About the event

Donny Benét

“Jeffrey Lebowski, it is “The Dude”, Donny Benét, it is “The Don”. Quite simply.”

Praised and panned by critics as “Prince on a serious budget cut”, Donny Benét is best described as the favourite nephew to Uncles Giorgio Moroder, Alan Vega and Michael McDonald. 

Hailing from Australia, Benét’s debut album Don’t Hold Back confused and intrigued many whilst quickly establishing him as a cult figure in the Australian music scene. Donny’s piece de resistance The Don, which featured the breakthrough single Konichiwa, facilitated his first invitation to tour Europe in 2018. In no time at all Europe had caught a fever that only Donny could quell each time he returned to perform. America’s first taste of The Don came in 2019 with Donny supporting Mac DeMarco. Returning in early 2020 for his first sold out headline tour, Donny’s acclaimed album Mr Experience was released soon after.

2022 saw the release of Le Piano alongside another successful North American tour.

A perfectionist, Benét writes, performs and records entirely by himself at the renowned Donnyland Studios. Vintage synthesisers and drum machines are used exclusively by Donny when presenting his hot takes on life, love and relationships. A masterful bassist, his songs are instantly recognised by their signature basslines, which guarantee to get you up and keep you on the dance floor.

Touring Europe and the US since 2018, Donny regularly sells out headline shows and has performed at festivals such as Pukkelpop, Green Man Festival, Rock Werchter, Down the Rabbit Hole, Pohoda Festival, Zomerparkfeest and Rock For Churchill to name a few.

When you need the one who will deliver it – you know you’ve got to call…“Mr Experience”

Well Well Well

Well Well Well, The Arnold Palmer of Modern Pop Music. An unmistakable blend of genres uniquely crafted by multi-instrumentalists Daniel Nichols and Seton Edgerton. Drawing inspiration from the multiple Airbnb writing sessions across the Southern California mountains and deserts. Recent collaborations with Company Records (Toro Y Moi) jazz duo The Mattson 2 resulted in a musical journey into unchartered waters that paint a detailed canvas of improvisational imaginations. The pair of duos were able to fuse their inherent jazz instincts with melodic pop songwriting into songs you’ll sing all day long. Catchy hooks in new tricks. Palm Springs is set for release early 2022 with multiple singles set for release mid-2022. Currently touring as a 6 piece band.
