Just over a week from when it was first announced, Melbourne’s upcoming April Sun concert series has expanded, with some big names being added to the bill.

First detailed earlier this month, April Sun is set to serve as a mixed bag of musical events, serving up headline concerts, mini-festivals, day parties, and family programming. Held in the grounds of the St Kilda Triangle, directly adjacent to the iconic Palais Theatre, patrons will be allowed to book single tickets and choose their own seats, in a move that brings back the feeling of concerts in a pre-COVID world.

With the likes of You Am I, Magic Dirt, and ChillinIT on the inaugural bill, in addition to events that serve up names like G Flip, Hiatus Kaiyote, and Sneaky Sound System, the upcoming festival already found itself stacked to the brim, though organisers have now found a way to add more to the stellar lineup.

Announced this morning, the second lineup announcement for April Sun sees proceedings kicked off by The Church and Bob Evans on April 15th, while Leo Sayer, Marcia Hines, and Kylie Auldist all feature on the same April 23rd lineup. Meanwhile, April 25th sees the weekend closed out with the likes of OPIUO, BLANKE (ÆON:MODE), and special guests joining the festivities.

Tickets to the new April Sun shows are on sale from 1pm on Tuesday, March 16th, with the full rundown of events and dates available below.
