AWME is excited to add the following artists including; Byron Bay local & multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Pete Murray who will hit the AWME stage for the very first time; as well as Sydney-based artist Declan Kelly presenting his Diesel 'n' Dub project, paying homage to the classic Midnight Oil album by giving it his reggae-dub treatment.

Other homegrown acts making their debut appearances will be Melbourne-based lasses and soul sistas Chelsea Wilson and Rita Satch, who will showcase their take of modern day jazz and soul; as well musical explorers Oh Pep! with their contemporary folk.

Representing the Northern Territory are three very diverse artists on the CAAMA Music label including singer Cassandra Williams; Stewart Gaykamangu who will release his debut solo album in October, as well as desert reggae group Tjintu Desert Band, who will travel from the remote community of Ikuntji (Haasts Bluff) west of Alice Springs.
