SATURDAY 17 JUNE
LEWIS WATSON (UK)
Ft. Winterbourne, Mike Waters
One of UK’s hottest singer/songwriters LEWIS WATSON is returning to Australian shores this June in support of his sensational as yet unreleased second album midnight.
The rising troubadour, known for his impressive live shows, will treat fans to a collection of striking new tracks that have yet to be played live, as well as fan favourites that will have hearts melting everywhere.
After gaining the worlds attention through his monumental stripped-back YouTube tracks, LEWIS WATSON has cemented himself as a powerful force, being compared to icons like Ed Sheeran and Bon Iver.
