Legendary Melbourne soul outfit Saskwatch (pictured) bring their electric live revue to the hills of Tasmania to headline the opening night of the event. Powered by the tremendous vocals of front woman Nkechi Anele and incorporating fast-paced drumming, hand-claps, and an utterly ecstatic brass section, Saskwatch have a reputation for bringing a vibrant and energetic stage show not to be missed.

“If you’re yet to experience the sensation that is the swirling hurricane of unmitigated soul put forth by Saskwatch, then you’ve only got yourself to blame.” – Beat Magazine

Melbourne-based duo Super Wild Horses offer a rousing, minimalist take on post-punk influenced garage pop. Comprised of guitar/drums/keyboards/vocal switch-hitters Amy Franz and Hayley McKee, this all-girl duo have played to sold out rooms all over the country.

Hailing from Rainbow Bay in sunny Queensland, The Babe Rainbow deliver perfectly shambolic, sun soaked, 60’s monterey pop. Their latest single ‘Love Forever’ is dead on.  Click here to watch “Love Forever”.

Holy Holy burst to the scene in 2013 with their killer debut ‘Impossible Like you’ causing a stir with it’s glassy, cascading guitar lines and washed out syncopated rhythms. Comprised of composers from Brisbane and Melbourne, the 5-piece are bringing their reverb-soaked tunes to PANAMA.

Brisbane composer Mckisko’s works have gained critical acclaim for their deft melodies and rich layered productions. She has supported the giants of the genre including Bon Iver, Juana Molina and Jose Gonzales.

Finally, homegrown Tasmanian heroes Tiger Choir are a four-piece band delivering eclectic sample-pop with wild guitar lines over falsetto choruses, drum machines and tangled synthesizers. In 2012 they released their first full-length album, Unicycles, and since then have toured the country with the likes of Deerhunter, The Drums and Regurgitator, building a steady following as they go.
