This Is Just A Tribute Festival debuts this April; audience to pick setlists

The choice is yours!

This Is Just A Tribute Festival – Australia’s first-ever family friendly outdoor festival featuring some of the world’s best tribute acts – is set to touch down in the picturesque surrounds of the Snowy Mountains’ Lake Jindabyne this Easter Long Weekend – and the festival wants you to help plan the music.

Taking place on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 April, iconic Australian artists will play homage to the world’s biggest band alongside a lineup of internationally acclaimed tribute acts, performing some of the greatest music released across the last four decades.

Leading the way will be Australian Rock Collective (ARC), who will bring their critically-acclaimed celebration of The Beatles‘ songbook to the festival. Featuring Kram (Spiderbait), Mark Wilson (Jet), Davey Lane (You Am I) and Darren Middleton (Powderfinger), this is a true supergroup of Australian proportions, and the best part is – they are also huge The Beatles’ fans.
