Our all ages project Indent is thrilled to announce the local support acts for the 2015 Indent Tour, headlined by Aussie rockers Hands Like Houses and supported by Brisbane pop-punkers Columbus between September 25 – October 4 in Campbelltown, Orange, Scone, Batemans Bay, Goulburn and Sydney. Keeping with the spirit of past Indent tours, the 2015 support act program is designed to provide young and emerging musicians in regional NSW with an educational and practical platform to develop their performance skills and generate further live performance opportunities. The support acts will be given the chance to work with a professional production team, showcase their talent to a large audience and share the stage with a nationally recognised performing artist.

Kicking off the first show of the tour in Campbeltown are pop punk trio The Dirty Reeds and indie rockers The Last Exposure. 

Warming the stage in Orange will be post-rock act Godfrey Turner Overdrive and grunge outfit Acrylic Acid.

Pop-rock act Mild Manic will be bringing their high energy to the Batemans Bay and will be joined by alt rock band Colourblind.

In Scone will be metalcore quintet The Affronted and local DJ prodigies Overwatch Suspense. 

Over in Goulburn, garage-punk acts Corpus and Propeller will be rocking out the stage.

And for our first ever Sydney show – thanks to City of Sydney – alt–rock metal core group Vanity Riots and hard rock band Fifth Dawn will take the support reigns.
