Adam Gibson & The Ark-Ark Birds

When ADAM GIBSON opened the intimate Newtown Social Club Stage at the inaugural Fairgrounds Festival in 2015, we knew we’d seen something special. Suffice to say it say it was alright. Suffice to say it wasn’t bad.

Without singing a note, the former frontman for The Aerial Maps and Modern Giant conjured a city, a country, populated with idiosyncratic characters, complex motivations, belly laughs and plenty of regrets.

Unbelievably witty and often impossibly true, Gibson’s unpretentiously spoken tales puncture the frail partitions dividing history, nostalgia and fiction to create something more perfect: boundless Australian story-telling. We proudly welcome back Adam Gibson & The Ark-Ark Birds to inaugurate the Newtown Social Club stage for a second year in a row.
