The Drones

Melbournes THE DRONES will form part of Fairgrounds newly introduced opening night, kicking off the weekends festivities in characteristic style. Peerless, subversive and exhilarating, The Drones have spent the last 15 years as an irrepressible creative force in Australian music.

Breaking through with the gruelling garage of 2005’s Australian Music Prize winning Wait Long By the River and the Bodies of Your Enemies Will Float By, the five-piece have carved an oeuvre strewn with gritty storytelling, manic rock and aching ballads laced with human frailty. Fresh from the release of their acclaimed new album Feelin Kinda Free, The Drones promise to make revellers cheer, convulse, squirm and stand in awe.
