Gig Information

Award winning Nashville songwriter Justin Townes Earle will return to the festival since his appearance in 2014 for a highly anticipated show of both new and well-loved material with backing band The Sadies.

Since launching his recording career a decade ago, Justin Townes Earle has established a reputation as a singular leading light in the Americana music community. With fearless, personally charged lyrical insight and infectious melodic craftsmanship, the young veteran singer-songwriter has built a rich body of work, with his latest album, Kids In The Street, receiving dazzling reviews from The Rolling Stone and being named as his best work in decades.

He'll be supported by Ontario-based country-rock quartet, The Sadies, who's masterful new album, Northern Passages, offers up a country sound spiked by psychedelia and punk attitude.

Now in its fourth year The Great South Pacific Tuning Fork, 95bFM and Under The Radar with support from Jim Beam, are proud to announce the lineup for the Southern Fork Americana Fest 2017 as it returns full steam this October.

2017's lineup brings together a stellar cast of local and international names in alt-country. This year includes lauded Nashville-born songwriter Justin Townes Earle with support from Canadian-based quartet The Sadies. With 20 albums under their belt, USA cult favourites Son Volt will hit The Tuning Fork for the first time as will Grammy nominee (Best Folk album & Best American roots song) Robbie Fulks. Jonny Fritz, Robert Ellis and Cory Chisel return with their super group side project Traveller with support from Nashville's rising star Joshua Hedley.

This year's lineup also includes a heady dose of New Zealand's finest, with beloved folk-noir act Eb & Sparrow launching the festival in style on a double bill with country-folk darlings The Miltones. Followed the next night by local legends The Eastern with The Bads. The Shape I'm In: Hootenanny & BBQ will also make a welcomed return after its successful debut last year.

2017 also sees festival passes available for the first time since the festival's debut in 2014. Passes will be in limited supply, so snap one up quickly before they sell out.
