Grace Chia 6:50pm

Grace Chia is an emerging solo MC and RnB artist based in Hobart. Her music comprises a unique sound built upon her roots in poetry and RnB with a twist of hard hitting bars and boom-bap beats. You can expect deep-thought lyricism, soulful melodies and raw performances with her heart worn proudly on her sleeve. Grace uses her music to inspire and speak on racism, womanhood and the power in your flaws and differences.

Swaz Benjamin 8:10pm

Tasmanian wordsmith Swaz Benjamin's songwriting and performances are marked by his free-flowing storytelling, party-starting and poetics. His subject matter is life - balancing introspection with community, local with global, and the past with the future. His music is founded in the soulful, boom-bap Hip hop of his youth while incorporating progressive arrangements, dusty samples, electronic production and live instrumentation.
