Courtney Barnett has announced details of her own touring festival called Here and There.
Across August and early September, the Aussie singer-songwriter will host a travelling roadshow featuring the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Japanese Breakfast, Waxahatchee, Lucy Dacus, Snail Mail, Alvvays, Julia Jacklin, Wet Leg and many, many more.
“When I was a kid I would make mixtapes and dream up my own festivals, I’d even design the T-shirts and pair up musicians for iconic collaborations. I’d listen to the mixtape and pretend it was the live recording of a concert, all my favourite artists on stage together,” Barnett said of the inspiration behind the festival.
“Ten years ago I wrote this lyric: ‘I got lost somewhere between here and there, I’m not sure what the town was called.’ Whether that was meant to be interpreted as a geographical, emotional or philosophical journey, I thought it was the perfect title for my roaming festival.”
