a great vision with Chugg Music to be able to achieve something more than just making records. This project is for the music industry and the hungry music lovers.
"We're staying true to what we first set out to do, which is to showcase musicians that are more than just hype and hold an event that has more than just music.
"We want this to make a huge impact for the industry and a small impact on the environment.
"That's why we have partnered with FEAT. Live on the festival to contribute a Solar Slice of $1.00 from each ticket sold which will go towards helping reduce carbon emissions and waste generated by live events with the aim of maximising positive environmental outcomes.
"The line-up has been handpicked by us and something that we'd jump at buying tickets to see.
"Rural festivals are just more fun and go that little bit harder!"
Australian touring music legend Michael Chugg said that the dream of the band has really come to fruition.
"When they did the first Squeeze Festival indoors in 2018, the dream the boys and the Chugg Music team had was to grow to an outdoor touring festival we could take to all corners of Australia and the world," Mr Chugg said.
"Whilst COVID hit us for six in 2020 and 2021, we are very excited to be playing regional one-day events in April and May 2022. It's a great line-up and will be a great day."
Roundhouse Entertainment Promoter, Michael Newton, said he was thrilled to have Lime Cordiale join the A Day on the Green family.
"We've been putting on shows since the Lime Cordiale boys were just kids, but our main ethos has always been about supporting Australian talent, new and established," Mr Newton said.
"The Squeeze is the best of both worlds. People who love Lime Cordiale can come and enjoy their music and the ADay on the Green experience, as well as the other acts on the bill handpicked by Louis and Oli.
"It's a win-win for everyone. There's no better place to enjoy a whole day of live music than at ADay on the Green."
The Squeeze festival is set to be in the Murraylands on April 9, 2022 at the Sturt Reserve in Murray Bridge.
Tickets on sale Friday, December 3 at 12pm.
