The Sounds of Winter Program has announced the final addition to Melbourne's Leaps and Bounds Festival, orchestrating two musical events featuring local acts to close out the festival for 2017.
The closing parties are spearheaded by the 11-piece Melbourne outfit Billy Davis and the Good Lords, kicking things off with their groove heavy blend of neo-soul/hip-hop at The Nightcat on Saturday July 22. Joining them will be the Afro-funk grooves of collaborative group Cool Out Sun featuring the REMI mastermind Sensible J, as well as hip-hop artists Jordan Dennis and MzRizk, rounding out a formidable lineup.
Leaps and Bounds have also announced the inclusion of Hip-Hop Hooray – Deadly Style, an all-ages showcase of Indigenous Aussie hip-hop at The Melba Spiegeltent on the Sunday - because one party is never enough. Boasting an impressive lineup featuring Jimblah, Philly and Lady Lash, Hip-Hop Hooray offers punters a small taste of some of the best young Indigenous hip-hop artists today, promising to end the Leaps and Bounds Festival in style.
The ten day music and cultural event hosted by the Yarra City Council will take place between Thursday July 13 – Sunday 23, opening the door to a plethora of unique bars, clubs, record and music stores throughout the city.
