Bring on November and those Sunset Sounds
by Mornington Peninsula Magazine

Thanks to Empire Touring and TEG Live, we can count down the days to Sunset Sounds music festival at the Hastings Foreshore Reserve on Sunday, November 28. Tickets will sell fast because this stellar bill of Australian singer-songwriters isn’t short of fans – acts include Xavier Rudd, Pete Murray, Kasey Chambers, The Church, Josh Pyke, Ben Lee, Kyle Lionhart and D’arcy Spiller.

elf-described “vibe creator” Marc Christoski is the man behind Empire Touring, a family business committed to bringing live music to the people since 1982. Marc began his rock ‘n’ roll career in the ‘80s as a band photographer shooting a who’s who of Australian music – from Cold Chisel to Radio Birdman to Moving Pictures, the list goes on. He progressed to promoting bands and stayed with it. Marc is doing all he can to support the return of live music here in Australia, and Sunset Sounds is kicking things off. “We are thrilled to bring together a line-up of some of Australia’s most awesome live acts,” says Marc. “What can be better than kicking back watching the likes of Xavier, Pete and Kasey?”

For those who haven’t yet discovered the indie folk sounds of relative newcomer Melbourne-born D’arcy Spiller, you’re in for a treat. Ditto the soul-filled songs of Kyle Lionhart, who started out bringing his music to the people busking on the streets of his home town Byron Bay.

Excited to be headlining the event, Xavier Rudd says: “It’s been a very long time since I’ve been to the Mornington Peninsula and I’m stoked to be travelling there for Sunset Sounds festival. This is gonna be a special day on magical Bunurong Country. Let’s light it up! Can’t wait!
