There’s a lot of love for these guys here in Australia (one of their best performing markets) and it’s been over two years since the full band last toured here. But the good news is, they’re pumped to get back to our shores after being reminded of just how fun our Aussie audiences are when they headlined Snowtunes with a DJ set earlier this month.

Piers Agget enthuses, "We can't wait to come out to Australia again. It feels like our second home, we're gonna be playing the new album and touring with new singers and bringing a new spin on that Rudimental vibe".

Frances Folk Gathering
Date Fri 21st Feb 2020 to Sun 23rd Feb 2020
Each year on the last weekend in February, the tiny village of Frances (on the Victorian/South Australian border, about 50 kilometres south of Bordertown) opens its doors and its hearts to hold the Frances Folk Gathering - a huge collection of musicians, dancers, artists, buskers and just plain ordinary folk for a weekend of music, fun and laughter.

Most folk set up camp or park a caravan at the local oval for accommodation. Amenities there are basic but comfortable (toilets and showers, but no power) so come prepared to be reasonably self-sufficient. There are food stalls at the Frances Folk Gathering, and there is an excellent dining room at the local hotel.

The Frances Folk Gathering is about being in the festival, not just at it - there are plenty of opportunities to join in, whether it's as a performer, busker, a workshop or just taking in the energy.
