Headlining the Sunday, the audience will be mesmerised by another exclusive Australian performance, this time by the electrifying Beck and his full band. The eight-time Grammy-winner has been a generational spokesperson since his explosive hit Loser took the world by storm in 1994.

If you’re in the mood to hit the dance floor, look no further than the ultimate disco superstars, Nile Rodgers & Chic, who will undoubtedly bring their infectious hits Le Freak and Good Times to the Harvest Stage.

Flight Facilities, the Australian mastermind duo, will be taking over the Vines Stage on Saturday with their fan-favourite Decades DJ set, followed by Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo, and New Zealand’s ultra-talented artist, Ladyhawke, who is sure to keep the good vibes flowing.

Homegrown talent is well-represented at Harvest Rock II, with beloved musician Paul Kelly captivating the audience with his poetic lyrics. Sharing the stage will be ARIA Award winners Baker Boy, Julia Jacklin, and the much-awaited return of Chet Faker, playing his first shows in Australia since 2019.

Local favourites Ocean Alley will rock the stage alongside Bad//Dreems, Thelma Plum, Vera Blue, and The Rolling Stone Revue—featuring Adalita of Magic Dirt, Tex Perkins, and Tim Rogers of You Am I, who will deliver a full-blown rock n’ roll spectacle with the Rolling Stones’ greatest hits.

The American flavour takes over on Sunday, with the genre-bending Santigold gracing the Vines Stage. Known for her eclectic artistry, Santigold’s live show is a visual and auditory delight. Joining the party all the way from California, the legendary Sparks, stars of Edgar Wright’s recent acclaimed documentary The Sparks Brothers, will make a historic appearance. As we eagerly await their set, we can’t help but reminisce about the timeless Sparks classics that have shaped music over five decades.

Completing the all-American affair on Sunday are the much-awaited reunions of indie rockers Bright Eyes, along with The Lemon Twigs and Built to Spill, ensuring an unforgettable conclusion to the Harvest Rock II festivities.

“Harvest Rock is back!” Secret Sounds Co-CEO, Jessica Ducrou says. “We are so excited to present another weekend of incredible music, food, wine, and good times at Harvest Rock II. We’ve lined up some of the world’s most iconic international artists, alongside stellar talent from our own shores, and paired it with the best food and wine offerings from South Australia.

“At Harvest Rock there’s something for everyone; enjoy our cellar door pop-up, or an exclusive lunch at the pop-up Wildwood restaurant by Jake Kellie. We have Little Harvest for the little ones and The Grape Escape wellness precinct for those wanting some well-deserved R&R. Join us in October and experience Harvest Rock II in all its glory.”
