The bill of outstanding artists will travel from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra to the Big Apple to make their mark on the global stage and create an opportunity for the Australian Diaspora to connect with their country through its music and art.
The line-up features Triple J Unearthed winners Husky, pop sensation Sheppard, dizzyingly ethereal High Highs, lyrics supremo George Byrne, hip hop diva Maya Jupiter, über cool DJ Ashley Feraude, with live art by Kid Zoom.
