Dylan White - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Dylan White
Dylan White is an up-and-coming singer songwriter based in New York City. He is originally from a small town in Southwest Virginia.

Jess Cornelius - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Jess Cornelius
Jess Cornelius is the New Zealand-born songwriter, singer and instrumentalist behind Teeth & Tongue. Over the course of four critically-acclaimed albums, Teeth & Tongue gradually morphed from a solo project into a more collaborative ‘band-like’ affair, culminating in the 2016 album ‘Give Up On Your Health’, which was released through Dot Dash/Remote Control in Australia and Dot Dash/ Captured Tracks in North America.
The album was nominated for a J Award and the Australian Music Prize, named Album of the Week on 3RRR and Feature Album on Double J, and featured in Rolling Stone US, The Fader and Lena Dunham’s Lenny magazine.
Now Jess Cornelius is focusing on a new solo project under her own name, with material that is more stripped back, personal and lyrically direct. Her solo performances showcase her voice and songwriting to full effect as she performs new music from her upcoming release, out in late 2017.
Jess Cornelius has performed at Laneway Festival, Meredith Music Festival, Falls Festival, Boogie, SXSW, CMJ, Perth International Arts Festival and Darwin Festival.
She has toured with Courtney Barnett and Vance Joy and performed as a musical guest on several episodes of SBS Television’s ‘Rockwiz’ series. She has also supported J Mascis, Sons & Daughters, EMA, Juana Molina, The Dodos, The Mountain Goats, the Drones and Laura Marling, and in 2013 was invited to make an EP in public at the National Gallery of Victoria.
Jess Cornelius’s new solo EP is due for release later this year. First single ‘Jealousy’ premiered on NYLON on August 11.
Jason Consolacion - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Jason Consolacion
Jason Consolacion is a NYC-based singer-songwriter who's style of rock is influenced by the folk subtleties of Paul Simon and the pop/R&B sensitivities of Stevie Wonder. His most recent album, a self-titled EP available on Apple Music and Spotify, was accepted by the Recording Academy for Grammy consideration in 2014, and tracks accepted for consideration in 2015. The Houston Chronicle described Jason's music as, "a comfortable blend of pop hooks, easy guitar riffs and confident vocals."
Polar Planet - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Polar Planet
Every musical career has twists, turns and unpredictability throughout. But, when two musicians on tour with two different bands meet by accident on a party boat in Austin, TX those musical paths would take them on one serendipitous journey. For singer/song-writer Eric Paquette and keyboardist Zack Cross, it took being re-introduced a year later to recollect that hazy day at SXSW under the beaming Texas sunshine. Neither could have predicted that they would form the entity soon to be known as Polar Planet a year later and that they would be opening for Panic! At The Disco and Atlas Genius in front of 5,000 people, without even having a single song released.

“Music doesn’t come alive unless you have the right architects to construct the sound. One thing that stands true throughout everyone’s musical background, there is no right or wrong way to approach music”, says Paquette.

With that goal in mind the two came together to create art in its purest form. Starting from Paquette’s skeletons of chords, both melodies and lyrics began to emerge and flow out like a rushing waterfall. It was instant chemistry. Soon after when Monte Arnstam hopped on drums, Reed Sutherland picked up the bass guitar, and Killian Karlsson slung on his Stratocaster, Polar Planet was fully formed.

Lush synthesizers, blistering leads, and heavy synth bass are just some of the textures that resonate throughout the songs of Polar Planet. Reminiscent of such scene 90’s alternative stalwarts as Third Eye Blind while channeling the indie-pop feel of both Bad Suns & Bear Hands, Polar Planet is poised to break out in 2016. Their first single will be heard soon and the ears that it hits will be gleaming with joy.
