Springtime is a new-formed trio that exceeds the sum of its considerable parts; Gareth Liddiard (The Drones / Tropical F*ck Storm), Jim White (Dirty Three / Xylouris White), and Chris Abrahams (The Necks).

The wild and beautiful music conjured by these three titans of Australia’s cultural landscape has a breathtaking grandeur and flourish. Each known for their mesmerising performances - Liddiard as an incandescent frontman and razor-sharp lyricist; White as one of the world’s most poetic and hypnotic drummers; and Abrahams as a pianist of profound spiritual spaciousness - the coming together of Springtime is an intoxicating merger of sonic worlds and emotional power.

Switched On flicks the switch on an iconic venue and activates the Hall in a new light. A sonic shift to contemporary music and exciting new sounds in a sublime acoustic space.
