Text ID: Make it Maitland Presents Soundswell

Awesome foursome of Aussie musos locked in for summer music festival in Morpeth

Prepare for a free all ages evening of live music and entertainment at Queens Wharf, Morpeth, as Make it Maitland presents Soundswell, a summer celebration on the banks of the Hunter River on Saturday 13 January.

Soundswell features an impressive lineup of popular Aussie musos, including alt pop singer songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke, electropop act Boo Seeka, Hunter native Kira Puru, and Newcastle based indie rock band The Appointments.

Maitland City Council’s Coordinator City Events and Activation Adam Franks says, ‘Soundswell promises an unforgettable experience for the community, featuring nationally recognised musical acts, family friendly activities and a diverse selection of food offerings from local vendors.’

‘As shown by last year’s hugely popular Morpeth Bicentenary event, Queens Wharf Park makes for a perfect picturesque backdrop for a summery celebration of music,’ Mr Franks said.

In addition to bringing some seriously impressive musical acts to Morpeth, Council is excited to collaborate with local businesses to bolster Morpeth’s reputation as a popular day trip and overnight destination in the Hunter.

Lisa Simmonds-Webb, President of the It Must Be Morpeth Business Association says, ‘Soundswell will not only showcase the incredible musical talent of Australia but highlight Morpeth’s unique charm and boutique offerings, and we look forward to welcoming a host of visitors to Morpeth’.
